Home of the Week: View-swept Sausalito townhome

An exhilarating panorama of the ever-changing San Francisco Bay defines this spacious and luxurious modern townhome at 331 Sausalito Boulevard.

The drama begins in the expansive living/dining space, where soaring ceilings and picture windows frame breathtaking views over Old Town Sausalito and across the Bay from Angel Island to the East Bay.

This light, refined setting is enhanced by new wider-plank white oak floors, designer lighting and a glowing gas fireplace. Up a short flight of stairs, a bright, open room looks out across the living room to the vista, making it ideal for a den/family retreat or more formal dining room.

French doors open to a large private deck with extraordinary views. The bright kitchen with breakfast area is home to quality stainless appliances including a Sub Zero refrigerator and a new Bertazzoni 36″ gourmet gas-burning stovetop.

Two large downstairs bedroom suites are highlighted by a master retreat with views from both bedroom and bath.

There are three closets, an additional storage space and a separate vanity area. The second suite has an exterior entry plus sliding doors that open to a private view deck.

An elevator accesses the street and both levels of the home, which is situated in a great private location at the end of an enclave of just four townhomes. There are two covered parking spaces plus additional guest parking.

Close to Bridgeway Avenue, Old Town Sausalito and the Golden Gate Bridge, this Bay view beauty is listed by Susan Van Liere at $1,695,000.
