Why Sally chose The Bay Area

This home was designed for the owners by renowned architect Jim Campe, a leader in sustainable building practices who studied under and later taught and worked with Sim Van Der Ryn.

What makes this house unique

Fox Ridge is a peaceful and versatile space that has successfully hosted family gatherings, reunions of old friends, and retreats, strategy sessions, and workshops for organizations. Writers, artists, and visionaries of all kinds find plenty of space for individual work, but can also come together in larger meetings and breakout sessions. The Inverness Ridge setting is tranquil, but very close to the restaurants, shops, galleries, and markets of Point Reyes Station, Olema, and Inverness. Hikers can acess some of the Point Reyes National Seashore trails right from the front door. Other nearby state and county parks offer visitors lovely walking trails (a few wheelchair accessible) to explore the Tomales Bay Ecological Reserve, Papermill Creek, and redwood forests. Foodies and locavores will delight in the opportunity to tour artisanal cheese makers, picnic at the Drake's Bay Oyster Company, and enjoy the range-fed meats at Marin Sun Farms.

This is a perfect gathering place for extended family with kids or a small group of friends. It is light-filled, spacious yet cozy with various seating areas, with a well-equipped, open kitchen. There are games, books, window seats, and great views. We are a group of 6 women who use this yearly as a retreat.

Reviewer Comments:

This house was truly exceptional—the comfort of a home away from home with the feeling of a respite. It exceeded expectations in every way—it was immaculate and extremely well-appointed for our group, with a deep bench of cooking supplies and nice linens. I'm vying for the family to adopt me! At the very least I hope to be able to return again and again.

Beautiful home, photos do not do it justice. The beautiful views fall into the house through all of the large windows. We watched sunrises off the patios. Fantastic well-equipped kitchen where we cooked for our family of 8 adults from scratch, after visiting the fantastic farmers market. Beautifully located, one road down from the road out to Limatour Beach, an 8 mile drive with beautiful views and great walking on the ocean beach. A mile from Point Reyes after negotiating the drive up the hill. Private, quiet, secluded with fresh mountain & sea air.

The house was fantastic; very roomy, light, with magnificent views of Tomales Bay and the vast Pt. Reyes wilderness. The special vase of sunflowers was very thoughtful, along with the detailed directions and suggestions for our stay. The kitchen is fully stocked and well labeled making it easy to make delicious meals. We all want to return the following year.
