Sublime and inviting! This charming, sunny, garden cottage is a 5 min. flat walk to downtown or the Mt. Tamalpais trailheads. The property is a large, sunny lot landscaped with gardens and patios. The cottage was newly re-built in 2010 to code including a fire sprinkler system. The furnishings were purchased new, and the art is locally sourced. It is situated behind the main house, has its own patio, and excellent privacy. Fireplace, granite counters, high ceilings, natural light, -- 650 sq. ft. of lovely sanctuary, with off-street parking. You'll want to move in.
Voted Best Marin Town in 2011 -- the quaint village of Fairfax is lively, with one main intersection, lots of great places to eat (health food, Indian, Thai, Mexican, Italian, and more), a 6-screen movie theater, several live-music clubs/bars, multiple coffee houses and bike shops, grocery stores, a weekly farmer’s market, several yoga studios, and a large new, upscale health food store. The town is surrounded by nature and miles of hiking and biking trails on and around Mt. 'Tam' (the birth place of mountain biking over 30 years ago).
Centrally located in sunny Marin County's best weather area, it offers easy access to San Francisco (by car, bus, or ferry), Mount Tamalpais State Park, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, West Marin and Point Reyes National Seashore, the Pacific Coast beaches at Stinson Beach, Muir Beach, or Bolinas, and the world-famous Napa/Sonoma Wine Country. And don't forget the other charming towns in Marin, including Sausalito, Mill Valley, San Anselmo, Larkspur and San Rafael.
