ECO-MODERN HOME IN the HEART of SYCAMORE PARK
Located on one of the most sought-after streets in coveted Sycamore Park, 50 Amicita was designed with clean lines, a modern aesthetic and sustainability in mind. The home is a contemporary zen retreat rarely found in the flats of Mill Valley. Mostly rebuilt in 2007, this eco-modern home prioritizes design with renewable and resource-saving features such as bamboo floors, energy efficient windows and skylights, water-saving plumbing fixtures and landscapes and blurred lines between indoors and out.
GreenPoint rated for comfortable, eco-friendly living, 50 Amicita was designed by Leigha Heydt using strong, fireproof stucco and red cedar wood siding to make a stunning visual impact. Walking through the front door you are greeted by an ideal open floor plan with well-defined spaces for casual living, dining, cooking and embracing the outdoors. The front of the house was intentionally designed with fewer windows because the developer wanted the home to feel private and tranquil from the street. However, once inside you’ll discover an abundance of natural sunlight with bright, open spaces because the back of the house is almost entirely glass to make the most of the homes southern exposure.
The front living room features a limestone floor-to-ceiling fireplace surround and etched windows that shadow a wall of bamboo to let in natural light while preserving privacy. Columns around the 8-10 person dining room create an intimate space to entertain guests that is separate from the foyer and living rooms. The chef’s kitchen features energy-star rated stainless steel appliances, Calacatta Oro marble countertops, a large center island with a gas range, countertop seating for four or more and a window backsplash that thoughtfully overlooks a wall of gorgeous greenery and mature camellias when in bloom. The adjacent family room is the perfect space for casual living with French doors that create a seemless indoor-outdoor experience.
Beyond the family room is a modern guest bathroom and a large guest bedroom with double doors that lead to the back deck. This room could easily double as a family media/game room. Also on the main level is the single car garage that like so many others in Sycamore Park is used not only as mtn and road bike storage but as a kid’s hang out/game/art room as well as a workout room for pilates.
Skylights line the stairwell and upper hallway ceilings as well as the bathrooms using energy efficient glass that let in light in but keep heat and cold out. The upper level features wall-to-wall Chilewich woven flooring, for a touch a of modern design, that’s made from recycled materials and is extremely easy to clean. The tranquil master bedroom enjoys a wall of built-in white shaker media cabinets with a built-in gas fireplace. The double doors lead to the second back deck that spans the length of the house overlooking the back yard. The master bathroom was thoughtfully designed with sleek graphite porcelain tiles and it opens to the suite’s private outdoor lounge and retreat, possibly the nicest we’ve seen in Mill Valley. Two additional bedrooms and bathroom complete the upper floor plan, ideal for kids and teens.
Tranquil landscaping plays a huge role with greenery seen from every room of the house. The outdoor deck spans the entire length of the house, making the home feel much larger. With good weather year-around, the deck can be used frequently as an extension of the house. Beyond the deck is a large lower zen garden and mini basketball court for kids to play.
50 Amicita is ideally located in one of the best locations in all of Mill Valley. Enjoy everything the flats of Mill Valley has to offer while safely sited above the flood zone. This ideal property is just moments away from award-winning schools, parks, vibrant Downtown Mill Valley, shops, restaurants, public transportation, Whole Foods, world-class hiking + biking trails and so much more. 50 Amicita is the epitome of why Sycamore/Tamalpais Park continues to be a premier neighborhood in Marin County.
