about this home's










Long regaled as one of Marin County’s most distinctive estates, 96 Avenue Del Norte, also known as “Heather Hill”, has been fully restored and shows beautifully throughout. Originally designed in 1934 by noted San Francisco architect Albert Farr (https://noehill.com/architects/farr.aspx), the current owners have completed a restoration of unparalleled scale and design.  The +-7,340 square foot compound (per Floor Plan Visuals) incorporates a 6 bedroom, 5 full, 2 half bathroom main residence; a +-560 square foot 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom guest house; a +-480 square foot detached home office with full bathroom; and +- 355 square foot gym/yoga studio. European inspired, gracious, and highly distinctive architectural details are evident throughout, with the incorporation of intricate moldings, stucco walls, leaded windows, chic, designer lighting, high-end fixtures, and a new/er slate roof. Rare artisanal details have created an estate of massive distinction. The heart of the house is a grand scale living room that opens directly to the resort like grounds and exterior living spaces. Seamless indoor/outdoor living is enjoyed from the living and family rooms, offering ample opportunity for grand scale entertaining and hosting of both small and large events. 96 Avenue Del Norte is perfectly site placed on a sprawling and highly private +-4 acres with “reach out and touch” Mt. Tam, Mt. Baldy, and Seminary views.  Reminiscent of Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, the recreational grounds include a large in-ground pool with adjacent grand scale lounging/entertaining space/s, new outdoor kitchen, large outdoor dining area, mature gardens and plantings, old growth trees, regulation size Bocce court, outdoor fireplace and secondary outdoor dining area, multiple fountains, and extensive walking paths throughout. Gated with a very long driveway and circular turnaround, the residence also offers off street parking for up to 15 cars in addition to the detached 2 car garage. Located just off the coveted flats of San Anselmo’s most desirable Winship Park neighborhood, and just blocks to downtown San Anselmo’s many fine shops and vibrant restaurants!

Neighborhood Gallery

96 Avenue Del Norte

Great weather, access to hiking and biking trails, good schools, and a strong, vibrant downtown make San Anselmo a desirable destination for Marin County homebuyers looking to live a little off the beaten track. The neighborhood surrounding the San Francisco Theological Seminary is a quiet, leafy enclave of large, older houses with well-tended yards. Heading up Butterfield Road will take you to the rolling hills above San Anselmo and sweeping views of the open spaces, grasslands, and oak trees of northern Marin County. Downtown, locals get their fill of delicious food at MH Bread and Butter or Cucina and and shop for clothing, gifts and accessories in many of the downtown boutiques. San Anselmo is a town made for strolling. Small shops and many restaurants line the main street, which backs onto the active San Anselmo Creek.
