This is a magical setting. Located in enchanting Downtown Larkspur with sunny views of San Francisco Bay, Mt. Tamalpais, surrounding hills and downtown Larkspur. This craftsman style 3 level home is surrounded by charming gardens and fruit trees.

There is a shaded outdoor patio area, sunny and Wisteria shaded decks and a redwood hot tub to relax and watch the stars. Perfect after a day of touring. This charming house has a stone fireplace and wood stove.

This is a great location to take advantage of all that Marin County, the San Francisco Bay Area and Napa and Sonoma Wine country has to offer. This Home is Minutes from Larkspur Ferry, which is a great way to get to San Francisco.

Larkspur, which is out of the fog belt, was a vacation destination for San Franciscans before the Golden Gate Bridge was built.

Located on a level lot 2 blocks from the main street in Larkspur which features include cafes, 4 star restaurants and entertainment.

From the wine country in the north, the city of San Francisco just to the south, and all of the great outdoor activities available in Marin and on the Bay, this is a place you'll be just as happy to hang out and enjoy all that the Bay Area offers.

Shopping, Sightseeing, Restaurants, Kayaking, Sailing, Boating, Swimming, Surfing, Windsurfing, Biking, Mountain Biking , Wildlife Viewing, Hiking, Fishing from Saulsalito, Rock Climbing, Fitness Center/Gym, Antique Shopping, Cinemas/Movie Theater s, Live Theatre/Music, Museums, Horseback Riding. Whale watching.

Our Larkspur Retreat is a rustic yet comfy 4+ LOFT bedroom house nestled in a sunny Larkspur. It's within walking distance of all the great dining spots in town like the Lark Creek Inn, Left Bank, and Larkspur Café Theater, Rulli's Café. It's also just a short hike to a scenic trail heads in Baltimore Canyon and King Mountain leading you to the hiker's paradise of Mt. Tamalpais, Mt. Tam Watershed and Muir Woods. Not only is this a hiker's paradise, but this is also the birthplace of mountain biking and all the great Marin mountain biking is right here. This slice of heaven is also just 10 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge so all of San Francisco's cultural riches are a short drive or Ferry ride away. And it's also a quick trip to many other great spots such as Stinson Beach, Point Reyes National Park, Berekely, the East Bay and the Napa Sonoma Wine Country.

          Car: Recommended

          Wine tasting in nearby Napa and Sonoma Counties. Marin itself is famous for Mountain Biking, Hot Tubs and great music(ians). Larkspur is a great spot to visit San Francisco or the Wine Country. There is a great music scene, plenty of hiking and solid top resturants. Major cities in the county include Mill Valley, Tiburon, Larkspur, Sausalito and San Rafael. Plenty of Bay activities, ferry to San Francisco and nicest weather in the area make Larkspur an ideal spot to come and stay.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1991

          About the owner: Empty Nesters.

          Why the Owner Chose Larkspur:
          This has been a family home for the last 21 years. Now that the kids are grown it just makes sense to have the home available to Bay Area visitors so that others can enjoy what we have known for all this time.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Larkspur has been a San Francisco get away since before the Golden Gate bridge was built. It is convenient to the city of San Francisco, yet without all the hassles and noise of the city life. There are some great and I mean great restaurants a short walk into town (2 blocks). The hiking trails in Marin are phenomenal and plentiful for all levels. The best weather in the bay area and lush gardens surrund you.
