This distinguished, 1955, post and beam residence is one of four designed and built by J. W. Putnam on San Rafael’s prestigious Laguna Road. Set on a nearly 19,000 square foot lot, the steel base structure graciously spans a flowing creek bed (with fish!) that stems from nearby Johnston Lake, and leads to an intimate rear yard gently nestled among verdant and private woodlands. Shaded by California oaks, the unique mid-century post and beam Bridge House was carefully designed to take advantage of its Arroyo setting. The rectilinear geometry of the structure is a perfect counterpoint to the nearly half-acre of natural California woodlands which embrace it.
An open floor plan and sliding glass doors welcome in abundant natural light and incorporates the indoors and out. The step-down living room features a vaulted, beamed ceiling, raised hearth fireplace and has been freshly painted.
Open to the living room and adjacent to the kitchen, the formal dining room boasts wrap around floor to ceiling windows, a beamed vaulted ceiling and access to the patio and lawn. Some of the recent renovations to this residence include concrete floors throughout, aluminum-wrapped soffits with recessed lights, striking hanging lighting fixtures, a new front door, and modern hardware.
The spacious kitchen has been recently updated with silestone counter tops, stainless steel appliances and a center island. This home boasts copper plumbing, a tankless water heater, newer sliding glass doors throughout and central air conditioning.
