3 Via Paraiso W

$12,995,000 3 Via Paraiso W, Tiburon, CA 94920

Located down a private drive lined by olive trees on a quiet cul de sac, this extraordinary estate is reminiscent of a Wine Country resort, yet it is just moments from Tiburon’s charming village and minutes from San Francisco. The property sprawls across 1.25 acres of sun-drenched tableland on the flanks of the Tiburon ridge, with panoramic views of San Francisco Bay, from the Golden Gate Bridge to Mt. Tamalpais.

The stunning 8,500+/- square foot  home features five en-suite bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a chef’s kitchen, a home theatre, and a four car attached garage. Designed with indoor/outdoor living in mind, expansive terraces overlook a tennis court, a 60 foot infinity pool and spa, a cabana with separate guest quarters, and an expansive lawn.

With Tiburon’s shops, restaurants, award-winning schools, and ferries to San Francisco just minutes away, this home is perfect for families and executives alike who are looking for the ultimate retreat within minutes of one of the world’s great cities.
