About the Property
4+ bedrooms, 3 bath, three story home with lovely outdoor space
3,000 square foot spacious & private 4 plus bedroom/3 bath. The main floor has a gorgeous light filled entry hall, beautiful in-laid hardwood floors, a comfortable spacious living room (with tv, surround sound & on demand and netflix), a comfortable library, a formal dining room, gourmet chef's kitchen with granite, breakfast nook and breakfast bar and Professional Series Thermador range (with warming lamps). Three bedrooms and a spacious (fully enclosed and insulated) sleeping porch (with two additional single beds) upstairs. Downstairs has an in-law unit with bedroom and full bath.
Private, shady back patio with BBQ and seating for up to 12.
This is the perfect home base for a wonderful bay area vacation. 10 mile drive to the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco or travel by water on the ferry straight into downtown San Francisco. But after a day of sight seeing in foggy San Francisco, return to sunny, beautiful San Anselmo and your peaceful spacious home. In addition to its proximity to San Francisco, the house is a few blocks from downtown San Anselmo, walking distance from the town of Fairfax, and close to West Marin, beaches, wine country and more.

Centrally located in sunny Marin, San Anselmo is only 10 miles North of San Francisco with a fast ferry to San Francisco (or a short drive over Golden Gate Bridge), and very easy access to Muir Woods, Sausalito, Mount Tamalpais State Park, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Point Reyes National Seashore, Stinson Beach, Muir Beach, Bolinas, and the world-famous Napa/Sonoma Wine Country.
The town of San Anselmo has a charming, creek-side downtown district a few blocks from the house with cafes, restaurants, bakeries, book stores and wine bars. Readers of Sunset Magazine voted San Anselmo “Best in the West” for antiquing because of its' charming small town ambiance, views of the seminary and Mount Tam and over 30 antique stores within walking distance of each other. The town of Fairfax, with live music venues, a movie theater, restaurants, bars and shopping is only 1.6 miles from the house.
For the outdoor enthusiasts, there are abundant hiking trails and open space areas. There is a trail head within a short walk of the house, and a longer walk or short drive (1.5 miles) will take you to Natalie Coffin Greene Park and Phoenix Lake with shorter hikes and mountain biking as well as access to all the Mount Tam trails. Bike rentals are available in town.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We enjoy taking the ferry to San Francisco, walking to town, hiking the nearby trails, camping, eating and cooking.
Why the Owner Chose San Anselmo, CA, USA:
An inviting, spacious, wonderful family home, it is also perfect for entertaining. We love cooking gourmet meals in the fabulous kitchen and sharing cocktails or a glass of wine with friends on the back terrace or in the library or living room.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love this location. We can go into San Francisco, visit the beach, wine country, Muir Woods, or the rural beauty of Point Reyes. In five minutes, we can walk downtown to enjoy a meal or a coffee or a hike on the trails.
