                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1965

                  About the owner: The property is owned by the Kent family and has been a family vacation home for more than 40 years. Five generations have spent summers in Inverness at the 1st Valley House. Many members of the family live in Berkeley, CA which is an easy one hour drive, making weekend trips convenient. We enjoy trips to the beach, hiking, picking blackberries, reading by the fireplace, and most of all being together. Many family members have or have had dogs over the years and they love romping on the beaches or sunning themselves on the large deck.

                  Why the Owner Chose Inverness:
                  Inverness has traditionally been a summer destination for University families in Berkeley. The Kent family has owned or rented summer homes in Inverness for over 100 years. We still have old diaries from family members coming to the area in the 1800's. Through hard work by many people, some in our family included, Inverness has never lost it's small town charm. The beaches remain pristine. We are literally surrounded by State Park and National Seashore. It's a beautiful and unique place.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The 1st Valley House has a tranquil and secluded feel. It is on a small creek and is surrounded by trees. At the same time, it is only a five minute walk to downtown Inverness where you have The Inverness Store, two restaurants and a coffee house. Live entertainment can often be enjoyed at these restaurants.Beaches on Tomales Bay are a five minute drive from the house and ocean beaches can be reached by car in fifteen minutes. Point Reyes Station is a 10 minute drive from the house with more shopping and great places to eat.
