About the Property
Spacious Multi-Level Home One Block From Downtown!
This 2,500 square foot Craftsman-style home is modern but comfortable. The sun-drenched open-style floor plan features four bedrooms, four baths, a separate studio, indoor/outdoor accessibility from almost every room, high ceilings, wide-plank hardwood floors, a chef's kitchen, multiple dining areas (a dining table, counter seating, and island seating), and a three-sided Art Nouveau fireplace.
The spacious kitchen offers a rare Kinawa Satin granite countertop and zinc counter accent, plus an imported Italian gas range, wine refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, and stainless steel appliances. The adjoining deck has a bird's eye view of the yard below, rolling hillsides, and the quaint details of the picturesque hamlet of downtown Mill Valley, located 20 minutes north of San Francisco's iconic Golden Gate Bridge.
The four bedrooms are located downstairs. The master bedroom features a four-poster bed, en suite bathroom with a luxurious rain shower and deep soaking tub, walk-in closets, and a private deck. There is an additional full bath and three guest bedrooms, each opening out to a deck and lawn, offering a perfect flow for entertaining and family activities. The stacked washer/dryer is also located on the lower level. Sleeping Occupancy: 8 guests maximum.
There are two TVs: in the living room and master bedroom. A $20 AppleTV credit is reserved for the duration of each guest stay. No stereo system, no gate clicker.
The main outdoor space is highlighted by a giant Redwood tree, a hot tub hugged by bamboo, and a custom water feature ideal for relaxing and entertaining. The studio includes a bathroom and is a sweet spot to unwind with a good book and a glass of wine.
Despite being located in downtown Mill Valley, the home feels very private. In the front, there is a custom-made automated steel passenger gate that opens onto a private courtyard with room for two cars, spacious storage lockers perfect for bikes, outdoor equipment, or children's necessities.
Walk Score of 90 out of 100. This location is a Walker’s Paradise so daily errands do not require a car.
Nearby parks include Old Mill Park, Old Mill Park and Norris Memorial Park.
This spacious and inviting home welcomes locals, travelers, families, and dog owners (with an additional pet deposit) and is available for a minimum of three nights, with discounts applied to weekly and monthly rentals.
Please be advised that rates are higher during the Mill Valley Film Festival (October), Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve.
This property is managed, maintained, and marketed by ConciergeMarin.
Note: We also manage two more stunning homes in Mill Valley, one near downtown (sleeps 4) and one in Sycamore Park (sleeps 6). Please inquire with us about these other properties if you feel a smaller place would better suit your needs.
