Finest Home in Northern California to be auctioned at Private Sale — Proceeds to Benefit Hurricane Relief Efforts

“Villa Belvedere”, a hi-tech, “Certified Green” home, is known as the finest in Northern California. Previously listed for $45 million and located in prestigious Belvedere Island on San Francisco Bay, it is to be offered at auction with a starting bid of $25 million on December 30, 2012. Luxury home auction consultant, Guy Masters, has been engaged by the seller in cooperation with listing agent Olivia Decker of Decker Bullock Sotheby’s
International Realty to market this unparalleled property. Ms. Decker, Mr. Masters, and the owner will donate over $300,000 from sale proceeds to the buyer’s chosen charity and Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

The 15,176-square-foot (approximately), newly constructed residence features 7 bedrooms, 9+ baths, and over 5,000 square feet of waterfront terraces. Breathtaking views of The Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, Bay Bridge, Alcatraz, and Sausalito seen from nearly every room. The gated and lushly landscaped 1.14-acre lot includes a 200-foot driveway and motor court, providing parking for 15-20 cars. Amenities include a theatre, wine cellar, gym with sauna/steam rooms, elevator, 50-foot gallery with bar/catering kitchen, and pool with cabana/spa, while Smart-House technology operates home systems from an iPad on site or abroad.

Painstakingly designed and constructed over four years, this magnificent residence was the 2012 Marin Designer Showcase. “I started with the world-class site, then I worked with my design team to create a home whose luxury and style equals the world-class panoramic views created by Mother Nature,” says Jeff Paster, the owner. Ms. Decker adds, “In my 30 years of marketing luxury homes in the Bay Area, this home is truly one-of-a-kind, like a rare Picasso or Rothko, and appropriate to offer at auction to connoisseurs of luxury homes.”

The property may be previewed by appointment or by attending one of the special viewing events. Brokers protected. See Auction Terms and Conditions for details. For auction information, contact Guy Masters: 1-707-331-0525 or visit
