Price: $4,995,000

Built in 1961 by architect Joseph Esherick, this award-winning home in Kentfield, Marin County combines five bedrooms and five baths over 5,909 square feet of sleek, updated midcentury living nestled on a spectacular acre of land.

A wood-paneled great room with 12-foot ceilings and a fireplace flows into a formal dining room that can be closed off with accordion doors. Here, sliding glass doors open onto extensive decking outside, but first we get to an all-white eat-in kitchen, also with a fireplace, and next to that, a family room with wet bar.

The expansive master bedroom includes a library or sitting room, as well as a private balcony, while the other four generously-sized rooms feature plenty of light. A wine cellar, solar-heated pool, three-car garage, and, of course, the beautiful natural surroundings—with landscaping by Lawrence Halpin, complete this unique property. Located at 445 Woodland Road, it’s listed for $4,995,000.
