Down the road from Fairfax and San Anselmo, this is a gem of an artists' home, charming, sparkling and sunny in a wonderful part of Northern California, just 30 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge, doorstep into San Francisco.
The house has white wooden floorboards throughout, stunning views, that all-important heated pool, and very lovely hot-tub nestling in the oaks. You can't help but feel happy here, a home from home. We're surrounded by trees so the house is exceptionally quiet and private. In the summer, it is very hard to leave the house which feels like a mini-resort - the feel and aesthetic is that of a beach-house-on-a-hillside/art-studio-that-people-happen-to-live-in:) We have sun all day, all summer long as we are in a micro-climate (so we have sun while San Francisco is covered in fog).
On our doorstep is the Open-Space of Marin, famous for hiking & mountain-biking. 45 mins from the gorgeous beaches of Stinson & Pt. Reyes National Park, half an hour to the Golden Gate bridge, 1hr from Napa Valley and 5 mins from downtown Fairfax & San Anselmo. It's a perfect place to have as a base for exploring the region, or as an escape from San Francisco. Best suited for a family with 2-4 kids, or a couple (we're not renting it as a party home).
Fully equipped kitchen and sunny outdoor living, with big family table on deck overlooking pool and valley below.
