About the Property

3 bedroom, 2.5 bath mountain view home

This beautifully appointed 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home is perched on a high hill in the community of Muir Beach California. It has stunning panoramic views from the bedrooms and living room that look out on the Muir Woods valley and the ocean facing side of Mount Tamalpais. The location is retreat like, serene, peaceful and private.

The home is accessed by stairs. There are wooden decks on 4 sides, a hot tub and outside dining and lounging furniture. The living, dining, kitchen area is located on the top floor in an open floor plan. The kitchen is fully equipped for preparing meals simple to gourmet and
there is seating for 6 around the dining area table. The living dining room is furnished with leather couches and chairs, iron and glass tables. As in the rest of the house, the living room has wall to wall carpeting.

The second level provides access to the Cal-King bedroom, a smaller bedroom with a 2-twin mattress trundle bed, a shared shower bathroom and a TV/den area. This floor also includes a utility room with washer and dryer.

The third level is the queen master bedroom with a 2 vanity shower bathroom in suite. This bedroom is heated by a gas stove operated easily by remote control. The master suite is quiet and has access to the lower deck and hot tub.

Each bedroom has view windows that look out on the Mount Tamalpais valley.

Environs and Activities
The community of Muir Beach is Stinson Beach's smaller and more accessible cousin. It is 30 minutes away from cosmopolitan San Francisco with its museums, shopping, restaurants and entertainment. It is 15 -20 minutes away from charming Mill Valley or popular tourist destination Sausalito and just 8 minutes away from Muir Woods National Monument.

Muir Beach is a perfect base from which to make day trips north to the coastal towns of Tomales, Point Reyes Station, Stinson Beach, Bolinas, Inverness or Olema; venture north east to the wine country estates of Sonoma or Napa counties, or south or east to other destinations in Marin or the East Bay communities of Berkeley and Oakland.

Visitors to Muir beach enjoy the area for its natural beauty, sweeping views, peace and tranquility and outdoor adventure. While this home does not have ocean views, a 2 minute walk over the hill provides a breathtaking view of the Pacific, the rocky coast and San Francisco in the distance. Trails take visitors down to the beach in minutes or up the coastal trail to hiking destinations in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Mount Tamalpais State Park or Muir Woods. Muir Beach surrounded by natural beauty on all sides.

Favorite north coast activities include: hiking, biking, rock climbing, horseback riding, beach combing, surfing, fishing, boating, kayaking, bird watching, seasonal whale and raptor migration observing, day tripping, city and town cultural events including ballet, symphony, night clubs, live theatre, cinemas, art galleries and museums, health spas, meditation retreats, antiquing, shopping and special events including film festivals, rock, folk and blues concerts and shows, and athletic events.

Pets are not allowed at Mountain House at Muir Beach. Because of the highly flammable wooded and grassland environment, barbecuing is not allowed.

There is a gas Yotil stove in the Master bedroom suite (operated easily with a remote), but the rest of the home has central heating. Operation of the wood stove in the living room is prohibited and can be used only in the event of a multiple day community-wide power outage. Fuel stored on site is for emergency use only.

The community of Muir Beach has no sewer hook up and homes here use septic systems. Because of this there is a maximum (no exceptions) of 6 overnight guests in this vacation home. Daytime visitors up to 12 are allowed..

Because of the septic system renters are advised that no solids other than human waste may be flushed (tampons, pads, diapers, wipes or other.) Harsh cleaning products or personal hygiene products are also prohibited. These include antibacterials, strong soaps, bleach and Irish Spring and strong deodorant products.

Renters and guests may use the telephone supplied in the home for local or emergency calls only and are requested not to order pay per view programs.
