Property description

This warm and inviting 2 bedroom apartment is the downstairs unit in our duplex, which is located within a 5 minute walk from downtown Fairfax or down to the new Good Earth natural foods store. The unit includes a fully equipped kitchen, 2 bedrooms (one with a Queen bed and one with a single), bathroom, dining area and living room. With gorgeous views overlooking a valley, and comfortable, beautiful furnishings, this is the perfect place to relax, make yourself at home, and enjoy all the area has to offer.

The village of Fairfax brims with down-to-earth charm. It’s a lively, small cozy town with one main intersection, lots of great places to eat (health food, Indian, Thai, Mexican, Italian, and more), a 5-venue movie theatre, several live-music clubs/bars, multiple coffee houses and bike shops, grocery stores, a weekly farmer’s market, several yoga studios, and a fantastic organic health food store.

The town is surrounded by nature and miles and miles of hiking and biking trails on and around Mt. Tamalpais (the birth place of mountain biking over 30 years ago). We are within 45 minutes of both the Pacific Coast beaches (Stinson Beach, Muir beach or Bolinas), Point Reyes National Seashore, and the Napa/Sonoma Wine Country, and a half hour from downtown San Francisco or Berkeley - a perfectly central location to enjoy the breathtaking natural beauty of the San Francisco Bay Area. We are 5-15 minutes from all the charming towns in Marin County, including Fairfax, San Anselmo, Mill Valley, Sausalito, Larkspur and San Rafael.

Whether you are visiting for business or pleasure, there is so much to enjoy and love about being here. We have the best (warmest, sunniest) weather in the area year-round, we are in close proximity to most activities or destinations that might interest you, and we are surrounded by the immense natural beauty of the nearby lakes and mountains.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We have lived in Fairfax for 13 years and love everything about it! The only thing we missed was a *warm* body of water to swim in - until we discovered the Russian River, which is an hour's driving distance away. In addition to enjoying all the local hiking, biking, beaches, lakes, restaurants, festivals and events, we feel blessed to be so proximate to the Sierras, Lake Tahoe, and Yosemite where we enjoy camping, fishing, and skiing. As much as we love traveling to other places in the world, it is always with deep gratitude and appreciation that we return home to Fairfax.
