Point Reyes Station house description

Perched along the bluff overlooking the new Giacomini Wetlands restored by the Point Reyes National Seashore, Egret’s Overlook Home is a vacation rental home available for intimate gatherings of friends, family and for reunions. Expansive vistas await you from its wrap-around deck. Below is Lagunitas Creek as it merges into the Tomales Bay, restoring vital wetlands for egrets, gray herons, and osprey. Sky reflecting views complement the expansive backdrop as the westward sun drops behind the panoramic view of the Inverness Ridge.

Relax in privacy and enjoy the comfort and spaciousness of this contemporary California home. The oversized master suite has a high vaulted ceiling with a queen bed, large bathroom and private garden. The second bedroom suite has a queen bed and large attached bathroom. The guest loft has a double futon bed. The office den has wi-fi high speed cable modem internet service. Our fully equipped kitchen can serve up Thanksgiving dinner, brew fresh coffee, or warm up dinner leftovers. Come together in the central dining and living area to share a meal and create lasting memories. Southern exposure and silent radiant floor heating assure comfort all year round. Every room has large picture windows with unique thrilling views. Built level with extra wide passageways makes it handicap friendly.

After a day of hiking, kayaking, exploring, or just relaxing, return to grill fresh local Tomales Bay oysters on the barbecue and watch the sunset. Or dine nearby on local gourmet fare in nearby restaurants. Finish your perfect day stargazing beneath the cloak of the Milky Way. Located an hour's drive from San Francisco and the wine country.

“…We were blessed to have been able to spend this time in such a special place. It was magical… but more than that it was life-changing. We feel more connected than ever to the beauty of Pt Reyes and to the simple harmony of life that your home and its glorious setting helped us to find once again. Thank you again for all the spirit you put into your home and for your willingness to share it with others.”

“…We were searching for a quiet place to rest and your home was a lovely choice. We especially enjoyed the seamless way the fresh air, light and valley view filled the interior space.”

                      Year Purchased: 1992

                      About the owner: Patty bought the property in Point Reyes in 1989. She felt like the luckiest person in the world. As the town's Family Doc in Point Reyes, while working two jobs she spent late nights imagining her 'dream house'; she had never designed anything. After two years reading about design, principles of kitchen flow, Japanese gardening, and energy efficiency, she presented her plans to a local designer-builder. The home was completed in 1992. The Southwest orientation maximizes views and solar passive energy. The street side remains private with few windows. Two large bedroom suites placed at opposite wings of the home optimizes the view and privacy for all occupants. The central common area is unifying. The open kitchen can accommodate many working simultaneously. The loft is a great place to get away for a nap. As Patty's nephew uses a wheelchair, she designed the doorways and halls wide and the second bathroom is handicap friendly. The master bath indoor-outdoor design pulls you into the garden. Its wrap-around deck overlooks the wetlands facing westward towards the sunset and Inverness ridge. Most visitors spend their time there relaxing, barbecuing as the sun sets, and soaking in the spa under the expanse of the Milky Way.

                      Why the Owner Chose Point Reyes Station:
                      Point Reyes is located approximately 22 miles north of San Francisco, in West Marin. Close enough to drive out to for the day, yet remote and authentically rural. When I moved to Point Reyes in 1987 to practice Family Medicine, I loved that it had postal boxes where neighbors gathered. I still love how all you need can be found within 4 blocks.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Located on the Point Reyes Mesa across from Inverness Park. Stroll within a private neighborhood, passing a small pond, Cypress groves, and daffodils. We are located one scenic mile north beyond the town of Point Reyes. A favorite day starts with a morning cup of rich coffee and sticky morning buns from the Bovine Bakery,browsing at the Point Reyes Books independent bookstore, and catching the local farmers market in the Summer and Fall at Toby's Feedbarn. Purchase all else at the local Palace market and the Cow Girl Creamery deli replete with local cheese, oven-baked bread, and pick up some local grass fed organic meats at Sun Farms. Or prepare your lunch in our well stocked kitchen before heading out to the Point Reyes National Seashore Headquarters for a full day's hike. The Point Reyes National Seashore contains unique elements of biological and historical interest in a spectacularly scenic panorama of thunderous ocean breakers, open grasslands, bushy hillsides and forested ridges. Drive out to the Lighthouse stopping along the landscape characterized by spectacular shorelines, dairy farms and over 65,000 acres of wilderness protected by the Point Reyes National Seashore. Head home stopping for fresh mussels and oysters from local shellfish Hog Island farms to grill on the barbeque, or select from fine or casual dining options.
