Fairfax house description

Beautiful inside and out! This 3-year new, sunny, garden guest house feels like a luxury vacation property -- nothing old or funky about it. It is situated on a large, sunny lot landscaped with gardens and patios to feel like a resort. The Honey Bee was designed with privacy in mind -- from both the main house and the neighbors, and has its own private patio with furniture and a bbq; like your own vacation island. Built in 2010 to code, including a fire suppression sprinkler system. The furnishings were purchased new, and the art is locally sourced. You'll love the high ceilings, fireplace, granite counters, and natural light, -- a generous 650 sq. ft. with lots of closet space. It even has it's own laundry area, as well as off-street parking. You won't want to leave.

The feedback we get is that it feels like a high-end vacation setting, both the gardens and the guest house itself. So, even if you are here on business, you can feel like you are on vacation.

Voted Best Marin Town in 2011 -- the quaint village of Fairfax is lively, with one main intersection, lots of great places to eat (health food, Indian, Thai, Mexican, Italian, and more), a 6-screen movie theater, several live-music clubs/bars, multiple coffee houses and bike shops, grocery stores, a weekly farmer’s market, several yoga studios, and a large new, upscale health food store. The town is surrounded by nature and miles of hiking and biking trails on and around Mt. 'Tam' (the birth place of mountain biking over 30 years ago).

Centrally located in sunny Marin County's best weather area, Fairfax is a destination in it's own right. And it offers easy access to the entire Bay Area -- San Francisco (by car, bus, or ferry), 'the Bay,' Mount Tamalpais State Park, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, West Marin and Point Reyes National Seashore, the Pacific Coast beaches at Stinson Beach, Muir Beach, or Bolinas, and the world-famous Napa/Sonoma Wine Country. And don't forget the other charming towns in Marin, including Sausalito, Mill Valley, San Anselmo, Larkspur and San Rafael.

                  The Bay Area has it all!!! Fairfax is a destination in its own right (with great weather), and also an excellent home base for visiting and vacationing in the Bay Area. Enjoy SF culture, natural beauty galore, the Bay and Ocean, explore Marin, and tour the Wine Country -- or stay 'home' and nap on the garden patio.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1996

                  About the owner: My husband and I love living in Fairfax. We raised 2 girls who loved growing up here. We feel so lucky to live in a place that really has it all. Our favorite toast to each other is 'Living the Good Life.'

                  Why the Owner Chose Fairfax:
                  The sunny mild weather (Fairfax was originally a community of summer homes for people from San Francisco) and walking distance to downtown Fairfax. The large, private, flat lot. The quiet neighborhood with large trees. The friendly community vibe.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Fairfax is unique. Fairfax's motto on t-shirts and bumper stickers is 'Only in Fairfax.'
