California Dreamin’

By Linda Tancs

In the ultra luxe enclave of Belvedere Island, California, a one-square-mile suburb of San Francisco, stately homes command spectacular views of San Francisco, Angel Island, the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito, and Mt. Tamalpais.  One stunner is Locksley Hall, a 10,000-square-foot house that sits at the tip of Belvedere Island.  On offer for a mere $65 million in 2005, its wraparound veranda with Corinthian columns affords a 360-degree view of the above-named sights.  Belvedere is derived from the Italian expression for “beautiful view.”  Yes, indeed.
