Nestled on a shared lane, in the most coveted Sausalito weather location, the Banana Belt, this post-modern split-level, with panoramic Bay and Mt. Tam views, multi-functional organic architecture, and mature Japanese garden and trees, has it all!  Built in 1979 by architect/owner Robert Davis for himself and his family. Featured in Better Homes and Gardens in 1981 and Sunset Magazine in 2002, for design elements that are still state of the art. This very special home has had only 3 owners! Present owners have expanded and renovated this unique home over the past 30 years, keeping the original architectural integrity - enhancing and expanding by adding a generously sized primary suite, with private deck & redwood hot tub, wood burning fireplace, skylights, walk-in closet and more. Located on a shared, private lane in the heart of town, this spacious 3 bedroom/2.5-bathroom (approximately 2500 square feet) home has an attached 2 car garage and off-street parking for 2 additional cars and abundant on street parking close by. Feel like you are on vacation year-round in this elegant treehouse, with dancing light that shines through the spectacular flora and fauna, embracing the warm wood interior. The spacious entry foyer has welcoming slate floors and opens to two guest bedrooms and full bathroom, shared by a bonus room with a wall of built-in cabinets and washer/dryer. One guest room was converted in 2010 to a beautiful home office with custom birds-eye maple 2 built-in workstations and wall of custom cabinetry/storage. The second guest bedroom also has a wall of storage/shelves and is currently used as a den. Up a few stairs to the Primary Suite (added in 1996) with spacious bathroom (skylights), large deck and built-in redwood hot tub, sitting area, wall of built-in bookshelves/cabinets, cozy wood burning fireplace, skylights (with remote controlled shade), custom walk-in closet and its own air conditioning unit! The upper, main level features an open floor plan that is architecturally stunning with sunken living room and raised stone hearth fireplace, panoramic Bay and Mt Tam views, vaulted wood beamed ceiling, Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, two dining areas and skylights. In 2005 the galley kitchen was expanded and improved with beautiful custom fir cabinetry, electric lift/dumbwaiter from garage, on demand filtered hot water and state of the art appliances.  A large view deck (with plumbed-in gas for barbecue) can be accessed directly from the kitchen or the living room. A few steps up from the dining area is a spacious loft/den/office nook with a wall of built-in custom cabinetry/media (tastefully hidden by shoji screens), powder room with sauna and large walk-in closet.
