The luxurious and modern mansion at 1865 Centro West in Tiburon offers almost 7,000 square feet of living space – much of it steel and concrete framing great walls of glass. Levels are composed of tiers, with access to the surrounding views from both inside and outside the home.

It’s the $13.9 million creation of architecture firm Cheng Design, partnered with sellers Patrick McNerney and Jennifer Fitch’s expertise. McNerney is president of Martin Building Company and has worked with Cheng Design on several projects over the past 20 years. “Patrick and Jenn were their own interior designers,” listing agent Shana Rohde-Lynch said. “They selected all materials, finishes, furnishing and art.”
