Features

The modern farmhouse is redefined by Architect, Barbara Chambers, and Jennifer Tidwell of Piper Sage Design in this 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath new construction home. Nestled amongst the hills on a 19,000 sq. ft. flat lot this luxury residence is walking distance to the thriving and charming shops and cafes in downtown Larkspur. The high concept floor plan is dramatic yet extremely practical comprised of a large entertaining wing that is connected via a sleek metal and glass atrium to a separate private wing that houses the bedrooms, family room and office. The great room has double height vaulted ceilings with reclaimed wood trusses, La Cantina bi-fold doors on both sides of the room, creating a seamless indoor/outdoor transition to the patio, lawn and built-in BBQ. The kitchen is aesthetically impactful with a gorgeous Calcutta marble island, built-in breakfast nook and La Cornu, Cornufe stainless and brass range. Most of the appliances are thoughtfully tucked away in the Butler’s pantry creating a dining and entertaining experience that feels more like a stylish restaurant.

The family wing has a practical mudroom right off the two car garage, an office/5th bedroom, full laundry room with farm sink and a spacious family room with French doors leading to the fire pit. Upstairs are 4 bedrooms all with lovely outlooks to the hills, built-in custom cabinetry, high end finishes and designer lighting. The luxurious master suite is conveniently private with its own hallway, large walk in closet and has a freestanding pedestal tub, large rain shower head and custom dual vanity in the bathroom.

This property is ideal for larger families who want privacy, easy access to town, the shopping boutiques, and the freeway without a lot of local traffic. Larkspur is the “in spot” in Marin right now with the newly opened Equator coffee and the new shops on the promenade. For people moving from the city seeking warmer weather the micro-climate in Larkspur is significantly nicer than Mill Valley or Tiburon. 31 Orange inspires creative energy through its artful design and top notch construction craftsmanship by Postcard Properties. The word is out and people are saying that this property is going to be a game changer for Larkspur. It will certainly make a life changing impact on your family and friends and all who get to experience this ground breaking luxury residence.

Neighborhood


Larkspur

One of the most spectacular features of houses in Larkspur is the scenery surrounding them. Redwoods rule in Larkspur. In Baltimore Park and Baltimore Canyon, giant redwoods grow straight out of the road, while the streets gently curve their way around these massive trees. 

Tucked away under the redwoods beneath Mount Tamalpais, Larkspur boasts a great dining scene. The main street, Magnolia Avenue, is a vibrant destination for food lovers who frequent restaurants such as Pizzeria Picco, Emporio Rulli, and the Left Bank Brasserie. The Lark Theater, also on Magnolia, has been restored to its art-deco glory by a community effort and screens first-run films.

The Larkspur and Corte Madera Creek paths run a few blocks parallel to Magnolia on a former railroad right-of-way and are popular with families, dog walkers, and bikers on their way to Point Reyes.
