Compared to its nearby sister cities, the elite town of Belvedere, located just across the bay, is a world away in terms of economics and attitude. The well-to-do hamlet also features some of the choicest housing stock in the Bay Area, ranging from overly ornate to muted midcentury. This 1968 specimen hovering above the bay is an ideal example of the latter.
It lands on the market for $3,795,000, listed through Tracy McLaughlin of The Agency.
Featuring five bedrooms, four and one half bathrooms, and 3,670 square feet, 85 West Shore Road comes with an open floor plan and a smattering of midcentury period details, like vaulted ceilings and exposed beams.
One of only 54 homes on the coveted West Shore Road, other highlights here include five fireplaces (two gas, three wood-burning), hardwood flooring, a boat dock, an expansive rear deck that could entertain a large party, an interior courtyard offering protection from wind and sun, and views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge.
Also of note, the windows and skylights galore used to flood the home with copious amounts of natural light. In a word, glorious.
