House of the Day: Bay Views Don't Get Much Better

bay view house

When Tony Bennett left his heart in San Francisco, what he really meant to say was that he stashed it in this 10,000-square-foot home on the island of Belvedere, just across from Sausalito and north of the city.

The waterfront home, now on the market at $27.5 million, is on the Western-most promontory of Belvedere Island with the San Francisco Bay directly below it. It has unobstructed views that include Mount Tamalpais, the Golden Gate Bridge and the entire San Francisco skyline -- that are definitely worth crooning over.

House of the Day: Bay Views Don't Get Much Better

Warren Callister designed the home, which has large formal living and dining rooms, a library, five fireplaces, three level lawn areas, a three-car garage and additional parking for seven cars. There is a world-class kitchen with a granite-topped island and a walk-in pantry. There is also a wet bar in the family room and the top-floor master suite has a private-view terrace. The property includes a guest apartment.

It's a 35-minute drive to San Francisco's financial district or a mere 10 to 15 minutes if the trip were made by boat. The property doesn't have a dock.

The listing agent is Bill Bullock of Decker Bullock Sotheby's International Realty in Mill Valley, Calif.
