Luxury Homes with Exclusive Address in Mill Valley

Marin Independent Journal

More than a thousand potential buyers have already flocked to view the luxury townhouses and estates on DeSilva Island in Mill Valley.

Buyers started looking early at the waterfront development in part because there are a fixed number of properties available.

"There will never be more than 64 addresses on DeSilva Island.," says project spokesman Jim Hollenbeck. "It is a pretty exclusive address".

Hollenbeck was referring to DeSilva's 62 townhouses and condominiums and two single estates that are perched on Strawberry Cove hill with views spanning Mount Tamalpais, the boats docked in Sausalito and the skyline of San Francisco.

"At night with the moon over the lagoon and the lights reflecting, it feels like the French Riviera," said Agustin Rosas-Maxemin, CEO of Armax International, Inc. "The energy and magic of Mount Tamalpais flows into the home and down to the water. It gives you the feeling of renewal everyday."

Rosas-Maxemin said likely buyers would be older couples and empty nesters who want to sell their homes. Seniors can choose the single-story floor plan that has an elevator for easy access.

Young Professionals who enjoy the activities offered by San Francisco just 10 minutes away but want to live in outdoor-oriented Marin County will also be drawn to the island, he expects. "Being outside the city has become a safe haven. Here people are close to San Francisco without being there," he said.

The homes were built on 11 acres that include an additional 31 acres of preserved wetlands and wildlife sanctuary.
