Singular opportunity to acquire one of the Ross Valley’s most iconic mid-century residences! Designed by owner/influencer and published author architect Sarah Robinson (www.srarchitect.com), the 6 bedroom, 5 bathroom stucco and Ipe sided residence has been fully restored with authentic mid-century, high-end designer finishes throughout. Previously featured in Elle Décor Magazine, the residence blends Classic Heath tile, warm African Mahogany cabinetry, chic mid-century inspired lighting, original redwood paneling, and hugely scaled open living spaces that are seamlessly blended for a timeless aesthetic throughout. The heart of the home is a grand scale great room with soaring ceilings and infinite natural light that opens directly to a secondary outdoor kitchen, massive deck exterior entertaining area. The optimal floor plan allows for maturing families with three bedrooms, including the primary suite on the upper level, two additional en-suite bedrooms on the lower level, and a brand new detached legal ADU with en-suite bedroom, full kitchen, and additional walk-in storage room. In addition to the magazine worthy main level great room, there is a secondary family room/media room, ideally located on the lower level, ideal for maturing children. The outstanding, mature grounds include old growth trees, stacked stone walls, artful garden ornamentation, mature plantings, a large level lawn, adjacent play structure space, huge Bluestone patio with al fresco dining area, and grand scale deck (+- 600 square feet) that offers sweeping valley, ridge line, and East Bay views. Both residences are located in a very close in location, just blocks to the Woodlands Market, highly ranked K-8th grade Kentfield schools, bike path, local biking and hiking trails, and just feet away from the Ross border.

Neighborhood Gallery

152 Hillside Avenue

Some of the most beautiful properties in Marin can be found in Kentfield, a quiet community of spacious, older homes sited on large, lushly landscaped parcels.
The nerve center of this small, residential community is perhaps Woodlands Market, a unique gourmet grocery store, bakery, wine bar, and cafe. For more than 25 years, Woodlands Market has been the place where Kentfield residents can socialize and shop and the same time.

Kentfield is home to the College of Marin, a two-year community college with a strong local presence. The College of Marin offers adult classes to the public and has a vibrant performing-arts program of theater, vocal, and classical music. The frequent public performances provide residents with access to culture not normally found in a community of fewer than 7,000 residents.
