King Mountain Estate, Marin County’s 140-acre ridgetop paradise, is selling at auction with No Reserve via Concierge Auctions, the largest luxury real estate auction firm in the world. Currently listed for $25 million, the property will sell, with No Reserve, to the highest bidder, between April 22–27th, via the firm’s digital marketplace, allowing buyers to bid remotely from anywhere in the world.
The incredible property, located just nine miles from the Golden Gate Bridge, is as individual as it is unique. It soars hundreds of feet above the Bay, atop of a prominent foothill just west of Mt. Tamalpais. The 140-acre ridgetop parcel was once owned by Herb Boyer; the co-founder of Genentech, and “father” of the biotech industry.
Located in Kentfield, California, the 32+ acre residential compound has 360-degree panoramic views of the city of San Francisco, the East Bay and Marin, as well as unobstructed views of the Bay, Bridges, and of course, Mt. Tamalpais, as well as many of the Bay Area’s most prominent peaks and surrounding open spaces. With vested development in place, there are boundless opportunities to build a legacy on a compound unlike any other.
Additional features include a gated entry; power, water, gas, internet, and telephone access at the base of the property; a fully fenced inner land area of approximately 32+ acres, containing all the building envelopes, and two exit fire trails; access to over 80,000 acres of public open space, with a looped hiking trail around the property’s base; five on-site water wells, one of which has been developed for construction; a vested entitlement which includes large areas for landscape and support structures for exterior areas that stretch beyond dwelling improvements, plus a large pond, access roadways, vineyards, water runnel, belvedere structure, horse corrals, pathways, and plantings; and short construction activation time frames through the Marin County Community Development Agency and Marin County Building Permit agency.
The property is the Bay Area’s last real estate equivalent of the Tech Unicorn that so many entrepreneurs and investors dream of creating.
King Mountain Estate is available for qualified private in-person tours, and virtual showings, by appointment. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will be auctioned online next month via Concierge Auctions in cooperation with acclaimed agent Steven Mavromihalis, of Compass Real Estate.
