Property Description

This legacy waterfront estate located on the shores of Paradise Cove offers a-once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live the good life in Tiburon. A pioneering dream of its day circa 1936, the home was expanded upon in 1954 with an addition designed by award-winning Yugoslavian architect Theodore Bernardi, Dean of the American Institute of Architecture at U.C. Berkeley. Bernardi's timeless design increased the structure to include approx. 5,476 sq. ft. of living space, 8 bedrooms, and 5 and 1-half bathrooms. The iconic estate, located at 3900 Paradise Drive, has hit the market for the first time in its history.Located on approx. 9.7 acres, the parklike grounds offer the utmost privacy & include a pool, sports court, a bay view level lawn, sandy beach, waterfront sun lounge deck, & a boat way. The home is approached via a long, gated drive which gracefully curves down to a large motor court, where the home commands attention in its stature & prime positioning along the waterfront. The home has two levels featuring grand-scale living, entertaining & dining areas, all enjoying unobstructed waterfront views & vistas of the Berkeley Hills. Additional highlights include a detached 3-car garage, craftsman's workshop, ample storage, an upper & lower stable, garden areas and a cellar.
