If the white shiplap siding, black trim, seam metal roofing, and spacious front porch characteristic of modern farmhouse design gives you all the storybook feels—and if you've been dying to move to Mill Valley since forever—this Sycamore Park home may be your happily ever after.
Designed by local architect Kelly Haegglund, the house at 63 Hilarita has all that, right down to the cedar picket fence and indoor/outdoor spaces for taking in the breezy landscape.
Sunshine lights the 2,555-square-foot open floor plan with lots of windows and high ceilings, and each room here feels intended for relaxation. The Venetian plaster fireplace in the living room is a lovely spot to curl up on cool nights. The kitchen invites everyone to hang out with a sizable eat-in counter, a bright breakfast nook, and an open dining area that doubles as a sun room with windows and a sliding glass door that open to a garden blooming with gardenias. Built-in cabinets and shelving provide space to display collections and cookbooks.
There are four bedrooms, each with high pitched ceilings, on the second level. The primary suite has views of Mt. Tam, plenty of closet space, and a pretty-yet-practical bathroom with a dual sink vanity with ample storage and a roomy walk-in shower. A laundry room and loft finish out this space.
For a bit of recreational fun, head downstairs to enjoy movie night in the family room or outside to the back deck to catch some sun in the expansive yard.
