Property description

Every room of this 3 bedroom home on San Francisco Bay has gorgeous views of the bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, or restful patios. Crunch across the gravel driveway and enter a sunny sheltered area in back of the house, enclosed by a warm stone patio. Lush plantings invite you to come in the Dutch kitchen door, which is painted the color of favorite geraniums. Or, if you follow the stone path around to the front entry, you will come upon the spectacular San Francisco Bay views framed by gracefully branching trees. From the front windows you can watch the changes to the beautiful town of Sausalito and the Golden Gate Bridge across the water, as sailboats traverse the waterfront and the sun makes graceful changes all day.

The quaint village of Tiburon is a quick drive or a 20 minute stroll on the bayside bike path. From there, take the ferry to San Francisco (17 minutes) or Angel Island, or for a sunset cruise around the bay.

Visit the historic towns nearby to shop, play, or eat at famous restaurants, or just stay at Bella Vista all day to relax. Bella Vista is within a short drive to five great beaches (5-30 minutes), the Napa-Sonoma wine country (30 minutes), and the City, (15-20 minutes). Mill Valley, Sausalito, and 2 large shopping centers are about 10 minutes away. Mt. Tamalpais, the birthplace of the mountain bike, is next to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, about 20 minutes away.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

About: Earl and Arthulene Linman built this house, Bella Vista, in 1950 and their daughter and son-in-law inherited it in 2007. We began renovation in 2008 and finished in 2009. Meredith grew up here and has always loved the house and the community. We think you will, too.

Why Tiburon:
The unique climate of the area around Bella Vista is warmer than San Francisco and Sausalito, but with views of the fog that may roll over the Sausalito hills to the bay. Year-round, the climate is more comfortable than most other Bay Area communities.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The views from Bella Vista are world-class. We come here to relax and we can leave our stresses behind. We love to hike on the hills behind the house and Mount Tam, and walk on the bike path in front of the house. We love to beachcomb on the shore across the street, go to the beach on Paradise Drive or Fort Chronkite, or go to the city for a faster pace. We love it here!
