Originally crafted in 1905, this turn of the century, picture perfect vintage home has been lovingly restored and extensively renovated by the current owners taking great care in preserving period details while adding modern day amenities for ease of lifestyle. Every inch of this four bedroom, two and a half bathroom home exudes a unique and warm quality, a feeling that it has been cherished for many years, a place you will yearn to call “home.”  Upon entering the rose-covered arbor and white picket fence the traditional brick pathway leads to the most welcoming front porch signaling you are somewhere very special. The formal living room with brick fireplace is the perfect introduction for what is to be revealed. Traditional moldings, expansive, double hung windows, picture rails and extensive trim detail illustrate the extraordinary craftsmanship apparent throughout. The grand and inviting country style kitchen with beam ceiling boasts butcher block counters, custom white cabinetry, center island, stainless appliances and butler’s pantry. The kitchen adjoins the dining and sitting areas with cozy fireplace and custom built-ins.

The master suite is a romantic escape with Juliette balcony, decorative fireplace, built-ins and luxurious bathroom. Located on arguably the best street in San Anselmo adjacent to the landmark Robson-Harrington Park and close to downtown, award winning schools, restaurants, shopping, transportation and so much more. 10 Raymond Avenue is truly a rare offering.
