About the property

Large, Sunny, Elegant House-Pool, Hot Tub, Decks & Views galore, Trails & Quiet

A spacious SUNNY, South Facing home above the redwoods awaits you. Unforgettable panoramic views over folding hills, above the fog, to San Francisco in every room. Walk to Mount Tamalpais Trail system, or by creeks through park short-cuts to storybook Mill Valley center Plaza for a coffee or a glass of wine--- or a movie, play and a superb dinner. Your quiet home on two cul-de-sacs offers freedom from traffic noise and pollution, yet is only a 10-minute drive or 20-minute walk to town.

Huge windows in every room face the sun and city and bring in ever-changing sky views.

3,400 Sq. Ft., two large bedrooms with king beds, an elegant, yet nature-loving living room with a big deck overlooking the city, the pool, and hot tub. And a Mill Valley Miracle: Easy Parking and Turn Around on a level street that is a cul-de-sac with multiple parking spots.

We have just finished a 2-year remodel. Brand new top-flight kitchen with super reactive, safe, and easy to clean INDUCTION stove, an Advantium, and big convection oven with new Jade Labradorite counters flashing blue perlescense at every turn. There is a new (3rd) bathroom with a big shower with beautiful glass tiled wall, new flooring of Red Maple, and many upgrades!

Your hostess, Gayle, speaks fluent Italian and French and would be delighted to talk over Skype to answer any questions.

Why Gayle Delaney chose Mill Valley

Mill Valley is a dream town--- small, but sophisticated, near San Francisco and the wine country and nearly adjacent to a State Park ( MT Tamalpais State Park) and about 45 minutes from world-famous Pt. Reyes National Park. This house is near enough to walk to town, yet high enough to catch the sun and to offer encompassing views and is walking distance to Mt. Tam State Park trail system. The air is fresh, and few cars visit our cul-de-sacs. Casual Elegance with more than a few hints of our love for the Art Deco Style.

What makes this house unique

This house champions the revival of playful, enhancing, warming COLOR. A visit here leaves indelible imprints of aliveness and thoughtful design aimed at the delight and comfort of owners and guests. We do not like institutional coldness and rental design that is bland and takes shortcuts. You will know you are guests in our home, not our "rental."

Since our other rentals have been through personal connections with Swiss, French, and Italian friend-of-friends, we have had a wonderful time renting our house about once a year for about 5 years. Sometimes, the guests return while we are living in the house (we have lots of room) and we got to practice languages. Renting to people we do not know leads us to ask you to tell us a bit of yourselves and reassure us that you will care for our beloved home as we do!

Car: necessary

When friends and European renters and guests stay here the all say they have found paradise. The comfort and the big, open views of redwood hills, the valley, and of San Francisco enter your entire experience in the house. The house is spacious and comfortable to be and walk about in. this is not a hard-edged modern house, but a retreat to relax in where colors abound and carpets cushion your feet. Very comfy beds and seating.
