Stanley Saitowitz home in Mill Valley stuns for $6.95M

New construction made of concrete, glass, and steel By Brock Keeling@BrockKeeling  Dec 5, 2019, 11:58am PST

Christmas has come early.

A new Mill Valley home conceived by master designer Stanley Saitowitz (8 Octavia, Beth Shalom Synagogue) will hit the market shortly. And you can unwrap it for a cool $6.95 million.

There’s so much to love here, where do we even begin? For starters, the board form concrete, which form the angular facade and ramrod-straight row of pillars, and Shou Sugi Ban wood siding make an excellent first impression.

The interiors are classic Saitowitz too: cool, sparse, streamlined, and thoughtful. We especially dig the strong Parasite vibes coming from the massive walls of glass with views of a verdant courtyard.

Featuring five bedrooms and four bathrooms, 185 Summit Avenue comes with two floors (bedrooms on the bottom, living spaces on top); a center courtyard with built-ins; Fleetwood sliding doors; a kitchen reminiscent of the ones at 1234 Howard; stainless steel outdoor kitchen and fire pit; imported European stone slabs in the bathrooms; and interiors made of steel, glass, timber.

According to the realtor, this marks Saitowitz’s first completed design in Mill Valley, a tidbit that will give the future owner even more bragging rights.

The listing is through Joshua Deitch and Ethan Moeller of Compass.
