October 17, 2019 | Source: Compass California Real Estate Blog

Tucked away in the leafy world of Sleepy Hollow in San Anselmo, this masterfully renovated family home makes the most of its green, light-filled setting, with vast windows and five new Scandinavian ash decks surveying the canyon and rolling wooded hills.

Measuring over 3,400 square feet, the two-story residence at 230 Oakcrest Road in San Anselmo centers around a spectacular great room with a soaring pitched ceiling and a massive wall of windows framing glorious San Anselmo views. The space embraces open living and dining areas plus a stunning Carrara marble kitchen with top-of-the-line stainless appliances, expansive marble island and huge walk-in pantry. A separate bonus space with its own deck would make a wonderful kids’ music room or ultimate private retreat.

A stairway ascends to a second-level overlook and the upper bedrooms, highlighted by an elegant master retreat with spacious walk-in closets, a Carrara marble bath with luxurious steam shower, and private heated deck with three temperature zones.

A legal one-bedroom unit with a private entrance, ideal as an au pair quarters or rental,

includes a full kitchen with high-end appliances, a stylish full bath, washer/dryer hookups, and a private deck.

The property’s infrastructure has been extensively upgraded throughout, including new foundation, framing, sheetrock, steel-reinforced foam insulation, Hardiplank siding, lifetime composition shingle roof and Milgard double-paned Low E windows.

It also features new hydronic heating; heated garage floors; electrical, copper and pex tube plumbing, Nest thermostats, tankless on-demand water heater and driveway. A new level grass yard enhances the outdoor setting.

Extensively upgraded and beautifully envisioned, this expansive woodland retreat is listed by Amy Deming Simkins at $2,465,000.
