San Francisco, CA – July 13, 2020 – The grand historic residence located at 428 Golden Gate Avenue in Belvedere has just been listed by Mark Machado and Erinn Millar from the Marin County office of Corcoran Global Living. This home is on the National Register of Historic Places in Marin County and was the first home to be built at the top of Belvedere Island.

Designed by Willis Polk, the Mission Revival home was commissioned in 1893 by Valentine Rey, Esq., and has since been fully renovated. Rey was the original owner of the Belvedere Land Company whose ownership is still maintained by his heirs, although its day-to-day operations are now handled by a local property management firm.

The four bedroom, 3.5 bath property is situated on Belvedere’s most desirable location at the tip of the island and at the end of Golden Gate Avenue. Enjoying awe-inspiring vistas of the lagoon and hills of Tiburon on one side and the Bay and San Francisco skyline on the other, the multi-storied home is accented by a pergola-covered entry and lush landscaping.

“This home really must be seen in order to appreciate all it has to offer,” commented Machado. “It is truly is a masterpiece of design, landscape and geographic location.”

The home’s historical significance, prime location, stunning views and remarkable architecture present a uniquely elegant residence. The core of the home is the central light well, creating an almost magical ambience. The dramatic interior space shares a bond with the outdoors and fosters a distinctive blend of indoor and outdoor living.

Belvedere is approximately one square mile in size and offers its residents a serene departure from urban life. While the island is without a downtown, shopping, dining and entertainment are available nearby in picturesque Tiburon.

“It’s always an honor to represent a prominent and storied property like this one in one of the most exclusive enclaves in Marin County. It’s part of the fabric of our community’s rich history,” commented Michael Mahon, CEO and Founder of Corcoran Global Living. “Mark and Erinn exemplify the tailored service and sophisticated marketing that Corcoran Global Living is widely recognized for in the Bay Area and across all the luxury markets we serve.”

The home is listed for $3.71 million. Machado may be reached at or 415.298.7027. Millar is available at or 415.328.4143.
