Located on a large and sunny lot, 216 Ethel is arguably Mill Valley's most anticipated residence of 2021. This thoughtfully-designed modern masterpiece features an open floorplan with soaring 10’ ceilings. Dramatic contemporary lines and resawn clear sedar siding immediately captivate the senses. Gorgeous Boen white oak wide-plank floors and architectural light fixtures by Juniper Lighting add warmth and a feeling of retreat at every turn. Floor to ceiling windows flood the house with natural light and invite in the wide-open views of Mt Tam, downtown and the ridge beyond. Fabulous Fleetwood sliding doors create easy indoor/outdoor flow as they open wide on three sides of the home to multiple hang out spots. The front outdoor entertaining area features an Elementi firepit table and leads out to a level yard with artificial lawn. The rear patio has a custom built-in barbeque and dining area – glorious board form concrete planters feature polished black river rock and lush up-lit landscaping. The home elevator from the garage to the upper two floors adds convenience and elegance.
Sleek custom cabinetry by Signature Millworks with smooth touch latches and concrete-based countertops give the kitchen an immaculate vibe. Thermador appliance suite with connectivity and convenience at every nook and cranny. An EcoSmart Bio Ethanol fireplace is flanked by custom built-in cabinetry in the living area. The dining area boasts two large walls of glass and opens to both rear and front patios. The Accessory Dwelling Unit with it’s own separate entrance is flexible space, making a perfect media room, guest suite or rental.
There are four bedrooms located together up the museum-like floating oak staircase to the second floor. Light streams in from the enormous windows and skylights throughout. The family room is located here as well as a fully outfitted laundry room. The owner’s suite features a sumptuous bathroom with custom millwork and plumbing fixtures by Watermark & Phylrich. 8’ Fleetwood doors open to the private rear patio and the bedroom area opens to a floating Ipe deck to enjoy the views. The front guest suite with private bath opens to its own floating Ipe deck and would make a wonderful home office or peloton-inspired workout room. All of the bathrooms feature custom cabinetry and imported Italian tile.
