About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

We welcome you to your ideal Marin retreat. Nestled in the trees of Cascade Canyon, this home is warm, bright, and comfortable. The heart of the house is its huge, sunny, gourmet kitchen with large marble island and wine fridge. Snuggle up in front of the homey gas fireplace in the high-ceilinged greatroom. Windows and French doors are everywhere, filling the interior with sunlight and providing views of the oaks, bays, madrones, and redwoods of the canyon.

The large master bedroom has a king bed and high wood-beamed ceiling, with a charming window bench and walk-in closet. The second bedroom features a queen bed under a bank of bright windows, ceiling fan, and an adjoining bath with a serene, spa-like feel. The adorable child’s bedroom sleeps two in its trundle bed, and has an en-suite full bath.

The outdoor spaces rival the indoor. Enjoy your morning coffee at the bistro table on the kitchen balcony, and dine al-fresco at the teak patio dining table. Read the Sunday paper in the comfy outdoor living room. Cool off in the newly renovated large in-ground swimming pool, or warm up under the stars in the hot-tub. Chilly mornings or evenings won't keep you indoors - the gas firebowl will keep you warm as you sit in the surrounding rocking chairs. The very private, south-facing yard is sunny all day long, but there is plenty of shade under the trees, as well. There are abundant poolside chairs, lounges, steamers, and cushions for your whole party to sunbathe, or find some extra shade under the large market umbrellas. Get your game day on day or night with our bocce court, complete with decomposed granite surface, lit up with landscape lights and overhead bistro lights.

There’s lots to do just outside your door, too. Walk up the street to explore the Elliott Nature Preserve with it’s creeks and famous waterfall. Walk down the street to Downtown Fairfax to window shop and get an espresso, or catch a movie at the Fairfax Theater. Don’t let the small-town feel fool you - Fairfax is famous for its many (12+!) restaurants, including a hip new wine bar, and its thriving live music scene. This town is also renowned for it’s world-class mountain biking and hiking, so bring your gear!

This is also the perfect jumping-off spot for your Bay Area exploration. Just 30 minutes south, and you’ll cross the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco. Heading north the same distance brings you to the Sonoma and Napa Valleys for wine tasting and exploring Sonoma Square or Healdsburg. Go west a half hour, and you’ll find some of the world’s most beautiful and unspoiled coastal areas and beaches - Stinson, Bolinas, Point Reyes, and Tomales Bay are highlights. The majestic redwoods of Samuel P. Taylor State Park and Muir Woods are minutes away, as well.

You’ll love your stay at this beautiful home, and the adventures you’ll have nearby. We welcome you to our little slice of paradise. Please contact us for more information, and click the link below for more pictures of the house.
