Property description

This superb new cottage at Stinson Beach is a splendid retreat for small families with children or for two couples. The detailed design by Berkeley architect Mark Hulbert (Preservation Architecture) features radiant heat, tons of windows, travertine floors and vibrant interior finishes- It's completely equipped so it’s ready for you to walk in and enjoy. Less than 200 hundred feet from the beach, the house features beautiful views of the coastal mountains, lovely but filtered views of the ocean and is surrounded by gardens. A lovely deck right off the kitchen and dining room has great views and brings the interior spaces to the exterior. A covered exterior stairs connects the upstairs living area with the downstairs bedroom, adding to the indoor/outdoor feel of the beach cottage. The house is new and about as green as they come- compact and efficient. With radiant heat, a solar array, and LED lighting, we can’t consume much less energy. Yet the house is outfitted with the kind of conveniences we all need: satellite television service, HD TV, WIFI, blue ray disc player, and many games- so there’ll be plenty for you and your family to do. Whether it’s sports, movies or internet, it’s there.
We have direct beach access (right next door) and beach chairs and accessories for a great day at the beach. There is a BBQ on the ground level and all manner of other necessary paraphanalia. If hiking is your thing, we’re a short ten minute walk from the Dipsea Trail and Steep Ravine- two of the most stunning trails on the west coast. If you’re like us and food is a major part of your experience, you'll enjoy our well equipped kitchen or one of several local restaurants. The house is set up with dishes, basic spices, pots, pans, linens and towels and a washer/dryer. We ask you to be very careful with your use of water, as the extreme drought means we may well be rationing by the time of your visit. Rationing by the Stinson Beach Water District may soon be put in place.

The adjacent mountains have a number of gorgeous trails for both short and long hikes. There are dramatic ocean views from nearly all of these trails including the Bolinas Lagoon, the village of Stinson Beach not to mention the beach itself.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My wife and I built this house for our use together with our families and friends. We've spared nothing in detailing the building and we love the open feel of it, particularly the light. We love the area as well- the mountains and beach- the hiking and the stars- it's a great get-away!

Why the Owner Chose Stinson Beach, CA, USA:
This particular property has a unique relationship with the hills and ocean. It's within walking distance from two of our favorite trails in West Marin- Steep Ravine and the Dipsea Trail-It's close to the restaurants of the village and it's right next to the beach. It is next to our sister house- both houses can be rented together for two families or for friends who want to spend time together at the beach.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We've really spent time on personalizing the cottage- from creating vibrant color palettes that remind us of a certain freedom that exists at the beach, to carefully considered choices on tile, glass, wood and lighting. For us it represents a range of decisions that is well suited to us and reinforces the feeling of being happy to be at the beach.
