Property description

Beautiful skylight-lit home nestled into a wooded hillside. Quiet, secluded location but close to everything - about two miles from Point Reyes Station, Inverness, and the Point Reyes National Seashore visitors' center. Plus an easy 5 min walk for coffee or a sandwich at Perry's Deli, or birding at the Giacomini Wetlands.

Built in 1919, the home features old growth redwood through out. Open, fully-equipped kitchen. Large dining / living room area with chairs for lounging in front of the wood-burning stove, and couches for relaxing and play games. One bathroom with a wood-paneled shower and tub. New outdoor shower! Two bedrooms - one has a Queen sized McRoskey bed, the other has a comfy double bed. There is also a queen sized sleeper sofa in the living room. Skylights in every room.

Right out the back door there are three the levels of patios dotted with ferns, providing views of the surrounding Douglas Fir and Bay forest. The first level is a brick patio with a BBQ, the second level has a table and chairs for enjoying a scenic lunch, and the third level has Adirondack chairs to enjoy the views or a good book.

The home has a second unit on the lower floor, occupied by a full time local resident with separate entrance. Some sounds can transmit through the floor. A washer and dryer, shared by both units, are located in a common area on the lower level. Stairs from this area lead up to the vacation rental unit.

- Kayaking, sailing, and swimming on Tomales Bay

- Variety of hiking trails (coastal, mountain, grassland, forest, redwood, and beach trails), and incredible wildflowers, birding, and wildlife viewing.

- Great road biking; favorites are up the coast on Rt 1, or a scenic tour of Nicasio and Lucas Valleys. Experienced riders can even cover the 50 miles from San Francisco in a day

- Within 30 miles of the Muir Woods old growth coastal redwoods and Mt. Tamalpais, home to stunning ocean and bay area views and the birthplace of mountain biking.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We love hiking, biking, and kayaking in beautiful places. And we're big fans of kind, ecologically-minded people, and delicious, fresh, local food. This makes us a good match for each other and for Point Reyes. We met in graduate school at UC Berkeley studying energy efficiency and renewable energy, and got married in Point Reyes in 2011. We live in Oakland, which is known as 'over the hill' to our West Marin friends.
