11 Brookside Court, Novato | Your Own Private Resort
Breathtaking resort-style, cul-de-sac home in one of Novato’s premier neighborhoods |
11 Brookside Court, Novato | Your Own Private Resort.
Sited on a level, 1/2 acre parcel, this luxurious home reflects contemporary tastes in layout and design. Bed/Bath downstairs. 3-car Garage. Pool, full sport court and more. The quintessential “country in the city” entertainer’s home.
First impressions matter. With excellent street presence that includes tasteful landscape design, a deep and wide driveway for numerous guest cars, a spacious 3-car garage, and a privacy-enhancing, deep setback, 11 Brookside Court impresses from first glance.
As you make your way past the stained glass accented front door and into the formal entry, you will find wood floors, high ceilings, contemporary chandelier and recessed lighting. To the left is the formal Living Room with coved ceiling, recessed lighting on dimmer, fireplace, speakers and ample nat
ural light. Next up is the formal Dining Room with crown molding and an oversized slider to the side yard patio and barbecue area.
The Magnolia-style, renovated Kitchen is fit for a professional chef. The supremely elegant and functional design provides space to maneuver and features: a 6-burner Viking range and oven with custom hood; built-in refrigerator; built-in microwave; custom cabinets with paned glass accents; farm-style, single basin deep sink with designer faucets and hardware; pendant lighting over sink; and a spacious chef’s island with prep sink, loads of storage and cookbook shelves.
The Kitchen also features a breakfast area (large enough for a six person table) and a custom built-in cabinet set with wine rack and glass paneling. The breakfast
area also features bar seating and opens to the Family Room (Great Room configuration). There is a wall of windows looking out to the pool and beyond.
The Family Room is equipped with audio by SoundVision (speakers located throughout the home and outside), fireplace and built-in media center. There is also a Bedroom downstairs, currently used as an executive Office retreat with crown molding, extensive custom cabinetry and a built-in desk. The masterfully renovated full downstairs Bath features designer sconce lighting (on dimmer); custom
step-in shower; copper sink and exquisite hardware (matching that found in the Kitchen).
The spacious Master Suite boasts plantation shutters and a private, petite deck which looks out over the grounds (pool in the foreground, and then out beyond the Cabana to the sport court). The Master Bath is simply sublime. It features recessed lights on dimmers; marble floors; graceful stone countertops; dual vanities; an oversized tub with travertine surround and base; plantation shutters; a designer step-in shower (two shower heads — one is a shower wand) with a cut out soap dish and storage space; and architecturally intriguing cabinetry with opaque glass accent panels.
Upstairs also features two very large bedrooms with built-in desks, an additional full Bath with dual vanities, the Laundry Room and a linen closet.
The exceptionally private backyard is an entertainer’s paradise and has something for everyone. Beyond the patio outside the Family Room, as you follow the path towards the back of the property, you will find virtually all manner of resort and/or country club amenities. There is a large rectangular pool with automated cover (a wired Jandy station in the Kitchen controls pool functions remotely); separate spa; trellised Cabana with refrigerator, sink and bar; a full sport court featuring adjustable basketball hoops at either end (can also be used for tennis and/or volleyball); and an elevated viewing area with arbor at the rear of the property. In addition, you will find a barbecue station with grill and preparations area; a large enclosed garden plot; and seasonally rotating flowering trees and curated plantings. 11 Brookside Court is truly a magical and unique offering with no parallels in the marketplace.

About The Area
Brookside Estates is widely considered one of Novato’s most desirable addresses. There are only a few homes on this exclusive cul-de-sac. While the resort feel of the living and yard spaces provides the ultimate in luxury, privacy and serenity, shopping and restaurants are just minutes away, as is easy freeway access. This upscale, highly desirable neighborhood is outside of the fog belt of Southern Marin and within easy striking distance of San Francisco, Wine Country (Sonoma Valley, Russian River and Napa AVA’s), beaches (Stinson, Dillon and Bodega Bay) and the incredible outdoor opportunities that make Marin County one of the region’s most desirable locations for lovers of the outdoors.
Also located close by:
- The local elementary school (Pleasant Valley), middle school (Simaloa) and high school (San Marin) — please check with district to confirm boundaries; numerous Parks, baseball and softball fields; equestrian facilities; and virtually limitless hiking and biking trails.
- Downtown Novato’s shopping district, featuring boutique shopping experiences, services, and restaurants serving all manner of worldly fare.
