Mill Valley house description

Our home was extensively remodeled in 2005 and has all the modern amenities. It is located in the Strawberry area of Mill Valley, very close to Tiburon. You can drive to San Francisco in 10 minutes, or take the Tiburon or Larkspur Ferry to San Francisco, which is a 20 minute ride across the bay. Muir Woods, Stinson Beach, Pt. Reyes, Napa, Sonoma, Mount Tamalpais are all minutes away. Carmel, Monterey, and Lake Tahoe are a 3 hour drive away.

The home has 5 bedrooms: 1 king bed, 1 queen, a bunk bed (with queen bed on the bottom bunk), and two single beds.

The kitchen has all top-of-the-line appliances: Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine fridge, Wolf stove, warming drawer, 42' HD flat screen TV, etc. Counters are all granite/marble. It is fully equipped with high-end pots and pans and all sorts of cooking gadgets.

The upstairs playroom also has a 50' HD flat screen TV with DVD, Comcast cable, and Apple TV. The entire house has high speed Wi-Fi.

The yard is well landscaped and comes with Green Egg BBQ and outdoor dining table. The rear pathway doubles as a bocce ball court. The house is also serviced by roof mounted solar panels.

Unlike other five-bedroom homes in Mill Valley which can be 15 minutes from the freeway, our home's location is ideal for getting to and from San Francisco & the wine country. You can be in San Francisco in about 12 minutes and in the Sonoma/Napa Valley wine country in less than 30 minutes. In addition, you are minutes away from Mill Valley's incredible hiking trails such as the Dipsea Trail.

In fact, you can bike from our house along the Blackie's Pasture bike path all the way to the Tibruon Ferry Terminal (3.5 miles), which has 12 trips daily to San Francisco. You can take your bikes on the ferry, which is a 20 minute ride to San Francisco.

The more adventurous visitors can ride your bikes from San Francisco, accross the Golden Gate Bridge, to our house (14 miles from San Francisco Ferry Building)

Mill Valley was just named one of the 20 best small towns in America by Smithsonian Magazine!

We are hoping to rent out our home during July-September 2013.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1994

                  About the owner: I grew up in Mill Valley and now live here with my wife and four kids. I wouldn't consider living anywhere else.

                  Why the Owner Chose Mill Valley:
                  * Entire house was recently remodeled. * Very easy access to San Francisco, wine country, etc. * Very close to grocery market & retail shops. * Private, quiet, and secluded. Since this is our home, we prefer to rent to groups of 8 or less. Prior to sending you a rental contract, we would like to touch base with you on the phone so that we can find a bit more about your group and your visit, etc. Since I grew up in the area, I could offer you helpful suggestions about activities, restaurants, etc.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Unlike many homes in the area that are incovenienetly far from town, this home just up the road from the Strawberry Village Shopping Center which is home to Antica Pizza, Starbucks, Thep Laila Thai Food, Pasta Pomordoro, Safeway, Woody's Frozen Yogurt, and 50 retail tenants. At the same time the house is perfectly secluded, private and quiet.
