This newly renovated home in the heart of Mill Valley has it all. There are five bedrooms: 1) in the master, there is a Tempurpedic king-size bed, fireplace, two closets and private deck. Attached is a gorgeous spa bathroom, with soaker tub and shower. The bathroom also has a workout area, with bench, weights and other fitness equipment. 2-4) There are three "kid" bedrooms. Each has a twin bed with a twin trundle bed underneath. These four bedrooms are all located upstairs (see house layout photo) 5) The fifth bedroom is actually part of the den. The bookcase hides a queen-size Murphy bed. Just push aside two bookcases and pull it down. We also have a blow-up queen-size mattress in case you need more places to sleep.
On the home's main level, there is a large, gourmet kitchen. There's a ridiculous amount of counter space, a gas range, double ovens and a walnut-topped prep island. The zinc-topped breakfast island can easily seat nine. There's also a walk-in pantry, Miele coffee machine that can make anything from hot water to cappuccinos, and a gorgeous view from the jewel box windows.
Just off the kitchen is a large living room with TV and baby grand piano. On the other side of the kitchen is the dining room, with vaulted ceilings and a bar area. The dining table easily seats 12 and contains it's own little surprise. Take off the table leaves (carefully and with a friend) to reveal a pool table underneath. Lift the table up on its hydraulic lifts and enjoy a game or two. While you're at it, fully open the rooms two pocket doors for the ultimate in indoor-outdoor living. Just outside the living room is a patio area with gas fireplace.
Tucked behind the dining room is a den that's a perfect hangout spot for kids. There's a TV and a craft table with games and books to entertain. At night, the large bookcase easily converts into a queen-size Murphy bed.
Just off the den is an office space, with four seating spots.
The outside boasts two large yards. The front yard has lots of trees and plants with winding path to connect it all. The backyard is where the real fun is had. There's a hot tub, concrete deck with BBQ and dining table, a large grassy area, and finally a paddle tennis court surrounded with stadium seating. It's a perfect place for kids to ride scooters or roller-skates. We are currently working to build this area (April) but it will be done by the time you come to visit this summer.
The whole house is equipped with a Sonos sound system. Just make sure to download the app on your phone or computer and follow the directions on how to link to the system.
Moving away from the house proper, there is a playground just a few steps above the backyard. And for you trail runners and bicyclists, there is easy access to Mount Tam. While the house is tucked away in a quiet, wooded area, there are a number of amenities, all within walking distance: a Whole Foods market, Joe's Taco Lounge, Swirl ice cream, the 2AM Club (Mill Valley's beloved dive bar) and many other shops and eateries. Mill Valley's downtown is a short 5 minute drive away.
And let's not forget that San Francisco is a short 15-20 minute drive away!!
