Muir Beach house description

Overlooking the Pacific , the Marin Headlands, and San Francisco in the distance, this mid-century gem of a house has been lovingly restored and offers a quiet retreat like space to relax and unwind. Facing the Pacific, with full sun, skylights, organic queen bed, organic Coyuchi linens, and a beautiful, spacious, beach inspired bath. You will be a short walk from the beach and hiking trails, close to Muir Woods, Green Gulch Zen Center and Farm, and the Pelican Inn Restaurant and Pub. Dazzling your senses, you will find yourself relaxing under the stars or enjoying the sun on one of the two spacious decks.
The open plan mid-century design has a “Dwell Magazine” feel. The kitchen is nicely appointed; there is an organic garden, off street parking, wi fi, Bose wave radio, and t.v. Located in the heart of the beautiful Golden Gate National Recreation Area, you will feel you are a million miles away from everything. Sleep to the sound of waves and enjoy one of Marin County’s best kept secrets. We are always here to help make your stay more enjoyable.

San Francisco is a world-class city with incredible restaurants, entertainment, scenery and endless activities.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1992

                      About the owner: I love Muir Beach and am in awe of it's beauty and all it has to offer. I love hiking and running on the trails, wildflower walks, mountain and road biking around Marin. I have worked hard to help keep this area wild and beautiful.

                      Why the Owner Chose Muir Beach:
                      I absolutely love mid-century modern design and feel so fortunate to have a house of that era and style. And to be nestled into one of the most beautiful spots on the California coast, surrounded by parkland yet close to lovely towns and San Francisco. Even after living here all this time, I still find the views and the setting absolutely beautiful.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This property has incredible views, mid-century modern architectural features, an eco-friendly style (it's even vegan-friendly!), lovely outdoor space (decks and gardens), and is only about a three minute walk to the beach. It is surrounded by nature and the best hiking trails anywhere, yet close to San Francisco and local towns (Mill Valley, Sausalito), making it the best of both worlds. Enjoy being surrounded by wildlife, the sound of the sea, and San Francisco in the distance.
