A beautiful, tastefully renovated 1950's ranch house with with views of our landscaped yard, adjacent Live Oak forests and the Loma Alta from every room. This is a true indoor-outdoor living home with walls of glass to let the outside beauty in, as well as outdoor dining and living areas for our languid warm months. We are located in sunny Marin, away from San Francisco's summer fog. By 9am our skies are blue and you are guaranteed 80-90 degree days to spend lounging by our pool.

San Anselmo is perfectly situated for exploring both San Francisco as well as Napa and the surrounding winelands. Both are an easy day trip form our home. If you wish to leave the car behind, we have world class mountain biking and hiking accessible right from our front door. Marin itself offers a wealth of State and National Parklands, beaches and Redwood forests to be explored. Local farms provide organic produce for superb farmers markets and restaurants.
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We are South Africans who moved to Marin in 2008, after 16 years spent in New York City. We still work like New Yorkers, but play like Californians and love our down time. We have 2 young boys.
Why the Owner Chose San Anselmo: We moved to San Anselmo in search of all the things we love about life here - fresh air, endless possibilities for outdoor pursuits, warm summers without humidity and milder winters. We feel like we are on vacation in our own home and love sitting in the hot tub under starry skies, swimming in our pool on hot days and tending our garden which produces a bounty of fresh fruit and vegetables. We chose our property for it's all day sunshine in the summer months and the sunbeams that stream in our windows during the winter months.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our property is ideally situated for exploring the beaches, farmlands and food of West Marin while still being close to San Francisco and also within reach of Napa and Sonoma. We are located in a part of San Anselmo that was developed later than most and therefore is characterized by larger properties and a feeling of being in the country, even though we are close to shops, banks and restaurants. Our house is situated on the floor of a small valley and we have tons of sun and are surrounded by open space. One can walk/ bike from the front door and be on a trail within minutes. Without too much effort one can feel a million miles from a city, but from the right hill top you can spot the San Francisco skyline - always a treat!
