75 MARGARITA DRIVE | SAN RAFAEL, CA
This magnificent two-acre gated estate is the former clubhouse of the Marin Golf and Country Club originally built in 1906, and features grand spaces for indoor and outdoor entertaining on a grand scale. Sited on a promontory that is perhaps the best location in the Country Club neighborhood, the main residence enjoys vast open spaces and views in all directions of the surrounding hills, Mt. Tam, San Francisco Bay, the Richmond Bridge, and the new span of the Bay Bridge. San Rafael’s temperate climate can be enjoyed year-round, enhanced by access to nearby marinas and hiking and outdoor activities in nearby in China Camp State Park and beyond.
The residence is surrounded by extensive gardens which can be enjoyed through the large picture widows. The open-truss living room and grand ballroom both feature large wood-burning fireplaces with ample space for sitting areas, billiard & game tables, TV, and grand piano. The spacious club bar and library provide unique places for indoor entertaining while the shaded archways and terrace in front of the home provide the same for outdoor living. The gourmet kitchen features a skylight, adjacent outdoor barbeque, and space for a harvest table.
This two-parcel compound is approached by either of two gated street entries, one with circular motor court and parking adjacent to the existing residence, and the other gated entry opening into the orchard of fruit trees, pool and pool house with full bath and kitchen/bar, BBQ area, Tennis court, and beach volleyball court. The property also features a garage and on-site parking for events.
