Welcome to 106 Locust Avenue! Situated in Mill Valley‘s most desirable neighborhood, Sycamore Park, this spectacularly renovated Dutch Colonial Farmhouse boasts incredible curb appeal, a modern entertainment-style layout, and a multitude of outdoor living areas.
Behind a white picket fence lies a lush lawn, leading the eye to the home's striking architecture. A large front porch welcomes visitors and is lined with durable Ipe wood. Convenient keyless entry by Yale grant access to the ultimate Northern California dream home that awaits inside! Spanning two levels and featuring five bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, this immaculate residence was extensively renovated in 2016.
A large, open great room connecting the chef's kitchen to the dining and living areas flows from front to back, with a collapsible wall opening to the gorgeously landscaped backyard. The layout is conducive to entertaining, whether it’s dinner parties, games nights, or outdoor barbecues!
The gleaming kitchen features a six-burner gas range by Wolf with hood ventilation, SubZero refrigerator freezer, Miele dishwasher, sink with disposal, hot/cold water dispenser, integrated microwave, and custom quiet-close cabinetry. Handsome Carrara marble counters run the perimeter with a breakfast bar peninsula dividing the kitchen from the dining room. Gorgeous gold pendants hang from above, illuminating the breakfast bar. The cabinets feature handy sliding shelves, an appliance garage, and space to hang wine glasses.
Period bay windows grace the kitchen and dining rooms, and (newly refinished) wide-plank European white oak floors warm up this stunning interior. The living room features custom built-ins and includes a Samsung flatscreen TV, Sonos soundbar, and most notably a huge collapsible wall that leads to the home’s verdant backyard. On a nice day, collapsing the wall easily doubles the living space!
Integrated speakers are flush-mounted into the ceilings and continue outdoors, piping your favorite tunes throughout. The backyard features a wood deck just off the living room, a large grass terrace, a concrete patio with plumbed fire pit, and a privacy fence around the perimeter. Soak in rays, entertain, garden, play with the kids, or just enjoy the fragrant, professionally landscaped space in a lounge chair. Starry nights by the fire pit are a huge attraction as well!
Accessed from the backyard is an au pair suite, which could easily double as a home office, media room, or guest quarters. This space features a walk-in closet and en suite bath.
Back inside the main house is a centrally-located powder room, laundry closet with Maytag washer and dryer, and pantry. Rounding out the first level is bedroom number five, which could also be purposed into a home office or otherwise. This bedroom also features a private, en suite bath.
Upstairs and secluded for privacy at the rear of the property is the primary bedroom suite. This peaceful refuge offers a huge walk-in closet, luxuriously appointed bath, and unobstructed Mt. Tam views from the bed. The primary bathroom features dual vanities, an oversized stall shower with tub inside, multiple showerheads, beautiful marble tiles in a herringbone pattern within the shower stall. A separate water closet completes the bathroom.
Just off the upper hallway are two spacious bedrooms, both with walk-in closets, views to Mt. Tam and the surrounding hills, and a gorgeous full bath on the hallway. All bedrooms on the top floor have built-in storage systems in the closets, and discreet storage cubbies are located in the front bedroom.
The seller added a garage following the 2016 renovation. The garage space is currently utilized as a rec room and storage area. The space could easily be converted back to a garage if desired. The home also offers two car parking on the driveway and includes a Tesla charger and basketball hoop. HORSE anyone?
An exhaustive list of amenities awaits the lucky new owner, including Nest thermostats, Nest protects, tankless hot water, air conditioning in select rooms, soundproofing for the primary bedroom suite, and much more. All this just steps to downtown Mill Valley, easy 101 access, above the Miller Creek floodplain, and on one of Sycamore Park’s best blocks, hands down.
