Property description

Spectacular Ocean, Ridge and San Francisco views! Ideal as a creative retreat for writer or composer (there is a grand piano) or as a healing sanctuary for a recuperation of the body or soul. It is private, country elegant and inspirational.

Have breakfast overlooking an unobstructed view of the sea with San Francisco on the horizon line. Watch the moon come over the ridge and traverse your picture window. Sleep with the sound of the ocean waves and awake to the sound of birds. Cuddle with Maxie, a 12-year old beautiful cat who would like to stay with you.

With proximity to numerous State Parks, including Audubon Canyon Ranch and Point Reyes National Seashore, you will have endless opportunities to hike and bike and observe wildlife. There is a tennis court in town, a world-class arts museum, an organic market and farm (Prince Charles visited not long ago), and a vibrant music life at Smiley's Bar.

You are less than an hour from San Francisco and less than a half hour from other West Marin towns like Pt Reyes Station, Olema, Inverness, Stinson Beach and Muir Beach. Weekly housekeeper and gardener included.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

Why the Owner Chose Bolinas:
This is my home and my philosophy has been to live where I would like to be on vacation! I need to travel frequently and for long periods and so would like to make my piece of paradise available to others who can appreciate the specialness of this magical location.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is a timeless feeling here and life unfolds naturally. If I need more excitement, I drive to a nearby town or 'over the hill' to Mill Valley. I moved here after living in New York City for almost 20 years and came for the healing properties of this location- for one year that turned into 15 years!
