Next time you find yourself feeling fed up with the rat race of the city, of being packed in like sardines, of calling the breezeway beneath your upstairs neighbors' balcony "the backyard," remember this Mill Valley home, where the one-third acre setting feels like a private park.
Surrounded by oaks, Japanese maples, and redwoods, the property has a number of meandering paths and flagstone patios; there are also multiple ipe decks for enjoying the outdoors. Oh, and the house itself is pretty nice too.
The first thing you'll notice is the array of floor-to-ceiling windows and skylights aimed at bringing the outdoors in; many of the rooms also open onto the yard.
Newly remodeled, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom house has grand architectural elements such as cathedral ceilings in the great room, Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, Pella & Anderson doors and bay windows, and custom Italian lighting.
The kitchen has a granite breakfast bar, stainless steel Wolf appliances, and a wine fridge—the perfect space to host a casual gathering. The dining room sits across the way. The living room feels reminiscent of a greenhouse, only warmed by a fireplace. Two bedrooms round out the rest of the main floor, each with access to an expansive deck in the front of the home.
Downstairs, the spacious master bedroom has a large walk-in closet and a spa-like bath with a luxe soaking tub and stylish dual sink vanity. Afterwards, chill in the family room, perfect for cuddling up and watching a flick.
