Squint from afar and you can make out Mrs. Danvers goading the second Mrs. de Winter from the top-floor window. (Yes, yes, Rebecca’s Manderley was practically a castle, but go with it.) That’s how alluring, noir-ish, and imaginative this circa-1930 home in Belvedere is.

Featuring two beds, three baths, and 1,962 square feet, 258 Bayview Avenue is a treat for anyone who adores a throwback home. Perched on the hill of Belvedere Island, this home comes with wood accents galore (beams, paneling, flooring, built-ins, archways, and more), stone fireplace, The kitchen maintains its original integrity, via period cabinetry and brick wall, while meshing with contemporary touches, like a new stove and a see-through fridge.

The wallpaper in the master bed is a delight. The stained glass window in the bathroom charming. And the glass funicular, which traverses up and down the hillside, provides a sigh of relief for anyone who doesn’t want to do much hiking. Overall, a stunning and original piece of property.

Asking is $1,995,000.
