Muir Beach house description

This house was a family home for over 10 years and was recently totally renovated. The property is perfectly nestled above Muir Beach with extensive beach frontage. The owners who are landscape architects designed extensive gardens that were featured in the book 'Gardens by the Sea' by Barbara Seagal, an English author; and featured in Garden Design as well. The house features wrap around decks that connect all the rooms to the outdoor, the gardens, and the ocean. All 4 bedrooms have ocean views. An extra feature of this property is a private studio on the hill which can be leased at the same time for an additional cost.

Other amenities include a BBQ on the deck, a deep jacuzzi tub, and a wonderful garden where you can enjoy the day with a great number of friends and guests.

                  Location

                  Car: Necessary

                  Muir Beach is located only 20 minutes from San Francisco which makes it a perfect location for year round residents. The community has a newly remodeled community center which is rented for weddings, parties, and other celebrations. We are located close to the Zen Center, Golden Gate National Recreation Center, Stinson Beach, and the famous Dipsea Trail from Mill Valley to Stinson beach.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1990

                  About the owner: We bought the property in 1990 and lived at the beach full time for 10 years. We recently remodeled the entire house to use it again as our vacation property and to feature as a VRBO. We are landscape architects and have won many awards for our work both nationally and internationally. David is a California native with a strong sensibility for the environment and conservation and Isis is a Brazilian native. We have lived in the US, Europe, and South America and have a strong international sensibility and design sense which is reflected in our house.

                  Why the Owner Chose Muir Beach:
                  We bought this property from David's parents because of its location, the proximity to San Francisco for our work and all of the amenities the coast offers. As life long environmentalists and ocean enthusiasts there was no better place to live than facing the Pacific Ocean. We also wanted to keep this property in the family and have every intention of continuing the tradition with our children.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Flat ground in front of the house: all of the level areas were created by David and me to derive the greatest enjoyment of the property.Kids can play ball and other games on the lawn, we hosted fabulous Easter Egg hunts and birthday parties with more than 50 people enjoying the property and never feeling crowded.
