About the property

Spacious Multi-Level Home One Block From Downtown!

This chic and sophisticated multi-level property is conveniently located on one of downtown Mill Valley's most charming and coveted streets. A sleek yet cozy home, this 2014 custom-built residence boasts an expansive, private outdoor space (back and side lawns, a hot tub, a BBQ, and several decks on a 6,500 square foot lot) perfect for entertaining, all in a quaint neighborhood just around the corner from the heart of downtown's shops, the Depot Bookstore, restaurants, cafes, theaters and the award-winning library.

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.

The third bath is a half-bath for guests and is located conveniently off the living room upstairs. The fourth bath is located in the studio (see details below).

There is one TV, in the living room. A $20 AppleTV credit is reserved for the duration of each guest stay (log in with your AppleTV account, let us know, and we'll credit your VRBO payment $20). No stereo system, no gate clicker.

The main outdoor space is highlighted by a patio with couches and dining table for six under bistro lights and 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 (toilet, sink, mini fridge) 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.

Immaculate and super spacious!

  • 5 of 5

This home is so much more than we expected, the photos do not do it justice. We are not normally "modern style" people, but we were so pleased with the floor plan and design of this home, everything is top notch quality from the high end appliances to the detailed finishes. We loved that there was plenty of space for our family to gather and yet lots of little garden hideaways to have privacy from each other if we wanted. It was a very important event for our family, my daughter's wedding, and we chose this home because it was in easy walking distance to her venue at the OAC. She was so pleased with this house that she and her two maids of honor opted to get ready for the wedding here instead of at the facilities that were offered at the venue. The property manager, Adrienne, was so responsive and helpful...excellent experience, wonderful home.

Spectacular home, true to pictures and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for a family event in Marin County over a long weekend. We cannot say enough about the beauty and functionality of this home. My husband is an architect and we truly appreciated the quality and attention to detail in the design and construction. The layout is very practical with the bedrooms on the lower level, all with doors to the peaceful outdoor spaces, including a fabulous spa! That left the open great room and kitchen area for family get together time. Extremely well equipped kitchen (which my son-in-law chef really appreciated) and everything was easy to find.

Adrienne was extremely easy to communicate with and very responsive. Any questions I had (not many, because she was so informative at the outset) were immediately responded to.

The location is terrific, being able to walk to nearby restaurants, coffee shops and other shopping. It was nice to get to know Mill Valley better - it's a very charming town without being pretentious. Our only regret was that our stay was too short! Would highly recommend this lovely home for couples, families or a girlfriend getaways type of thing. It would also be great for an executive retreat.

Home not a House

  • 5 of 5

If you looking for a fabulous home that has everything you need - book this property. Management company is very responsive to any request or issue we had during our stay.

Mill Valley is a village straight out of European fairy tale. From this homes location you can walk to dining, grocery store or a movie.

Best of all are l the great hiking trails inches from the front door.

Nice location. Plenty of room for all of our group. Off-street parking a plus!

  • 4 of 5

THe house had almost everything we needed for our group of 8 people staying in the house. We used every bed & all the linens & towels and every kitchen item available. Just missing a ladle, garbage bags, swiffer pads & broom. We wanted to leave the place as clean as we found it. It was perfect for the few more guests that joined us for an "after-party" following my son's wedding at the Outdoor Art Club, which is in easy walking distance. Our group & our other guests ALL mentioned that the place needs some window coverings as all the bed rooms face a common area outside & some prefer some privacy. The window in the dining room area streams in sunshine late afternoon that bakes & causes anyone facing west to need sunglasses! THe light is nice at other times of day, but needs a shade for the afternoon hours. The place was as advertised. We enjoyed our stay & would recommend it to others who like modern architecture & fancy fixtures.

Owner's Response: Hi Linda! Thanks so much for your review, and feedback which is invaluable. I'm so glad your group enjoyed your time in the home. I will purchase a ladle (good point!) and the custom shades for the downstairs bedroom are on order. But I wanted to say that there actually were two brooms available (one outdoor and one indoor), extra trash bags (to use while the custom bags were in order, which I explained to you), and a box of swiffer pads were near the swiffer in the utility closet. Again, I'm so glad you enjoyed the home and you're welcome back any time! PS In the future, please consider honoring the check in time (you arrived 1.5 hours early) and you had communicated that you'd be arriving first and guests later, but it seemed your entire group arrived with you earlier than the check in time while I was still cleaning and wanted access (while you entered onto the property to take a look around, which caught me of guard).
