If your particular marital situation is seeking a compromise between the yen for adventures at sea and the instinct to stay home and entertain, consider this Marin Countyhome your very own marriage counselor.
On a private stretch of beach shared only with a few neighbors, this Belvedere Lagoon abode sits directly on the water. That means immediate access to your boat and paddleboard, not to mention a killer backdrop for parties. The house, of course, is designed for both casual living and grand-scale entertaining, with expansive open spaces punctuated by old growth palms and sweeping terraces. Imagine all the garden parties you will have!
When weather does not permit, the indoors are every bit as bright, with soaring ceilings and walls of glass that open to the outside from nearly every room. The maximalist host will relish a dining room that opens to the lagoon, not to mention the newly remodeled chef’s kitchen just waiting to cook up a feast.
When the last glass of bubbly has been drunk, you can cozy up next to the wood-burning fireplace in the living room and reflect upon the views. And when you’re ready to venture out, the home is also a quick walk to the restaurants and shops of downtown Tiburon.
