Renee Wilson, the actress best known for the character Pat Lyle in Ray (2004) has placed her San Rafael home on the market for $1.7 million.
Brent Dicken designed the home and it was constructed in 1989. Its overall look and vibe were inspired by the work of renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. It is a three bedroomed, 2.5 bathroom home, on 2550 feet square. The house is one of five in an enclosed subdivision.
There are century-old oak trees, the occupant has a wonderful view of the San Pablo Bay area.
Its enchantment starts the moment you meet its custom-curved entry door. The entranceway leads to a large, well-lit living area, with a high ceiling. The living area is framed with views of the surrounding hills. Views from this home are impressive, including the one from the kitchen.
The house stands on a 0.5-acre plot, which makes it feel isolated. The house is in the middle of the old-growth forest. San Francisco is half an hour away, with good traffic, while the ferry terminal is about 10 minutes away. The new owner, assuming it goes off the market, will have a quick way of getting to the city via boat ride.
