57 Plaza Drive, Mill Valley


“Courtyard House” (57 Plaza Mill Valley)


3.5 BA

1/4 Acre completely flat, extremely sunny, fully landscaped and fenced in yard. 

Mt. Tam Views

Close to HWY 101, Downtown Mill Valley, Mill Valley Middle School and Tam High.

Walking distance to award winning Edna Maguire Elementary School.


Architect's Description:


This site is a flat long rectangle in Mill Valley, with neighboring houses on all 3 sides. There is a view of Mt. Tamalpais to the northwest that can be captured from both the first and second floor. 


The Mt. Tam view is perfectly framed from the primary suite's large floor to ceiling window.


Since flat and sunny lots are highly desirable, we wanted to maximize not only the large front yard and gated drive,  but also form an inner, more private courtyard, which would be an ideal site for an in-ground pool. 


Mediterranean plantings including olive trees and wood siding enhances the natural setting.  Lush pittosporum bushes line the western side of the property and will grow approximately 2 ft. a year, and if cared for properly will create up to a 15 foot robust privacy hedge. The kitchen/dining room mediates between the two outdoor spaces. The upper level is conceived as either a primary suite or 2 children’s bedrooms with a luxurious bath with floor to ceiling tile. 


The property also features a large two car garage with a schweiss hydraulic door, perfect for storing vehicles or use as an indoor/outdoor gym. 


The form of the house is undeniably modern with large almost 11ft high Fleetwood glass panel doors in the common areas and primary suite bringing the outdoor spaces inside. A large Pablo design pendant greets you upon entry and leads you to eleven foot high ceilings in the Kitchen and dining room with floor to ceiling custom white oak cabinetry with Quartzite countertops and backsplash, large 9 foot central island open to the dining room.


Thermador appliances throughout and Dowsing and Reynolds gnarled black hardware for texture. Adjustable cylinder downlights by Lucifer lighting over the Island and Wick Linear Chandelier by Regina Andrew in oil rubbed bronze above the large dining table with seating for nine.
