Estate of the Month

Exquisite French Chateau
18 Morning Sun Avenue
Mill Valley
Bedrooms: 4 | Baths: 4 | Sq. Ft.: 4,400
Neighborhood: Homestead Valley
Asking Price: $5,100,000
Live like French royalty in this elegant, authentic and sophisticated Parisian chateau equipped with modern day conveniences for luxury living in the ultimate romantic setting. Situated on a fully fenced, private ½-acre* sunny lot behind a massive wrought iron gate, the spectacular grounds and tranquil garden vistas of 18 Morning Sun take inspiration from the Palais de Tuleries. This exquisite estate pays homage to the architecture and design of French Neoclassicism at its finest and is the perfect backdrop for showcasing antiques or beautifully blending the old world with the new!

Largely one-level living, but not too large, the flexible floor plan of 18 Morning Sun can most assuredly accommodate entertaining on a grand scale but also feel so intimate one never wishes to leave. From the wood paneled walls of the library imported from a French King's Receiving Room and 17th century stone fireplace mantels to the 24K gold-plated bathroom and hardware fixtures, no detail was spared in creating this magnificent property to evoke the feeling of an 18th century Parisian chateau. A wet bar and a home office hide behind the wood paneled walls of the parquet-floored library.

The seamless indoor-outdoor flow from nearly every room provides access to the multiple lush, level lawn areas, garden paths, seating areas and sculpted gardens. Dual French doors off the expansive living room fill the room with light and open onto a gorgeous stone terrace overlooking the beautiful grounds. Enjoy a swim in the heated outdoor pool accompanied by music piped through the outdoor speakers beneath the watchful gaze of a statue of Demeter.
