Take yourself to a higher place -- 390 Ridge Road, Novato sits in a private, elevated location with spectacular canyon, bay, city and ridgeline views. With 4 large bedrooms, 2 baths and approximately 1962 square feet, this incredible home offers ample space inside and several flexible outdoor spaces with excellent privacy -- there is even a large lawn to play around on.
As you enter the home, you will find the kitchen to the right, but will be braced by the truly special views accentuated by the wall of windows in the family room. The sweeping, jet-liner views provide a unique vantage point. And due to the home’s fortuitous orientation to the sun, you can enjoy the views without being blasted by afternoon direct sunlight into the family room.
The kitchen is updated with all the current amenities, including farm-style sink with pendant light; marble counters; subway tile backsplash; 5-burner range; stainless appliances and modern handles and pulls. The kitchen also features a breakfast nook with adjacent French Doors to expansive front patio.
Connected to the kitchen and family room is the formal dining area which features amazing views of the valley, city, bay and oaks; wood floors; dimmer light switch and access to the rear deck. As you explore the family room further, you will find that the large fireplace surround matches the marble from the kitchen, diminutive crown mouldings, recessed lighting and, again, those glorious views.
Also upstairs are two large bedrooms, one featuring a skylight for added natural light and the other featuring a large window wall and 2 closets. Hardwood extends through both of these bedrooms. The full bathroom on this level feels modern and classy with designer fixtures, a shower/tub combo and excellent natural lighting.
Downstairs features a very large bedroom (currently used as an office, but could be a play room or media room) and another large bedroom -- both with those amazing views. Also downstairs is another full bath and the laundry.
Outside spaces include the front patio with artful oak trees which frame the peaceful sitting deck with amazing views accentuated by landscape lighting on the trees. There is also a large, fenced grassy area for play and recreation. As the home sits on nearly an acre of land with substantial separation from neighboring homes, sitting quietly can reward you with glimpses of native wildlife and a peaceful sense of calm.
Belying the feeling of being deep into nature, the home is actually located just a few minutes from downtown shopping, wine tasting, grocery stores, post office, restaurants, hospital, the local hardware store and Costco. Novato’s location as the hub of the North Bay will also delight you with its relative proximity to beaches, wine country, San Francisco, and everything else the Bay Area has to offer.
