40 Fairway Drive San Rafael CA 94901
The way we see it… Proudly set upon a magnificent south-facing 1.6acre San Rafael Country Club promontory, this outstanding 1938 creation is so much more than the sum if its considerable parts, as it was clearly conceived with a magnanimous spirit including a vision of its future as a cherished gathering place to be continuously shared and enjoyed with family and friends.
This gracious home is comprised of a 5 bedroom 6+ bath main house, and a charming 2 bedroom 1 bath guest cottage. Over the years, this treasured home has received ongoing care and updating. More recently, the kitchen and family room were reconfigured and finished with only the finest materials and appliances, including Calacatta honed marble counter-top, Viking double ovens, Viking 6 burner induction cook-top, Scotsman Ice Maker, Du Veere and Schaub cabinet pulls, custom cabinets and dog feeding station.
Captivating San Francisco Bay View can be had from the private master suite that appropriately crowns the upper level of this generously and well-proportioned one-of-a-kind structure, each of its spacious main level bedrooms (3) has its own bathroom, and as formal as the living and dining rooms that surround a gracious foyer may seem, they are also want and inviting spaces that inspire frequent use. The veranda offers a ready option for indoor/outdoor entertaining and on days when indoors is preferable, the spacious recreation room awaits.
“This is truly a private estate…one of the original
Homes in a premier setting in the private enclave
of Country Club, where each home sits on over an acre.
The all-day sun and wonderful views of the bay, bridges
and mountains are ever changing. There is room for
everyone to spread out here, at the resort-like pool,
huge rec room, guest house, large en-suite bedrooms,
kitchen, great room, or the second-floor master suite with
two baths, sitting room, fireplace, balcony and bay views.
A true paradise with total privacy.” – Owner
