About The Owner

I'm a retired attorney and I've lived in and loved this beautiful piece of heaven for over 40 years. I'm the second owner of the property, originally built as a summer home in 1922. It is described in a book entitled 'Larkspur, Past and Present.'

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1969

Why The Owner chose The Bay Area

I decided to turn the garage with adjoining bedroom and bath into a guest house recently because it seemed such an ideal spot for a get-a-way; close to restaurants and shopping and yet very secluded.

What makes this cottage unique

There are redwood trees planted by the original owner in 1922. The architect, a student of Maybeck, created a craftsmen gem in the main house and that character carries into the guest cottage which is tastefully decorated with craftsman leaded light fixtures and oil paintings by various artists. It is very comfortable and relaxing.

This exquisitely rennovated cottage is indeed surrounded by huge mossy oaks and magestic redwoods.

I invited five friends over to dinner after finding the best grocery stores and believe me, this area is loaded with gourmet treats. They thought the cottage was enchanting. We had a lovely evening. My favorite is the bedroom with the four poster bed that seems ready to leap into the forest to follow the crows way up the hidden hills.The people that own the little house are delightful too. See if you can get them to take to to a Saturday afternoon ukulele jam session at the Sleeping Lady in Farfax. It is such fun. Thia is a truly lovely beautiful home. I enjoyed my stay here very much.
