EXPERIENCE 155 ROCK HILL:
A charming gate opens to the picturesque courtyard with a french limestone fountain. The inviting entry to the house features a groin-vaulted ceiling in custom plaster. Hand-scraped and waxed wood ceiling beams arch over the gracious living room, and large picture windows frame views spanning Richardson Bay, from Sausalito to Mt. Tamalpais. A wood burning herringbone fireplace is crowned by a mantel from one of San Francisco’s most iconic homes, and flanked by custom book shelves. The atmospheric dining room has French doors that open onto a generous view deck.
The gourmet kitchen is graced with custom wood cabinetry, Ann Sacks Provence pavers, limestone counters, a butcher block island with bar seating, custom pendants, and LED under-counter lights. Top-of-the-line appliances include a SubZero refrigerator and SubZero wine refrigerator, a Wolf range and Thermidor warming drawer, and a Bosch dishwasher and Fisher Paykel drawer dishwasher. The pantry offers generous storage. The family room and office are adjacent to kitchen, as is a powder room with limestone counter and custom copper sink.
The exquisite master suite is on the main level of the house. It features custom hand-scraped and waxed wood ceiling beams, a wood burning fireplace flanked by built-in bookshelves, a view deck, two walk-in closets, and a luxurious master bath with Ann Sacks tile, limestone counters and shower, dual vanities, and soaking tub.
The lower level of the home includes two en suite bedrooms, one guest bedroom, and a full guest bath. A second family room with custom cabinetry and refrigerator is in the center of the lower level, with French doors leading to the lower deck and the yard beyond. Also on this floor is the laundry room, an 800 bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar, and 500 square feet of bonus unfinished space, offering the potential for a home theatre or fifth bedroom.
The house is surrounded by lush, mature landscaping, spectacular gardens, and large flat lawns. A hot tub, an outdoor kitchen with fireplace, gaucho grill for mesquite cooking, and beverage refrigerator, are located off the lower deck. Tucked just beyond is a Holland Hen House chicken coop. Terraced lawns lead to four raised beds for cutting flowers and vegetables, and an orchard featuring Italian grafted fruit trees that yield four kinds of plums, peaches, apples, cherries, oranges, and lemons. An attached two car garage, plus off-street parking for two additional cars, completes the grounds.
