The Chateau Marmont in Belvedere!
Situated on prestigious Beach Road, this is the most private of the three celebrated "Heidelberg Homes" on Belvedere Island. The main residence is an architecturally significant, brick and stone cottage featuring three bedrooms and two and a half baths. Situated proudly among lush, landscaped gardens on an exclusive waterfront lot. There is a separate studio/ guest house with its’ own private bath and bay views. Make your way down to your private dock. Along the way, there are multiple water-view decks, stunning garden areas and of course private beach access. This retreat like property offers fabulous views of Tiburon, Corinthian Island, Angel Island, and San Francisco Bay Bridge views.
Architecturally unique, the interior features rough-hewn beams, hand plastered walls, a vaulted dining room ceiling and a Cotswold inspired kitchen. The living room is centered around a massive copper-hooded gas fireplace.
The upstairs suite consists of two bedrooms and a full bath. The bay-facing bedroom has stunning French doors that open to the views. Extend the striped, canvas exterior awning and listen to the waves roll against the beach. You’ll think you’re in Capri. This room features a gas fireplace and walk-in closets. The garden bedroom also has French doors that open to a Juliet balcony showcasing the maturely landscaped hillside.
The downstairs suite features a bedroom complete with a sitting area, a full bath, laundry room, and cedar lined storage room. From this level, open the doors to the garden and head right down to the dock.

Magnificent homes perched on hillsides with commanding views of San Francisco Bay define Belvedere, one of Marin County and the Bay Area’s most desirable communities. With waterfront vistas that rival the Côte d'Azur (and prices to match), Belvedere is one of Marin's most exclusive enclaves.
Waterfront activities are the reason many people move to Belvedere. Located on two former islands now filled in with causeways and separated by a private lagoon popular with kayakers, Belvedere is all about water. The San Francisco Yacht Club calls the city home.
There’s no disputing that Belvedere is pricey. The lowest-priced homes and fixer-uppers start well north of a million dollars. Homes in the upper echelons fetch tens of millions of dollars.
