                  House is located in an excellent neighborhood in Domingo Canyon, Novato, with rolling hills all around and lots of biking and walking trails (see the map). Also within close proximity to grocery shopping (Safeway and Paradise market) and a top restaurant, Boca Steakhouse and Boca Pizzaria (both are highly recommended). House is within walking distance to Hoog Park, which has playground structure for children. Neighborhood is quiet and very safe, with a family-friendly atmosphere. Enjoy direct access onto Domingo Canyon Open Space Ridge that provides great views of the surrounding hills, Bel Marin Keys, Petaluma River and the bay. Enjoy surrounding nature while still being centrally located in beautiful Marin County.

                  Other Activities: some of my most favorite things to do are:

                  wine tasting in Sonoma or Napa. Taking a Limo to wine tasting regions are safe options (no driving). There is good shopping in Corte Madera. Kayaking, Boating in Sausalito harbor. Going to Larkspur Ferry Station (8 miles from the house) and taking the ferry to San Francisco and going shopping, sightseeing or simply walking around downtown. Also there are ample Wildlife Viewing, Rock Climbing, Health/Beauty Spa, Hot Air Ballooning in Napa, ice skating (Santa Rosa)and more
