 The Home:

Stylish and updated 3-bedroom 1-bathroom cottage with modern finishes that oozes charm. The home is bathed in light and opens to an expansive deck for seamless indoor/ outdoor living that embraces the peaceful setting. The gated driveway lends to privacy, and parking for a party.  The added bonus is a sleek detached ADU that has been renovated with designer quality fixtures from the bathroom to the modern kitchen. The soaring ceiling and sweeping views lends to an expansive living environment.

The Setting:

The home is nestled in the hillside perfectly situated to embrace views and capture light.  It is the first home on a dead-end street with no through traffic. The town of San Anselmo owns the lot to the North which gives the home extra privacy and an expansive feeling that lets the sun shine in.  The secluded lot is  welcomed by a large pine at the foot of the driveway and is grounded by an oak tree that grows straight through the ADU.  Flowers thrive in the sunlight from a hearty rose bush by the driveway, to a 100 year old wisteria plant that frames the view from the back unit.  Even empty, the house feels full of life!     

The Location:

The Goldilocks San Anselmo location couldn’t be better with easy access to town, trails and on the South side of Center Blvd for a welcomed alternative to the rush hour of Sir Francis Drake. The home resides in the award-winning Ross Valley School District, that boasts an exceptional educational program from Wade Thomas Elementary to your choice of 5 fabulous Tam Union High Schools. The home is in close proximity to San Anselmo Recreation Department and two parks; Landsdale Park and Memorial Park.  Adults enjoy choosing between two idyllic Marin towns for dining and leisure; quaint downtown San Anselmo to the South, and vibrant Fairfax to the North.

The Bones:

The home draws you in for the eye candy, but there is more to what you see with the eye. The home is owned by an architect who understands the importance of structure. When you drive through the gated entry you are mesmerized with the modern design of the carport. This construction is not only beautiful, it reinforces the hillside with the concrete retaining wall. Even more impressive is what you don’t see. There are extensive French drains on the north side of the property,  and an upgraded copper water line to the street. Not many Marin cottages built in the turn of the century can boast these upgrades.
