5 Leeward Road, Belvedere
Offered At $2,975,000

This iconic Mid-Century home, designed by noted architect (and family member) Roy Starbird, has been owned by the same family for over 65 years and is now on the market for the very first time. Built in 1952 on the coveted Belvedere Lagoon, with an addition by Starbird in 1960, this 5-bedroom, 3-bath classic retains most of its original period detail and charm. Starbird's vision is everywhere: Natural wood elements, clear-heart redwood exterior shingles, hardwood and concrete flooring, solid mahogany interior walls, open-beamed ceilings, and windows and fireplace surrounds made of stained glass mosaic. 

Three of the bedrooms are located on the second floor, with a spacious study/play area at the top of the stairs. The master is located on the ground floor and a fifth bedroom off the carport can be used as an au pair bedroom or home office. The home wraps around a large yard which offers a great enclosed play area for children as well as the perfect setting for adult and family entertaining. The yard leads to a generous dock for boating and swimming. The placement of the 2,646 sq.ft. house on a 7,200 sq.ft. lot (per tax records) offers visual privacy from the water, a rare feature for Lagoon properties. Located just yards away from the Belvedere Community Center and within walking distance to downtown Tiburon and the San Francisco commuter ferries, this is the ideal family home. Painted and move-in ready for a you to make it your own!
