Gorgeous 3 BR Home. Perfect Location Between Wine Country And City!

Light-filled home at the end of quite cul-de-sac,5 minutes from I-101 freeway, 20 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge and 30 minutes from Napa and Sonoma winecountry!

Award winning neighborhood,nestled between oak forests and small creeks. Hiking/walking trails galore!

You will sleep well in this quiet neighborhood and awake to sunlight and birdsong. Then a leisurely breakfast in the large,fully equipped kitchen with premium appliances

(often you can watch deer and wild turkeys from the kitchen window !) or outside on the beautiful, sunny,private deck.

In the evenings you can relax and enjoy a glass of wine in front of the gas fireplaces in the living room or den,sit on the deck looking at the stars or soak in the completely private hottub.

Your daily adventures might include:

A drive to wine-country ( 30 minutes away), a walk on the beach (fabulous Pt.Reyes National Seashore is about 40 minutes away), exploring the city (20 minute drive to the Golden Gate or 10 minutes to the Larkspur Ferry which will take you to town), strolling through Sausalito ( 15 minute drive) or being awed by the ancient redwood groves in Muir Woods ( 30 minutes away).

A long daytrip could also include Lake Tahoe which is about a 3 1/2 hour drive.

The house has all the amenities one could wish for including FREE WiFI.

                                                                  WhizKidFlourtown, Pa. (near Philly)

                                                                  What a treasure it was to stay in this beautifully situated home. It is a true classic with beautiful touches everywhere. We had wonderful meals in the dining room, and always took the dessert and wine outside under the stars while seated on the charming deck.

                                                                  I was able to prepare a really special dinner one evening with our son and his fiance, and everything I needed was within reach. Dinners were a breeze. We slept wonderfully, and had our coffee out on the upper deck. Each morning you are treated to a spectacular parade of nature itself with deers, turkeys, eating together in true harmony. It set up your entire day off so peacefully.

                                                                  Novato is only a 20 minute drive to San Francisco and all that the city offers. Closer to Novato are San Rafeal, Larkspur, Mill Valley and Petaluma are worth a visit as well. And, all are a very close in proximity to Novato.

                                                                  It was a privilege to stay at this incredible home, it has everthing you can imagine and more. What a delightful experience, Yes, we can not wait to return to this wonderful oasis in our beloved city by the bay. We were thrilled to be houseguests for a month. Don't miss out on this gem, it is an experience you & your family will long remember.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you so much for your kind words! It was a pleasure to have you as guests and I am looking forward to your next visit!

                                                                  Beautiful home, quiet neighborhood, great location!

                                                                  caren o.

                                                                  My parents spent 5 weeks in this home for the 2nd year in a row. It's incredibly comfortable and well situated for enjoying Marin, SF, West Marin, Sonoma and beyond. The natural setting is a big draw....my parents loved seeing the deer and turkeys and having access to all of the hiking trails right in the neighborhood. The owner has done a great job of making the house comfortable and easy to feel at home in. In my mother's words, "I could just move right in!" It's a fantastic spot! We hope to have them back next year!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

Every morning on our walk we would see deer . We would deafeningly stay here again .The owner was great 'very helpful.

                                                                  Fabulous home

                                                                  Hillside retreat!

The home was as pictured. It is a quiet neighborhood. We saw deer most days and a few turkeys and even a coyote. The kitchen is well-stocked. We enjoyed our stay.

                                                                  Exceptional is the only adequate word

The home is welcoming, well-appointed, with numerous different areas for relaxing. The house and grounds are meticulous, quiet, and private (with daily constitutionals by local dear). The neighbors, and their pets, were very friendly. The owner provided prompt support and recommendations for local resources (grocery, vineyards, restaurants, sights). Would stay there again. Convenient to both Napa and Sonoma.
