The $47.5 million sale of Belvedere's historic and expansive Locksley Hall has shattered the ceiling for home sales in Marin, nearly doubling the previous record set in Belvedere in just 2013.

Better known locally as the Blanding House, the three-story, 9,235-square-foot home sits atop the southern peak of Belvedere Island and features sweeping 270-degree views of the San Francisco skyline and Golden Gate and Bay bridges. The buyer is reportedly Matt Cohler, a 38-year-old San Francisco-based venture capitalist and Forbes Midas-lister, according to a source with knowledge of the deal who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the confidential matter of the sale.

The Yellow Bus Challenge 2.0 discount school bus program wrapped up its first full week on Aug. 28, and officials say they are pleased overall with the impact on Tiburon Boulevard traffic at school rush hours.

"I don't think we are ready to declare victory, but the visual evidence and the ease of the passage up and down the boulevard has dramatically improved," said Tiburon Councilmember Jim Fraser, an early leader of the project that offers parents of children in the Reed Union School District a 50 percent discount on the price of school bus passes for the 2015-2016 term to motivate them to put their children on the bus.
