Jobsite Walk: Modern Marvel In Marin

This job has been an absolute nightmare. But, it is still my favorite done with EH (ehllc.co) in terms of the modern architecture and interiors: it’s 5500 sq. ft. sits atop a private hillcrest, with panoramic views, and features like an infinity pool and beautiful wine cellar, only 15 mins from San Francisco. The hurdle has been building in an anti-development community like Ross, where a small group of extremely wealthy people do not want to be bothered with construction. I am not exactly sure how they think the mansions they live in got there?

No joke, the Town of Ross was actually sued by our neighbor, “Mrs. Powerbar” (or Cliff Bar? One of the bars…) for approving our plans. When we actually got okay to build, despite a year delay, the building requirements were extremely overkill, adding much cost. Think: a fire suppression system that connects to underground storage tanks, and has a pump hooked up to the pool to drain the pool, in addition to a fire hydrant, in case of a fire. Oh, and a huge back-up generator for the pump! Requirements like this are unheard of in the residential sector.

The good news is, we have ridden this wave of delays and costs, into an extremely booming real estate market. This comparable just sold in our neighboring Tiburon: 1860 Mountain View Dr., Tiburon . We are on the final stretch after fighting tooth and nail for the pool and cabana permit, to get this on the market and sold, before there is any sort of hint of the tech bubble bursting. Obviously, I am hoping that’s not the case, but I am sort of enamored with Christian Bale’s character in the Big Short right now. The real guy, Michael Burry says the economy is extremely unstable (New York Magazine Article).

Can’t wait to see it done, here are some pics of my walk through this week. These amazing interiors were done by Paulina Oldenbrook Interior Architecture and Design (Paulina Oldenbrook).

The infinity pool and cabana site- we are starting now with structural piers and a retaining wall system. We hope to have the entire cabana and pool built in 8 weeks, pending weather.
