Why Kathy Dennison chose San Francisco Bay Area

We designed and built this home ourselves over the course of several years. We have infused our love of art and craftsmanship into every aspect of the design and construction, from inlaid fossils in the concrete floors, custom wrought iron railings that mimic the tree branches seen through the picture windows and custom hammered metal door handles.

What makes this house unique

Our property is adjacent to Open Space Preserve so is private, quiet and surrounded by nature, yet a short 20 minute drive to San Francisco.

Exceptional Property and Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family members, ranging in age from 71 to 3 years of age, from California, Minnesota and Wisconsin, thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful home and property over the holidays. We participated in outdoor activities (walking, running, soccer, tennis, trampoline, ball games, etc.) and indoor games (pingpong, pool, board games) along with other enjoyable family activities, experiences and opportunities. We have fond memories of our family's time together. Impressive views of San Francisco and the bay were observed on clear days and nights. Muir Woods, Muir Beach, historic sites, and a variety of restaurants and shopping centers were within reasonable driving distances. The owners were helpful in providing explicit instructions for our ease and comfort in staying at their home for the week. They promptly responded to our inquiries. The home was in immaculate condition when we arrived...(and when we departed). We highly recommend this property.

Thanksgiving with friends and family

  • 5 of 5

This is a magnificent home. The views are spectacular, the amenities are endless. We loved it so much, we cut our sight seeing short, to be able to just sit and relax. Thank you for sharing your home with us, and we hope to return next Thanksgiving.
