This comfortable home is located across the street from the beautiful Bolinas Lagoon as it empties from Mt Tamalpais into the Pacific Ocean just a short block away. Nestled below a wooded and private hillside this Mediterranean style house is set behind a large hedge hidden from the street. A great base for bird watching, mountain biking, hiking, surfing, kayaking (walk across the street to put in at the small dock), or mosey down the block to the beach to look for seashells, watch the seals play in the surf or make a sandcastle. Known for locally grown/ raised organic food and freshly caught fish, and with a cafe, museum and Wildlife Gallery with our local bird expert down the street, you have sophisticated city amenities in a small beach town. One of only a handful of homes located in this historic part of downtown where the fishing boats still come in on the tides, it is a great spot for fun, family gatherings, or quiet reflective moments.
more: The house is one of two structures on the property. There is also a small cottage at the rear of the property occupied by a part-time tenant/caretaker. However, the yard, parking area, etc. is for the exclusive use of guests. The backyard has a picnic table + several outdoor tables and a park like feeling facing the wooded hillside. Sheltered from the wind with great afternoon sun and with lots of hummingbird visitors, it is a great spot for sharing meals or just hanging out.
We have owned the property since 1986, live part time in the house since our retirement in 2008 and also offer it as a vacation rental. Because we spend a great deal of time in the house it has many personal touches.
