Why LouAnn chose The Bay Area

This property is such a surprise. You can't imagine it until you walk to the private space what the house hides.. We just love it.

What makes this studio unique

This is like an oasis from the hustle and bustle yet close to it. Most people here don't even know this area exists and when they walk to the back garden,and estuary usually the comments are oh is beautiful, or wow, or I never knew this was here. It's a surprise when you enter

I recently stayed in the master suite for a week. I came to San Rafael for a training. It is close to restaurants and a peaceful, quaint setting. I was quite impressed with the size and comfort that the master suite afforded. The suite also includes some kitchen appliances. The grounds are well kept and have a relaxing feel with spectacular sunset views.
