                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2001

                          About the owner: We are the original owners of this house, which we built in 2001 and have used as family weekend home for our 3 children and our dog. The area is great for biking, hiking, beach activities and deep relaxation! We are happy to help you plan a great vacation at the stunning northern California coast! Please view map in Hybrid Mode.

                          Why the Owner Chose Dillon Beach:
                          Proximity to San Francisco where our jobs (art business and software) are located. Easy, traffic-free drive. Spectacular views. Beautiful beach. Classic California coastal scenery. Quiet. Property owner's association private roads. Newer home area with all underground utilities and no street lights!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Our house is just a 7 minute easy walk to the beach, so we go often, for Tidepooling, long walks with our dog, Swimming, Kayaking. We take friends hiking in the open space nearby, and Bicycling on the back roads which wind through dairy farms, Freestone (peaches!) and past bucolic countryside and ocean views. Our location is good for day trips to the Russian River, Sonoma County wine country, Bodega Bay to the north, and Tomales Bay, Marshall, and the extraordinary Point Reyes Peninsula, charming Pt. Reyes Station to the south. Throughout, there is great food, fresh produce, sustainable agriculture and locavore dining, even in Petaluma! This area is the perfect mix of green-belt agriculture and protected coastal zone-without traffic jams, loud day-trippers, or resort congestion. Watching the sunset and the ocean from the house is one of the most relaxing pastimes ever!
