Property description

This is a beautiful, 20-sided shingled cottage set on more than an acre of oak trees, with views of the San Francisco Bay through the trees. The property is gated with off-street parking. This unique guest house offers one bedroom with a queen bed, and a full size sofa bed in the living room. Windows in every room look out into the oaks, where you can see deer, squirrels, and occasional rabbits. The cottage was built with the finest materials, including slate roof with copper gutters, bamboo and slate floors, granite counter tops, tumbled marble shower, and maple cabinets. A deck with glass railing encircles the entire house. There is a full kitchen with refrigerator, gas cook top, True convection oven, and dishwasher. Wireless high speed Internet and cable are included. The Bay View Cottage is just 2 miles from charming downtown San Rafael, and about the same distance to mountain biking, hiking, and picnicking at China Camp State Park.

San Rafael is a scenic 15 minute drive across the Golden Gate Bridge in beautiful Marin County, located between the bay and the Pacific Ocean. For the active visitor, Marin offers hiking, mountain and road biking, swimming, surfing, kayaking, and both fresh and salt water fishing. There are a number of yoga studios within a few miles. For the more leisure minded, Marin offers many fine restaurants, wine bars and cafes, numerous theaters, plenty of shopping in unique boutiques as well as a choice of shopping malls. Adjacent to San Rafael is San Anselmo, a quaint town renowned for its numerous antique stores. San Rafael is the home of one of renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpieces, the Marin Civic Center. It is also the 20th of the 21 California Missions. The incredible beauty and and temperate climate of San Rafael makes it a favorite location for visitors wanting easy access to both San Francisco as well as the wine regions of Napa and Sonoma. Your cottage awaits...

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I have lived in San Rafael most of my life, and have always enjoyed living here. It has great proximity to San Francisco, the ocean, as well as the wine country.

Why the Owner Chose San Rafael:
I wanted to build something unique for our visitors, and a 20-sided cottage with a cone-shaped roof set in the middle of some oak trees certainly fit the bill.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Very secluded, peaceful, relaxed environment to rest and recharge. Deer, squirrels, and the occasional rabbit are just some of the wildlife you're likely to come across during your stay.
