San Rafael | $3.995 Million

A 2001 Victorian-style house with five bedrooms and four bathrooms, on a 0.3-acre lot

This house was built to replace a Victorian house that burned down 100 years after it was built on this lot, and the designers attempted to recreate as many Victorian-era details as possible. It is about a mile from the center of the city, putting it within a five-minute drive or a 20-minute walk of shopping, dining and the Smith Rafael Film Center, an Art Deco theater showing independent films.

Boyd Memorial Park, which has a playground and walking trails surrounded by redwoods, is less than two miles away. Driving to San Francisco or Point Reyes National Seashore takes about half an hour.

Size: 4,310 square feet

Price per square foot: $927

Indoors: The house sits behind a manicured lawn and has a covered porch surrounded by an ornate, painted-wood banister.

The double front doors open into a foyer with patterned hardwood floors. To the left is a guest room currently used as a home office; the en suite bathroom has a walk-in shower.

To the right is a living room with elaborate crown molding and a marble fireplace flanked by built-in shelving. Behind the living room is a dining room with another marble-clad fireplace and access to a kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a large center island, a pantry and a windowed breakfast room with glass doors that open to a brick patio. Through a wide doorway is a sunny family room with more glass doors that open to the patio.

A wide staircase off the foyer leads to the four bedrooms on the second floor, passing a colorful stained-glass window along the way. The primary suite, at the top of the stairs, has a large bedroom, a walk-in closet and a bathroom with two console-style sinks, a walk-in shower with glass walls and a soaking tub. Another bedroom suite is across the hall. The other two bedrooms on this level share a full bathroom.
