Known as the Thomas Frost House, this rarely available 1901 Sausalito estate has been recently renovated to accommodate modern high-tech conveniences, yet retains its original style, grace, and elegance.  Both the Main House, a noteworthy structure in Sausalito, and the detached Guesthouse are sited to provide truly stunning, unobstructed Bay views from Angel Island to San Francisco.  Besides the stellar views, the home is just as stunning inside and out.  High-end materials, custom craftsmanship and detailing throughout, all beautifully planned and orchestrated in exacting detail.

The 5 Bedrooms and 4 1/2 Baths in the Main House with an au pair suite, accompany 4 fireplaces (3 gas / 1 wood burning), radiant-heated European white oak floors throughout, marble tile, custom crown & baseboard moldings, and custom cabinetry.  The open Kitchen features an 8-burner Wolf range, quartzite counter tops, Sub-zero refrigerator, dual Fisher & Paykel “in-cabinet” drawer dishwashers, and floor-to-ceiling folding doors to an outside dining, entertaining and view deck.  A wine cellar is adjacent to the large indoor Entertainment / Media room, which connects to a separate outdoor entertaining area, fully plumbed & wired for a complete outdoor kitchen and fire pit.  The separate 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Guesthouse includes a wood-burning fireplace and a separate street address with private entrance. Dual-electric car charging stations at the driveway, CAT-6 wired for full “Smart Home System” & remote capability, solar-ready, gated entries with integrated security system.

Located within close walking proximity of restaurants, ferry and bus transportation, beaches, and just minutes to the Golden Gate Bridge to San Francisco.  The setting is the sunny Banana Belt, framed by 100 year old palms providing a picturesque Italian Riviera setting.  Imagine, watch the tides change and the sailboats glide by, while sipping your morning cappuccino or watching another glorious sunset and the San Francisco skyline.
