Fig Cakes Hill is a 1912, brown shingle house that has just been lovingly renovated as our weekend getaway. Just north of the village of Inverness, Fig Cakes sits on a hill, with a long sloping lawn down to Sir Francis Drake Road and Tomales Bay.
Downstairs is a living room with a huge stone fireplace and a dining room with a long table that seats 12. Both of these rooms have double sets of French doors, that open onto a porch overlooking the Bay. The new kitchen has been enlarged, so that now it is a perfect place to cook with friends. It is complete with place settings for 20 plus and plenty of high quality cookware, a Viking range, two Kitchen Aid dishwashers, and plenty of work space on its new concrete counter tops.
Also downstairs is one of the five bedrooms, with its own full bath, ideal for anyone who is not comfortable with the stairs. The downstairs is handicapped-accessible.
Upstairs are four additional bedrooms. Two have full baths and the other two have half baths and share a brand-new hallway shower room. Four of the five bedrooms have water views, two have king-size beds, three have queen size beds, and two of the bedrooms have private decks. In fact, there is a total of 6 decks at Fig Cakes, two of them large enough for groups to hang out and mingle. The master bath has a whirlpool tub/shower combination.
Within minutes, guests can be hiking, walking on the beach, shopping or looking at art galleries in Inverness or Point Reyes Station, visiting the Point Reyes National Seashore, or eating in one of the interesting restaurants in the area.
