A-frame house surrounded by open space-100 feet to miles and miles of trails in protected land. Three bed, two bath house on dead-end street. French doors open onto deck with fire pit and propane heater. 30 to 45 min. drive to San Francisco (16 miles to the Golden Gate Bridge). Great road and mountain biking right out the door.
Our professionally decorated home has a renovated kitchen with commercial grade appliances, including a six burner Dacor gas cooktop. The decor can be described as Pottery Barn meets West Elm, with a few colorful Oriental rugs as accents. We recently added eleven skylights, so there's lots of natural light. We also recently added a 600 square foot patio with a fire pit under the oak trees, just outside French doors from the living room. Most of the living space is in the great room area, and the bedrooms are pleasant but somewhat small. Overall, the place is very clean and uncluttered. The downstairs bathroom was recently renovated and features a deep soaking tub. The upstairs bathroom has a shower, and a new tile floor. Our daughter's bedroom upstairs has a comfortable single bed. There are bunkbeds in our son's room downstairs. Upstairs is the master bedroom with a new, California King size bed, with new flannel sheets and Ralph Lauren bedspread and down pillows. In the great room, there is an air conditioner which is hardly ever necessary, but available in case you wish to use it. We have a good movie collection, and two large flat screen televisions, with a movie sound system in the family room, along with a long L-shaped couch. We also have Comcast On-Demand and Netflix subscriptions. We enjoy entertaining here, as the great room and patio all flow together, making a cheerful and attractive party space where everyone can be near each other, but with enough space to relax. It is a great place to be, but not too delicate that you have to worry much if you bring your children or small dog.
Downtown Fairfax is a mile and a half away - with many restaurants and shops, and live music every night of the week in multiple venues. Great breakfast/coffee places, lots of great people-watching. Fairfax is described as "Mayberry on Acid". As the birthplace of mountain biking, as well as the gateway to rural West Marin, you'll see hundreds of cyclists, both road and mountian, pour through Fairfax on the weekends. With a great hippie vibe, Fairfax is fun to hang out from the early morning to late at night. We love living here, and we know you'll love visiting! For a great article about Marin in the New York Times - search for "36 Hours in Marin".
Our neighborhood is extremely quiet and is bordered by open space. The street is shaded by large oak trees. It's a great place to walk both day and night (bring a flashlight). We are near the end, so the open space trails are just steps away. Downtown Fairfax is a vibrant area with restaurants, bars and shops. We love it here, and we think you will too!
We are about 1.5 miles from downtown Fairfax. It's a nice walk, but most likely you'll want to drive.
