This extraordinary home has been completely rebuilt and re-imagined by local architect, Whitney Schrauth with SA + C Design, while maintaining and preserving the historic charm and personality of a coastal cottage. Many of the home’s finishes were recycled and repurposed during construction giving it not only a signature design but also making it an incredibly eco-friendly space. This home was created with a deep understanding of how family dynamics shape the way in which we function in a home.
The welcoming front porch immediately lets you know you have arrived somewhere special where you can take in the incredible views of Mt. Tam and vistas of the beautiful natural surroundings. The dramatic double height living room is flooded with natural light and is open to the dining area and kitchen. There is also a convenient office nook, stylish powder room and two spacious bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bathroom on this floor. The kitchen has high end appliances, a prep island and is so beautiful you just want to hang out there all day. There is a small deck that leads to an expansive backyard with lawn, outdoor dining area, play space for the kids. The outdoor area is ideal for kids to romp around and for adults to relax and entertain and take full advantage of the outdoor Marin lifestyle. Upstairs is a lavish primary suite with its own deck, tall ceilings, walk-in closet and luxurious bathroom with a stand alone soaking tub. There is an additional office space on this floor and another bedroom.
The lower level has a cozy family room for movie night, a guest bedroom and full bath, laundry, a kitchenette for long term guests or entertaining and a bonus multipurpose space. The garage has been converted into a workshop and hang out space that could also be a great home gym and there’s plenty of extra room for storage. With this central location, you can’t get much closer to all the action at Boyle Park, Park School and downtown Mill Valley, which are all just within a few blocks and the Golden Gate Bridge is just a few minutes away for commuting. 16 Carmelita has the soul and spirit of a historical coastal home with all of the modern amenities for today’s active families.
