Listed for $39 million, a luxury mansion located in the exclusive community of Belvedere is the priciest new property on realtor.com®. According to property records, it was last purchased in 2008 for $19 million. That’s quite a markup!
For those unfamiliar with the bougie charms of Belvedere, the petite spit of land in Marin County is only 1 square mile in area and has a population of just over 2,000. It’s stacked with luxury properties, thanks to stellar views of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Mount Tamalpais. It’s an easy commute by ferry or bridge to the city, and the adjacent tony town of Tiburon serves as Belvedere’s downtown.
This massive waterfront retreat incorporates six beds, 10 baths, and 11,000 square feet on 1.2 acres, and features multiple decks, landscaped gardens, and both indoor and outdoor pools.
As the listing details helpfully note, “This magnificent view estate is truly a one-of-a-kind and the most private property on the prestigious Belvedere Island.”
