The ideal of Beauty is simplicity and tranquility
Smell the Sea and feel the sky. Let your soul and spirit fly.
If you read no further than these two quotes, you will have already captured the poetic, philosophical, and whimsical essence and spirit of 60 Platt Avenue…
But, of course, there is more.
60 Platt Avenue represents the very best of Sausalito.
What does that evoke in you?
A Gateway to Marin, and its iconic outdoor lifestyle? An artist’s refuge? A sailor’s paradise? The first town along San Francisco’s northern border; with quicker access to the Presidio and the Financial District than many of the City’s finest neighborhoods? A “bucket list” travel destination for visitors from around the world: Yet also a quaint and quiet village, with a “locals’ Main Street” (Caledonia), off Bridgeway, that is a foodies and shoppers delight? Sausalito is all these things; and more.
For many Sausalito residents, it’s all about the tranquility and the nurturing sense of place; the breathtaking beauty of Bay and Mount Tam views; the communion with nature from one’s own gardens, as well as the direct access to the tens of thousands of acres of Marin’s spectacular Parklands and Open Spaces; and also the direct access to the best of San Francisco, just a short drive, bike ride, or picturesque ferryboat passage from your front door.
For the best of Sausalito, the modernist home at 60 Platt Avenue offers unobstructed panoramic views of Richardson Bay, and the Tiburon peninsula (to the east and south), sweeping north, all the way to Mount Tamalpais, and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. To compliment the breathtaking views, the sun-drenched 1/3-acre ridgeline double lot (much of it flat and level) enjoys an abundance of light and privacy, verdant lawns and gardens, and a degree of privacy rarely found in hillside communities.
The clean modern aesthetic of the home maximizes the views from every sightline, while also expanding the sense of light and space by making the large, level, lush lawns and gardens an extension of the public rooms of this peaceful sanctuary.
It is the combination of all these rare and priceless qualities that make 60 Platt Avenue one of Sausalito’s most coveted properties.
No poetry, narrative, or digital images can convey the sense of peace and tranquility that the property exudes.
