Property description

The property is totally private. It is on 14 acres which includes woods and pastures with horses. There is ample room to explore right on the grounds. The home is well used, comfortable and ideal for families with children. There are two bedrooms with Queen beds and a back bedroom with bunk beds, a single twin bed and a crib. Every room connects to the outside.

Due to the special nature and privacy of the property and surrounding hills the place has also been used for retreats, and other special occasions.

We have built a playhouse in the woods where children can play creatively and independently---inspired by the recent book The Last Child in the Woods. This book documents the need for intimate connection to nature and to independent fantasy play for children. The playhouse is surrounded by trails leading to an open meadow of five acres. There is also a suspension bridge!

There is a coop with chickens, ducks and Doc, the rabbit. Young kids can access the coop to collect eggs with parental supervision. Most children spend hours in the chicken coop. There are views of surrounding hills and the Bolinas Lagoon and access to nearby trails in open space and parkland. One mile from the town of Bolinas which has two miles of beachfront and locally caught fish in season, abundant organic produce and Niman meats. The property is also just three miles from the Audubon Canyon Ranch where one can watch seals and all kinds of bird life on Bolinas Lagoon; and 10 miles from Point Reyes Park HQ with its extensive trails, beaches and wildlife.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

About the owner: I have lived on this property for over 40 years and it is a nurturing and spiritual place for me--compeletly private and still. For people who value those two things it is ideal. We also have built a playhouse in the woods where children can play independently and creatively and there are all kinds of animals on the place. I do not keep up with the callendar--house is rented about half the time--so the best way to enquire about availability is to email me--I am very prompt.

Why the Owner Chose Bolinas:
When we saw the property we did not hesitate--it was the ideal place to raise a well as have tranquility as an important aspect of our daily lives.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Watching the lagoon for its varied wildlife, gardening, horseback riding, animal care, and sitting in the meadow enjoying a drink at the end of the day.
