Beautiful Retreat in Blithedale Canyon
www.1winwoodplace.com Located in a prime location and steeped in architectural history, 1 Winwood Place is a rare find: a home reminiscent of a tranquil Old English country retreat, yet a short walk to downtown Mill Valley. Cross the home’s private bridge over Corte Madera Creek and enter a quiet, enchanted property with abundant sunlight, a large level lawn, mature landscaping, stone pathways leading to an idyllic “kids beach,” and multiple outdoor sitting and dining areas. The same contractor built this stunning residence as the Pelican Inn in Muir Beach, and its craftsmanship is one-of-kind. The interior features massive 16” beams salvaged from the Tiburon Railroad Trestle, 3.5” floor planks and ceiling joists from an old high school in San Rafael, and bricks from the Whiskey Springs Distillery in Sausalito, which was destroyed by fire in 1963. The dreamy clawfoot tub in the principal suite was traced to the legendary Sally Stanford, infamous San Francisco brothel owner and former Sausalito mayor. The +/- 2,840 square foot home brims with warmth and character and features an open floor plan designed for grand-scale entertaining and intimate family gatherings. It seamlessly integrates classic design materials including old-growth timber, plaster walls, stone countertop kitchen and bathrooms, and magazine-worthy, designer finishes. The highly desirable (and rarely available) floor plan offers four bedrooms on the upper level, a library/media room located on the main level, and ample storage. Each room features unique breathtaking views of nature.
