This vintage mid-century house has the classic living space of that period – a central wrap around fireplace and chimney that defines the open-beam living room, dining room, and the kitchen, all with an open floor plan, extensive skylights and picture windows that emphasizes the large size of the living spaces. Three bedrooms, all with queen size beds, are in their own wing. There are two bathrooms, one of which is in the master suite. There is a media room with HD TV, Blu Ray DVD, and cable TV. A daybed with trundle bed in the media room can be used as two twin beds for the kids. Also in the media room is a desk for writing or catching-up on your email. Hardwood floors and forced air heating throughout the house. Fast, large washer/dryer are available in the garage.

The private outdoor space is unsurpassed. The beautiful enclosed large deck sits among the redwoods, and the large private back patio is an ideal space for a barbecue-all surrounded by mature redwood trees. All rooms exit out into either the patio or the deck through glass doors.

This property is very tranquil and quiet. The house is nestled in a redwood forest, surrounded by mature redwood trees, a creek, and a truly peaceful, romantic setting. Every room in the house has a window facing the redwoods that circle the home, bringing in natural light. All three bedrooms have sliding glass doors: two face the large front deck and the master suite faces the large patio and garden.

Our residential neighborhood is tranquil and quiet and family-oriented. A ten minute stroll, along the Corte Madera creek and through massive 100+ year-old redwoods of Miller Grove brings you to the center of the quaint village of Mill Valley. Walk 5 minutes the other direction and you are into Blithedale Park and beyond up Mount Tamalpais to its many hiking trails.

Business in downtown Mill Valley include numerous high-end and casual restaurants, a grocery store/deli, a fantastic local bakery and a wide variety of boutiques. There are also many entertainment options: the historic Sweetwater Music Hall, the 142 Throckmorton Comedy Club, and a vintage movie theater. Marin Theatre Company is just a 5 minutes drive away.

Mill Valley has two Whole Foods markets, a Friday Farmer's Market, and organic sections in the historical market and two Safeway Stores.

For hiking, mountain biking, surfing and more, Mount Tamalpais State Park, Muir Woods National Monument, Stinson Beach, and the Marin Headlands are all just minutes away. Sausalito and Tiburon are both tourist destinations and also minutes away. The Napa and Sonoma Wine countries are only an hours drive north. And of course, the world-class city of San Francisco and all it has to offer is only 15 minutes away across the Golden Gate Bridge.

About Brent Lok

I grew up in Mill Valley in the 60s and recently came back purchasing my dream home nestled in the redwoods.

Brent Lok purchased this house in 2014

Why Brent Lok chose San Francisco Bay Area

It's been lots of fun furnishing this dream home in authentic mid-century furnishings, bringing back childhood memories. Now I'd like to share this dream home with you, my guests. I'd also like to share all the home and the beautiful surrounding area has to offer guests: hiking, dining, entertainment, sightseeing, and SF nightlife.

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with this home because it was a home nestled in the redwoods. From every window in the house and from the amazing deck and patio you see redwoods. While its only a 10 minute walk along the Corte Madera creek into downtown Mill Valley with all its shopping and restaurants, you also have all the hiking trails of Mount Tamalpais right at your doorsteps. Its a short 15 minute ride across the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco and all it has to offer. It's also only 60 minutes to the Sonoma and Napa wine country.

Great place to spend time with friends and family. We will cherish these memories forever.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days at the property. Unfortunately it rained all through and it was too cold and wet to venture out. So hours were spent in front of the fireplace playing board games, walking to the nearby restaurants when the rain allowed. The property became our home for a short time, and there was all we needed.

The large living space connected to the dining and also TV room enabled all of us to be together even while doing our own thing. The kitchen was great though we could not use the outside grill we hope that next time we will.

Will probably return!

Very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 adults and 2 young children thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mill Valley and more particularly at Brent and Wade's house.

Everything we needed to make our holiday an enjoyable and memorable holiday was provided at the house.

Over the years we have stayed at a number of rentals and we have no hesitation in saying this rental was one of the best and we recommend it highly to others.

The house is well located to the Mill Valley township and only 25 mins by car to the City.

The setting of the house amongst the Redwoods makes the house and location very special indeed

The description of the property is accurately outlined on the site

The house was very clean and well maintained.

The 3 restaurants we ate at all provided quality meals

Updated House in the Redwoods

  • 5 of 5

The house is a completely updated, mid-century modern house. It is very well furnished and equipped. It was just right for a three couple family reunion. Although tucked in a quiet lane in a redwood canyon, it is only a few minutes from the center of the charming town of Mill Valley (by foot or car). Communication with Brent were excellent, assuring an easy entry and a smooth exit. The location is perfect for visiting the most scenic parts of Marin County as well as the city of San Francisco.

The house was very nice, clean, and comfy. Also, very quiet and located in the woods, but convenient to the quaint Mill Valley town. We grilled one night and then relaxed with the fireplace (gas and easy to use). Brent, the owner, was very accommodating. There had been a light left on in a locked maid's closet. We text him the next day and someone immediately came to turn it off. Also, a chirping low battery was heard behind another locked door. Again, he immediately sent someone to change the batteries. We appreciated the good service.
