Home of the Week: New Life for a Landmark Property in Beautiful Sausalito
The property at 190 Harrison Ave. holds a special place in the heart and history of Sausalito.
In the first half of the last century it was home to St. Mary Star of the Sea church, and when a new church opened across the street in 1959, the building became a private home.
Now the home has undergone a second transformation after a stunning and architecturally significant renovation earlier this year by Marsh and Clark Design and John Lum Architecture.
The result is nearly 7,300 square feet of dramatic, open living space plus 1,500 square feet of spectacular terraces offering unmatched views of Sausalito and San Francisco Bay.
Two turrets remain from the original church, now an office and a sitting room, separated by a two-story master wing with soaring ceilings and massive wooden beams.
The upper living room offers a warm reception to guests and can accommodate large gatherings.
The main level features an impressive chef’s kitchen with custom cabinetry, Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, Miele dishwasher, and Wolf range.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a spacious dining room and glass-fronted wine room. The living room is nearby, as well as a library with built-in bookcases and the private, two-story master suite.
