The home sits in the idyllic town of Sausalito - half-way between San Francisco and Wine Country (Napa, Sonoma, etc.). With 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms has views of the San Francisco bay & Mount Tamalpais from the open-concept kitchen, livingroom and backyard patios. There are 3 decks and an upper patio with - perfect for sipping a glass of wine after an adventurous day or get up early with a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise over Angel Island. The master bedroom operates as a private retreat off the back of the house with ensuite bathroom (with 6-headed shower and soaking tub), sitting area and backyard access.

There are plenty of parks and playgrounds all over Sausalito within walking distance, including 2 beautiful new playgrounds for kids under 6 within half a mile. For older kids, there's Stand-Up Paddleboard or Kayak rentals in Sausalito and a short driver to Stinson Beach for surf lessons/board rentals. The whole family can hike the Marin Headlands or walk amongst the towering old growth redwoods in Muir Woods. The house itself is equipped with toys for kids 6 months - 99 years.

There is a great grocery store about 6 blocks away called Mollie Stone’s, selling organic and local options. Among very many child-friendly attractions nearby, kids can watch sea otters bob in and out of the water at Dunphe Park, a 5-minute drive away, and Golden Gate Recreational Area has hiking trails starting 5 minutes’ drive away as well.

Style Notes

This stunning, light-filled home includes Mid Century modern detailing, large family living spaces and stunning views over San Francisco Bay, Angel Island and Belvedere, and towards Mount Tamalpais as well. Walls display graphic art, greenery and playful items, especially in the children’s bedroom. We love the landscaped back garden, the sophisticated bathrooms and the space and light throughout.
