Somehow, we don’t think Aloe Blacc will be living next door.
All told, Tim Westergren’s proposed vacation home in the woods of West Marin will sprawl across 8,297 square feet of land. If approved, the Pandora founder will enjoy a collection of 17 rooms and 14 bathrooms that traverse two main houses, with a pool house, music studio, meditation hut, and caretaker unit also part of the complex.
Westergren has already purchased the land, though West Marin residents are ardently fighting against the proposal, especially given the massive footprint, tree-cutting requirements, and water-draining bathrooms. Residents will vote on the plans in January, though given the massive property taxes, this will probably pass.
Westergren and his wife, Smita Singh, sent this note to nearby residents.
We wanted to check in, say hello and let you know how excited we are to begin the process of building our home in your lovely neck of the woods. Our program will be light on the land, and will be sustainably designed and built. We are big believers in integrating a home with its natural environment — minimizing the disturbance of both the land and the surrounding community.
