Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We moved to Mill Valley in 1998. We love the area so much that we owned properties within a 2 mile radius of our current location. We started with a 1BD/1BA condo, located across the bay from this house. In 2001, we upgraded to a single family home with lots of trees in the backyard. In 2006, we purchased this property which is our favorite so far and would like to share our home as your base for exploring the Bay area.

Why the Owner Chose Almonte, Mill Valley, CA, USA:
We love the panoramic view of the bay, which extends all the way to the East Bay on a clear day. The reflection of the moon on the water is such a spectacular sight. Plus, you get to witness the nice colors of sunrise.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Easy access to Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, Tennessee Valley Trail head, Sausalito, Tiburon, Angel Island, Muir Woods, Stinson Beach, Mt. Tamalpais, Point Reyes National Sea Shore, Napa, Sonoma. Mill Valley is only a 2-1/2 hour day trip to Monterrey & Carmel and 4 hours to Lake Tahoe or Yosemite National Park.
