Property description

"The Nest" is a two-story cottage located on our property, it is not our primary residence. Nestled in the redwoods at the base of Mt. Tamalpais on a winding street with neighbors close by, it is a one-half mile easy walk to the center of town. Our shaded street is quiet, although active with bikers, hikers, and people walking their dogs or pushing strollers, since it is a natural destination for enjoying the beauty of Cascade Canyon. Hiking paths are close by, as is a stream that runs to a nearby wooded park set with benches and picnic tables.

Mill Valley offers easy access to San Francisco, across the Golden Gate Bridge, either by car or bus. The public transit stops in Mill Valley, at the center of town. The the heart of The Wine Country is north of Mill Valley about an hour away, where rolling hills covered in vineyards await. The Pacific Ocean is due west making Muir Beach and Stinson Beach delightful places to walk to see the sunset. Both are short drives from "The Nest" and can even be reached via The Dipsea Trail which is a long, vigorous hike from our doorstep!

Mill Valley also has many amenities for dining, entertainment, film, live performance, shopping, in and around the center plaza. We have a world famous Mill Valley Film Festival, Wine and Food Tasting event, and Fall Arts Festival. It has a history of attracting many well-known artists, writers, actors, musicians, and entrepreneurs, and we hope you as well.

Truly Mill Valley offers the pleasures of a beautiful setting, great sights near and far, and an artistic and cultural life unusual for a small town!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: Larry and I are a retired couple who have lived in Mill Valley for 25 years. Larry formerly a physician (ENT) and publisher of patient education materials (Krames Communications) enjoys painting and sculpting in his studio. I was a graphic designer and currently enjoy hiking and the outdoors. Larry's children are grown: Ben is a musician and producer, and Tamar is a teacher, married and expecting her first child. The children are out of the house, but our house is still home to many animals: one dog, one cat, five birds and one very lively bunny. We look forward to meeting fellow travelers and those who enjoy exploring new areas! Stephanie

Why the Owner Chose Mill Valley:
"The Nest" is a wonderful feature of our home in Mill Valley because for many years both family and friends have been able to use it for visiting us while at the same time having privacy. Of course, they have enjoyed the Marin County location and access to all the area has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Easy walk to town, transportation, entertainment, shopping; Access to San Francisco and recreational areas and the beach; really enjoy long morning walk on the nearby trails with a friend and our dog, then a latte and croissant at The Depot Cafe and Bookstore in town.
