Build Your Legacy
The Last Unicorn: King Mountain
Just nine miles from the Golden Gate Bridge, this 140+ acre ridgetop parcel, offers its next owner the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build a legacy residential compound of unimaginable privacy, beauty, and sheer size in southern, unincorporated Marin County, on a panoramic view lot immediately adjoining tens of thousands of acres of open space. The building envelope, on a ridgeline atop of King Mountain, 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. Tamalpias, as well as many of the Bay Area’s most prominent peaks, and surrounding open spaces.
The Bay Area is blessed with entrepreneurs and investors that dream of creating Tech Unicorns… and a talented, brilliant, and inspired few succeed in doing so. 128 Ridgecrest Road; better known as King Mountain, is the Bay Area’s LAST Real Estate equivalent of the Tech Unicorn that so many entrepreneurs and investors dream of creating.
Incredibly, this completely secluded ridgetop paradise is just a few minutes away from shops and restaurants, just four miles from Highway 101, and less than 20 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge. And yet, it is a million miles away from city living.
In addition to Redwood Groves, Madrones, Oaks, and other native Flora and Fauna, the land enjoys direct access to hundreds of miles of hiking and riding trails, and direct access to tens of thousands of acres of open space.
King Mountain is fully vested and entitled, with approved plans for the construction of a legacy compound in excess of 30,000 square feet, that includes a main residence, guest residence, caretaker’s home and other auxiliary buildings, as well as a large pond, access roads and pathways, vineyards, orchards, horse corrals, and elaborate water features. When complete, the King Mountain Estate will be like no other residential compound in the Bay Area.
There are thousands of view homes in the Bay Area; hundreds of view homes in prestigious neighborhoods; dozens and dozens of private view estates that are owned by the most celebrated, successful, and affluent creative minds of our time: But there is only one King Mountain.
No other estate property in the Bay Area compares. It is truly the last Unicorn.
