                  Year Purchased: 1972

                  About the owner: We are third and fourth generation Inverness vacationers.

                  Why the Owner Chose Inverness:
                  We built this house to take advantage of the beautiful views and forest and because of the proximity to the beaches on Tomales Bay.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Our house is made of wood with great expanses of glass, so wherever you are inside you can see the sky, forest or water. The high ceilings and different levels give a great sense of space.
