$1,495,000 | 706 Spring Street, Sausalito , CA 94965

Welcome to 706 Spring Street! You are in for a treat. This property is a harmonious blend of vintage charm and architectural creativity that will captivate you from the moment you step inside. For 42 years, it was the beloved home of the renowned architect Kirk Hillman, best known for designing the prestigious Meadowood Resort in St. Helena, luxurious homes on the shores of Lake Tahoe, and iconic residences in Sausalito. Mr. Hillman took great pride in this home, featured in several publications such as House Beautiful in the 80s. The house features stunning Bay views, soaring wood ceilings, Redwood walls, high-end custom stained glass, custom interior doors, expansive picture windows, and unique accents throughout. The balcony off the primary bedroom is the perfect retreat to unwind and soak up the sparkling Bay. Two bedrooms on the main level plus an open loft with skylight views boasts a cool loungy vibe with space for an office and bonus room currently used as a bedroom.  The property also includes a large unfinished basement with possible ADU potential to explore. Recent updates include refinished wood floors, new carpet in the loft area, freshly painted interior and exterior, new light fixtures, an updated bathroom, and more. Despite some deferred maintenance to be addressed it’s worth the investment as this house can not be duplicated.

Trustee Notes & List of Improvements:

My name is Talitha Hillman, I am the successor trustee of this property. This home belonged to my father for 42 years before he passed away in 2016. This was my beloved childhood home, and I occupied it until around 1996 when I was 24 years old. During my father's ownership of the house, he took great pride in and good care of this home. My father, Kirk Hillman, a high-end residential architect, was known most widely for designing the original Meadowood Resort in Saint Helena, luxury homes on the shores of Lake Tahoe, and unique residences here in Sausalito including “Lighthouse 1“ and “Lighthouse 2” on the southernmost tip of the Sausalito waterfront. My father did the original remodel on this home in the 1970’s (which included adding the loft and living room seating alcove) and made various upgrades and improvements throughout the years thereafter. All the stained glass in the home was designed and created by my uncle, Bill Hillman, owner of Mansion Glass in Olympia Washington.

 I was appointed Trustee in January 2024 and have spent the past 3 months restoring the home.
