A fully renovated and reimagined modern mansion owned by a celebrated Persian architect is now on the market in Sausalito, CA.
“If someone wanted to add a gym or an in-law suite, they can do that on the lower part of the lot,” says Zandinejad, who represents the seller, architect Ali Pedram Motiei.
“He came to America from Tehran in 2016 to pursue his passion and talent in a country that could offer him all the resources he needs to showcase his talent and his peculiar vision to bring new perspective to his design,” says Zandinejad. In Tehran, Motiei designed luxury condos and high-rise apartment buildings. This is his second residential project in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Motiei closed on the property in December 2017, and a yearlong renovation brought the 1983-built home to its current state, which Zandinejad describes as “a sophisticated, edgy modern sanctuary.”
As far as the interiors go, just about everything is new. All of the features and fixtures are high-end, including the kitchen’s Porcelanosa cabinets, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, and Caesarstone countertops.
Also folded into the new design is a glass staircase, skylights, and soaring ceilings, all aimed at opening up the space, with walls of windows maximizing natural light. A walk-in closet and master bath with a walk-in shower and free-standing soaking tub make at-home pampering easy.
Twin blue-green glass barn doors section off one of the upstairs rooms in style. Three sets of French doors off the living room lead to the redwood deck, which was expanded under the new design and offers beautiful views of the bay. A new roof and driveway means zero maintenance in the near future.
“The moment you enter the house, one can appreciate the harmonious flow that he was able to achieve through his tastefully modern design,” says Zandinejad. “The incredible view of Sausalito, Belvedere, and Tiburon is peeking through each corner of the house, through glass doors and windows.”
Another unique feature is the location, a cul-de-sac on Laurel Lane.
“A lot of the properties in Sausalito are on narrow streets. When you turn into Laurel Lane, you see the whole bay and the harbor. It’s a wide street, and there’s so much parking space,” says Zandinejad.
What kind of buyer will snap up this property?
“The house is more for a younger couple working in the high-tech industry, living the fast life in San Francisco, and really wanting to have a property in which to entertain,” he says. The “piece of cake” commute to San Francisco over the Golden Gate Bridge might also hold appeal.
“They can’t have something like this in San Francisco unless they pay $20 million,” Zandinejad says.
