Located on the wooded flanks of Black Mountain and overlooking the grasslands of Nicasio Valley, the "Tree House'' is a truly private getaway. This two story home is nestled among oaks and bay laurels adjacent to an all-year stream that flows to the valley reservoir. The two bedroom, two bath home, with an exceptionally equipped and distinctly outfitted gourmet kitchen, should be enough to keep you comfortably at home. But if daytime activities are in your plans, the town of Point Reyes Station and the National Seashore is a short distance from Tree House. This historical, three block long town, with its unique shops, restaurants, bakeries and weekend farmers market is five minutes away. A twenty minute drive puts you at the Point Reyes National Seashore Visitor Center, the gateway to one of the most unique places on this earth. All within the park are whale watching in winter, amazing walks on sunny or fog shrouded beaches, hiking on miles of trails, or kayaking on the sheltered waters of Tomales Bay. End the day at one of the town's restaurants or back home at the Tree House, sharing the comfort of the wood burning stove, a BBQ on the deck, or your own home cooked evening dinner.
The main gathering area of Tree House is appointed with custom designed contemporary furnishings. A glass block wall bathes the interiors slate floor and brightly colored rugs with morning sun. The dining space, seating six, looks out towards an intimate view of the wooded landscape. The adjoining open kitchen with contemporary stainless steel appliances, Nespresso coffee maker, an array of cookware, and a tasteful selection of tableware makes this home a gourmet's delight. The downstairs bedroom with a cozy double bed is also bathed in sunlight through a glass block wall. This room has a separate exterior entrance off the covered, heated and furnished deck -- a nice place for morning coffee, even in poor weather.
The master bedroom upstairs features a glass enclosed built in window settee. This eight foot long cushioned space projects out into the wooded tree canopy. This is a cozy spot for a good read or a daytime nap. At night, the second floor master bedroom and bath suite with queen bed is a most private and comfortable space. An additional sleeping area with twin beds is offered in the uniquely designed loft space above the living room.
Throughout the house is a collection of artwork by local artists, largely depicting the landscapes and ranch settings of the Nicasio Valley. If you need to remain connected, there is a media center with a TV, DVD player, and an internet connection through an Apple TV. An iMac and WiFi connection is provided. All the furnishings, bedding, accessories and amenities have been selected to make a simple two day weekend or an extended stay as comfortable as can be.
