Fronted by a blooming English garden and a picture perfect white picket fence this wonderful family home will surprise and delight you. Step inside this 1907 home and you will be enchanted by its high ceilings, wooden floors, bay windows and expansive two story floor plan which features 5 bedrooms and 3 baths.
The upper floor features a stunning living room with a bay window, crown molding and the original marble fireplace. Comfortable for family living and a wonderful space for entertaining, the main floor offers a light filled dining room and a large colorful kitchen with a sunny built in breakfast nook. Filling out the main floor is the sun drenched master bedroom which features vaulted ceilings, a walk-in closet, a spacious sitting room and gorgeous French doors that open onto the deck. A second bedroom and full bath complete the upper floor. Charm galore.
An expansive deck wraps around the entire rear of the upstairs of the house and is large enough to accommodate a large outdoor dining table and barbecue. The jasmine covered deck looks out over the large private backyard which comes complete with storage and a wonderful elevated playhouse. Old growth redwoods, fruit trees, water fountains and many meandering vines make this property a hidden oasis.
Descend the spiral staircase and you’ll find yourself in the screening room where you can gather to watch movies, play games or just hang out. Three bedrooms, a spacious laundry room and a full bath surround the screening room making for a fabulous space for children with easy access to the huge backyard. An added bonus is a giant storage space that is nicely hidden. Tucked away behind the house is a one car garage -- a perfect spot for bicycles and sporting goods.
Just a few minutes walking from the fabulous shops and restaurants of downtown Mill Valley and a block from Boyle Park and the award-winning Park Elementary School this house sits in one of the most coveted neighborhoods in Marin on a flat quiet street. Close to everything yet it feels worlds apart.
This charming home is frequently on the Mill Valley Art and Garden's historical tours and has been featured in Better Homes and Gardens magazine and on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
