Golden Opportunity To Develop Prime Tiburon California Property

August 18, 2011 Leave a comment

Have a look at that view! Now have a read of the property description:

Tiburon, CA – 94920 – Single Family Home – $2,395,000 – 2 bed – 2 bath – Parking: 3 – Waterfront – Sqft: 1,650

Since constructed in 1951/52 this property has never been listed or offered for sale to the public. This home is located just over the Tiburon Bike Path and stretches all the way back to Tiburon Boulevard. There is not another home located on the Tiburon Bike Path that offers these views, size, level areas, and privacy.

Enjoy unobstructed views. (The house below can never build higher than it is because there is a height restriction within it’s deed) The real value here may be in the property’s potential.

According to architect Rodger Schow the property is 29,197 square feet with the potential to build up to a 5419.7 square foot home. The existing house is only 1678 square feet and reflects a one story one bedroom home, and a one story legal second unit/with permit.

Although there is access/steps to the bike path from the property that reach halfway down this property’s hillside over the path, typically access to the path is by taking a walk down Palmer Drive (the driveway below/south of this property) directly onto the path.

If that doesn’t sound like a golden opportunity for someone, then we don’t know what does.

We can’t resist sharing another photo of the views from that property in Winter up to Mt. Tamalpais that occasionally gets a dusting of snow.

To contact the agent and get more details about this property and opportunity for your buyers, check the property description page.

We just found this video of the property too…complete with Israel Kamakawiwo’ole music.

Mill Valley Real Estate Market Adds One More Pocket Listing To The Mix, We Dream Of Warm Summer Nights

Things are heating up for in Marin County, and Marin County is heating up for summer. We have more agents from all brokerages in Marin joining every day, which can only mean one thing…more opportunities for you in Marin County, California.

Have a look at this great home in the Strawberry neighborhood of Mill Valley:

For those of you reading this post outside of the San Francisco Bay Area, there is this great little recreation area know as Mt. Tamalpais that has some of the best cycling (road and mountain), and hiking in the country, and that is what you see right here, out this home’s window.

We got hung up on this little bit of description from the listing, “Enjoy the Califormia lifestyle with indoor and outdoor entertaining that is adjacent to the Kitchen and Family room, the EATING AREA leads out to the outdoor barbecue and patio…this is a great place to enjoy hot summer evenings.” No such thing as hot summer evenings in San Francisco, but in Marin…..

For more details, make sure to check out the pocket listing details, and get in touch with the agent.

Marin Buyer Looking For Marin Pocket Listing Gets You $62,500

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.

Or in this case, assuming an average 2.5% commission, 62,500* dollars to each agent and $2,500,000 to the seller. That ain’t chump change, no matter how you slice it.

So who has the seller for this buyer looking for a “good house in good location”? Surely, somebody must. Ken?
