Palm Springs meets Marin in this ultra private 3,202+- sq ft 5 bedroom + office, 3 bath hillside oasis on 1.19-+ acres in desirable Fairhills with pool, hot tub, open space and Mt. Tam views! A private driveway framed with palm trees and lush mature landscaping leads you to this entertainer’s dream home with great scale throughout and excellent indoor/outdoor flow. There are conveniently no stairs to enter this southwest facing home. Once inside the grand entry on the main level you’ll appreciate the modern open concept kitchen/family/dining Great Room flooded with natural light that opens to the pool area. The chefs kitchen is the heart of this very special home and it features high-end stainless appliances including a Thermador double oven and 6 burner range, granite counters, abundant cabinet storage, wet bar and a butlers pantry with sink, cabinet storage, two wine refrigerators, and laundry. The family room with built-ins opens to a deck with views of the surrounding hills. Also located on the main level is the formal living room and the master suite with adjacent office. A private deck and patio with a majestic oak tree off of the master bath is the perfect setting for peaceful relaxation. Two more bedrooms and a full bath complete the main level interior living space.

The main level outdoor space fronts the entire property and is evocative of retro desert living. The hot tub is built into the hillside directly above the solar and gas heated pool with waterfall feature and the pool deck offers plenty of sunbathing and lounge areas to enjoy the sunny San Rafael weather.

The lower level of the home has been recently updated with brand new carpet, and features two enormous bedrooms and a remodeled full bath with dual vanity, natural stone counters, shaker-style cabinetry and an oversized stall shower.

The property is surrounded by mature, California native plants including oak trees, sage, coyote bush and seasonal wildflowers. A peaceful, private oasis away from it all, but close to schools, vibrant downtown San Rafael and charming San Anselmo, restaurants, and world-class hiking and biking trails. Original owners have lived in the home for 39 years, lovingly maintaining and updating it over the years. Seize this rare opportunity to make it your own!
