100 Edison Ave – An Estate Property in Old Town Corte Madera
100 Edison Ave is one of the last remaining heritage properties in Old Town Corte Madera, located on 2+ serene and private acres. This is a rare opportunity to live in a charming remodeled lodge that has been in the same family for 60 years or to build your dream estate. The gently sloping, park-like property at the base of Corte Madera’s Christmas Tree Hill is laced with turn-of-the century stone walls and paths, quiet patios with views toward the bay, and mature trees.
This property is rooted in the heritage of Corte Madera, most likely split from the Pixley lands in the early 20th century, when the first house may have been built (ca. 1902). It was reimagined in the 1920’s by its owner, Dr. Robinson, and again in the 1940’s. The present owners became stewards of this magical homestead in 1960 and used it to raise their children and as a gathering place for guests from around the world.
There are very few properties in Corte Madera or Larkspur that provide this kind of serenity, lovely vistas, seasonal creek, two private driveways, and so much space to breath. It can be your own exclusive and enchanting park. This is a once-in-a -lifetime opportunity to create your dream home and your family legacy.
This idyllic spot, on the boarder of Corte Madera and Larkspur, has a remodeled main house from the 1920’s with four bedrooms and three baths, a one bedroom-one bath cottage, and a studio with bath, both from the 1940’s.
The main house welcomes you into a two-story great room with a massive stone fireplace, a wall of windows to the view and a wide deck for leisurely outdoor hours. Period features include built-in cabinets and two charming open lofts at each end of the soaring ceiling, ready to welcome a study for quiet contemplation or playing children.
Adjacent to the great room are a remodeled kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops and a view of the terraced gardens. Completing the main floor are a formal dining room, two bedrooms a shared full bath finished with colorful period tilework, and a separate main bedroom suite with attached full remodeled bath. Convenient stairs from the great room lead to a lower level with a large bedroom and bath with a separate entrance plus a large laundry and storage room.
