125 Belvedere Avenue

On the market for $24 million in 2010, the ‘Tuscan Villa’ across the bay at 125 Belvedere Avenue on Belvedere Island has sold for $13 million having been re-listed for $15.9 million earlier this year.

Designed by Andrew Skurman and re-built in 2007, a funicular delivers residents and guests down the hill from the villa’s garage and guest quarters to the 5,000-square-foot home below.

Or residents can arrive by way of the private dock and boathouse, “living like Clooney, without the ‘hassle’ of jetting to Italy” as we wrote before.

    “living like Clooney, without the ‘hassle’ of jetting to Italy”. That’s classic phrase!

    How in the world did they get permits to build on the tidal sandy shore? That is amazing permit work! You sure wouldn’t see anything new like that along the coast. BCDC uses the Coastal Act but apparently doesn’t interpret it like the Coastal Commission 🙂

    I wonder what the flood insurance costs?

      The property is now back on the market with approved plans for a 12,000 square foot house. Asking price is $12,995,000. But doesn’t include the house!! ??
