Property Summary: 


 This is a beautiful, custom wood-crafted home, situated on a large double hillside lot (1/2+ acre) overlooking a picturesque tranquil creek and Blithedale Summit Preserve. It is located near Railroad Grade trail head, which leads directly up to Mt Tam, and some of the most magnificent trails and watershed parkland in Marin. Perfect for hikers, mountain bikers, dog walkers, and general nature lovers!
The property offers a completely private, peaceful location, and yet is only a 15 minute level stroll to wonderful downtown Mill Valley. Come home everyday to your modern mountain-like cabin, but maintain easy access to San Francisco a 20 minute drive away.
This sturdily constructed home was completely rebuilt by a master woodworker, with windows, doors, and cabinets custom made of cherry wood and old growth redwood.
Charming, efficiently designed, and meticulously maintained over the years, it is truly in move-in condition, with stainless steel appliances, all modern amenities, and includes a Swedish wood burning stove for cozy winter evenings.
Nestled in a grove of redwood trees, with no other homes in sight, there are lovely views of trees and hills from every window in the house. Relax on the tranquil, completely private deck and listen to the sound of the lovely creek below. It is the perfect, peaceful, romantic retreat from the stresses of everyday life.
