About 40 Twain Harte Ln, San Rafael, California

The sophisticated lines and modern appeal of mid-century design are on full display throughout this stunning, mostly single-level, mid-century modern masterpiece. Exuding emotion and timeless style, this one-of-a-kind gated estate at the top of Bret Harte Heights offers complete privacy, awe-inspiring views and Marin living at its very best.

40 Twain Harte Lane is ideally situated on over 1.3 sunny acres with a long private drive and gated entrance. The home was built by Edward Burgar, a name that is synonymous with quality, and expertly designed by renowned architect Edward Hagemen. With modern lines, classic mid-century details and an emphasis on flow, views and light both inside and out, the home is perfect for entertaining as well as easy day-to-day living.

The main level consists of 4 bedrooms plus an office, 3 bathrooms, a spacious eat-in kitchen, a formal dining room and a large living room with walls of glass that open out to a wonderful elevated patio with views of the pool, gardens, bay and beyond – ideal for outdoor living and dining. Both the master bedroom and the dining room open out to their own outdoor patios with amazing views of the bay and Mt. Tamalpais.

A beautiful, mid-century staircase flows easily down to a family room / cocktail lounge that opens out to the patio, pool and gardens and features classic terrazzo floors, a wood burning fireplace and a bar with ample wine storage/display. This level also includes a bathroom, changing area, hot tub and a world-class, climate-controlled wine cellar holding thousands of bottles of wine– a truly impressive cellar that must be seen to be believed.

The home is situated on 2 knoll-top parcels totaling approximately 1.3 acres, with room for a potential separate guest house or addition to the main house. A separate driveway services the second parcel, providing easy access.

Owned by the same family for more than 50 years, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own one of San Rafael’s most exciting properties. 40 Twain Harte Lane is just minutes to Bon Air Shopping Center, Marin Country Mart, Highway 101 and the Larkspur Ferry, but a world apart.
