The iconic Mill Valley estate known as “Eagle Cliff” was sold last month by Bernard Link of Alain Pinel Realtors Mill Valley, and yielded the highest historic price per square foot for any luxury single-family residential home sale in Mill Valley. Sold for $5,200,000, the property obtained roughly $1,260 per square foot. A renovated 120 year old hunting lodge, 7 Heuters Lane is a classic marriage of Mill Valley history and modern luxury. The estate is a re-imagined landmark as well-known for its unique design as its stunning hillside vistas.
Built in 1895 as a hunting lodge for iconic San Francisco industrialist, Ernest L. Heuter, Eagle Cliff caries an intriguing history and unique character. After its construction, the estate quickly became an architectural showpiece due to its authentic woodcarving and craftsmanship, tower, cathedral ceilings, and wrap-around balconies.
Previous owners, Five Mile Partners, spent the past two years carefully designing and re-constructing Eagle Cliff to meet the needs of today’s homeowner while respecting and retaining many of the unique characteristics of the original structure. Extensively rebuilt from the foundation up, the now-complete 4,000+/- square foot home features a modern barn-style feel with the same large, open great room of its past, 16 foot kitchen ceilings, and a wall of folding doors that open to an expansive deck and lawn area. There are 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths in the main house, with a free standing guest house. A private pathway winds past redwoods and through the .5+ acre parcel to provide an easy walking route to downtown Mill Valley.
