Can you truly be happy without a funicular in your life? This 1914 house, located in the tony town of Belvedere, provides a strong case for living the “hillivator” life.

Featuring five bedrooms, four and one half bathrooms, and 4,020 square feet, 147 Beach Road comes with a cottage-like exterior with gray-painted wood shingles. Holscher Architecture was tapped to reimagine the seaside home while keeping a smattering of period details, like the roof, corbels, and aforementioned shingles, intact.

But its interiors are all new, from the studs to the ceiling. KAGdesigns designed the revamped interiors, which now feature a neutral palette and added windows that provide even more views of the bay. Additional details include contemporary light fixtures, white oak flooring, wine room, outdoor decks, and fireplace with Calacatta marble in a herringbone design.

Of special note is, of course, the glass funicular—a common feature in southeastern Marin County, an area known for its steep terrains—that whisks the homeowner and houseguests from the hillside home to the street below.

Asking is $7,950,000.
