159 Tamarack Rd., San Geronimo

This peaceful Mediterranean Villa is set on over 3 acres in San Geronimo Valley. Built for entertaining years ago by the Italian Consulate as summer retreat, the villa enjoys a vibrant history. Valley Lore indicates that Al Capone spent a considerable amount of time in this home with friends and family. The current owners have owned it for 25 years and tastefully restored it to its architectural and historical beauty. They also purchased the parcel of land next to them making this one lot two legally separate parcels. A large grand room with a mountain stone fireplace and spectacular views of the valley accentuate this home’s artisanal design and bolsters this intriguing past. The home has four bedrooms and three baths, workshop, art studio, potting shed, and a separate cabin with small kitchen. There is a pool for relaxing, a large outdoor veranda, and wonderful built in outdoor barbeque. Buffered by an additional 2.5 acres of land this home is the epitome of why people move to West Marin. The privacy and peacefulness is unparalleled in a truly one of a kind retreat. Interestingly there’s an option for expansion and possible second unit or even a vineyard!
