Tiburon Home Sets Record with $13M Sale
February 29, 2016After just two weeks on the market, a new modern home at 1860 Mountain View Drive in Tiburon set records when it closed at $13 million, according to co-listing agent Scott Woods of Pacific Union (he brokered the deal with Bill Smith). This is the largest reported sale in the last 10 years in this Marin County city. Andre Agassi's former estate changed hands for $20 million back in 2004, but that was a private transaction. At $2,888 per square foot, the house in question holds the price-per-square-foot record for any Tiburon sale, on market or off (it measures 4,500 square feet). It was originally listed at $13.5 million. Vast expanses of glass allow the home to open up to the incredible views.Woods, who lives in the neighborhood, says the price and the house itself has everyone buzzing. The house (built by Lowell and Jacquie Strauss, owners of Amalfi construction) is very high-end. "They built a custom home that an end user would build," says Woods. "It's an entirely higher level of construction, and they picked each and every finish." Architect David Kotzebue designed the home and John Merton of Studio Green created the outdoor spaces on the half-acre lot.
