Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: French familly of 5 and a cat. We have lived in New York and Boston for a number of years and have settled in beautiful Bay Area two years ago.

Why the Owner Chose San Rafael:
This house is our primary residence. conveniently located in the heart of green Marin County and 20 minutes away from San Francisco's Golden Gate

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Unlike San Francisco that can get foggy and chilly in Summer, we get a real summer in San Rafael. While the summer can be very hot, and while the house does not have air conditioneer, the house remains cool throughout the summer. Visitors always believe we have A/C, but we are simply lucky to have a well insulated roof that keeps the house cool even in very hot days.
