Stinson Beach house description

Your beautiful retreat is hidden from view by a rose covered fence. The most difficult decision is where to relax first - inside the comfy and cozy house or outdoors. Each side of the Cape Cod style house offers a unique outdoor experience. The back deck gets wonderful, warm sun during the day. Two lifeguard chairs offer a view of the waves. A nice large hot tub is perfect for relaxing after a long hike, ride or surf, or for stargazing at night. The outdoor fire pit is around the corner and looks out on a small lawn surrounded by bushes and trees. The front porch has an Adirondack loveseat for enjoying the evening light on Mt. Tamalpais.

The porch door opens into the living room. The open living room, kitchen and dining area has many large windows with deck, garden, mountain and partial ocean views. The large brick fireplace is the cornerstone of the living room. The comfy, big couch is great for lounging or sleeping if needed. The kitchen area is small but well equipped with a convection oven and two dishwashers. An electric teapot, coffee grinder and a choice of French Press or drip cones are provided to make sure you can start your morning with a wonderful cup of coffee. Dine inside on comfy Maine Cottage chairs, or outside on the deck.

Sleep is heavenly in the European Sleep Works king bed. The bedroom is at the far end of the house and the sounds of the waves are the only sounds you hear. Wake to a view of the flowers and hummingbirds through the glass doors and bedroom window. Furniture in the bedroom includes a rocking chair, a table with desk lamp (which is perfect for computer work or writing), two nightstands, a dresser and a large closet for your use.

The bedroom is separated from the living area by a bonus room that features a sleeping nest perfect for a child or friend. The sleeping area has its own ceiling lights for reading, and can be closed off by a curtain for privacy. The room has two closets; one contains the washer and dryer.

The bath is small but tidy. The shower has good pressure and lots of hot water.

                      Location

                      Walk to the best beach in northern California or to the trails of Mt Tamalpais. Muir Woods is a hikeable distance. Close proximity to Pt Reyes and Olema. Easy, scenic day trips to wine country and San Francisco.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: My husband and I met at UC Berkeley many years ago. After a stint in New York, we were able to move back to San Francisco. We have a teenage son at home and another in college. We have always loved west Marin for its scenic beauty, wildlife and incredible beaches. The Stinson house has moved me closer to many of my dreams. I just completed docent training at the Martin Griffin Preserve and now have the pleasure of introducing fourth graders to the wonder of the area. I look forward to the time when I can spend more of my days paddling the lagoon, hiking the trails and doing what I can to preserve this treasure. Until then, I hope to share this truly multifaceted rejuvenating home with others.

                      Why the Owner Chose Stinson Beach:
                      We always dreamed of having a place in West Marin. I love Stinson because there is so much to do and see without having to get into a car. The town is friendly and meets all basic needs. Almost everyone of any age enjoys a day at the beach. Hiking trails are right outside the front door. And I fell in love with the house. It is bright and sunny, quiet and peaceful and the hot tub makes it better than a day at the spa. I also love Pt. Reyes Station, which has become the hub of the sustainable food movement, and which has interesting, unique shops. But it is just a beautiful 13-mile drive or bike away.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The benefits of a vacation at this home are many and varied. You can experience one or all of the four S’s – sun, surf, sleep and shall we say romance. I would also add sustenance for the spirit, opportunities for socializing and if desired, exercise and challenges for the physical self. The location of the home is wonderful, but it is also a good base for exploring the San Francisco Bay Area and wine country.
