Bolinas Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)
This one-of-a-kind historic property sits on a beautiful one-acre parcel on upper Terrace Avenue, a quick walk to Bolinas Beach with great surfing (The Patch and The Lefts) and swimming and the quaint coastal village of Bolinas, where you can visit the local art museum and galleries, enjoy barbecued oysters and great local fare at the Coast Cafe, shop for local fresh produce at several farm stands, or beach-comb at some of the best beaches in the area. Beginning in October migrating Monarch Butterflies populate the Eucalyptus grove on the edge of the property.
Surrounded by gardens and meadows and ringed with Cypress Trees, the award-winning farmhouse, while recalling another era, has been extensively restored and updated with many custom-designed features: a large, bright country kitchen with sleeping loft above and dining room with wood stove; a living room that opens to a wide covered front porch and gardens beyond; and a library with French doors that open to a lawn with a brick barbecue and surrounding gardens. The three bedrooms are all on the second floor and include many built-in amenities including a second sleeping loft, dormer windows, a skylight, built-in desks and views of the surrounding gardens. The bathroom includes a claw-foot tub with shower and a separate toilet room with its own basin. The washer and dryer are in a former creamery building a few steps from the kitchen that has been updated to also include a writing studio with desk.
The property combines an incomparable location with deep roots in the area's history. Originally part of the Briones Land Grant and the home of Jose Briones family in the 1860s, the property was part of one of the first dairy ranches in Bolinas. Since then, the property has been owned by the first founders of Bolinas and many distinguished and talented artists and writers.

Just wanted to thank you again for your kindness and generosity with this Bolinas rental. We had such a great time and I was dreaming of my time there last week and wishing we could have stayed. Hopefully we'll be back soon.
