151 Elm Avenue
This Barbara Chambers modern farmhouse in the heart of Mill Valley exudes charm and brilliant architectural design at every turn. With soaring 10 foot ceilings, 8 foot doorways, white oak floors and all day sun this is the home you will appreciate living in every day.
Privacy abounds and upon entering the front dutch door, you are invited into an elegant sitting room with custom marble fireplace, alive with views of the front garden and giant Magnolia tree before being instantly drawn down the long hallway to the heart of the home—an open, light-filled kitchen, dining and living area with walls of windows and easy flow to the outside.
From dawn to dusk imbibe the light in a custom chef’s kitchen equipped with ample storage, professional Thermador appliances, walk-in pantry and two wine refrigerators. A thoughtful home office flows seamlessly into an elegant mudroom designed with shiplap and efficient built-in storage — a notable feature of every Barbara Chambers home.
The adjacent laundry room is spacious with high countertops and tons of storage. At the end of a long day, retreat to the Master Bedroom suite on the second floor with its vaulted ceilings, large walk-in closet, dressing area with built in vanity, complete with exquisite fabric wall coverings, a large master bathroom with walk in shower and modern clawfoot tub- all tastefully custom-designed by Cabana Home.
Back downstairs flow seamlessly outside through double french doors and unwind on a bluestone patio surrounded by a lush, green garden — that takes on new life in all white for spring and summer. Step up to a bluestone dining area and entertain family and friends under the persimmon tree and delight in the many fruit trees including fig, orange, lemon, apple and pomengrante. Children will spend hours in the playhouse, listening to the soothing natural rock fountain and playing in the native grass that makes up the lawn.
Friends will never leave the detached guesthouse complete with full bath, kitchen and banquet dining for two. You can even plant your own organic garden in the vegetable beds located just outside the kitchen. High end lighting and custom finishes complete this unpretentious and elegant Barbara Chambers home.
