Overview

About the property

Spacious Multi-Level Home One Block From Downtown!

This chic and sophisticated multi-level property is conveniently located on one of downtown Mill Valley's most charming and coveted streets. A sleek yet cozy home, this 2014 custom-built residence boasts an expansive, private outdoor space (back and side lawns, a hot tub, a BBQ, and several decks on a 6,500 square foot lot) perfect for entertaining, all in a quaint neighborhood just around the corner from the heart of downtown's shops, the Depot Bookstore, restaurants, cafes, theaters and the award-winning library.

This 2,500 square foot Modern Craftsman-style home is spacious and comfortable. The sun-drenched open-style floor plan features four bedrooms, four baths, a separate studio, indoor/outdoor accessibility from almost every room, high ceilings, wide-plank hardwood floors, a chef's kitchen, multiple dining areas (a dining table, counter seating, and island seating), and a three-sided Art Nouveau fireplace.

The spacious kitchen offers a rare Kinawa Satin granite countertop and zinc counter accent, plus an imported Italian gas range, wine refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, and stainless steel appliances. The adjoining deck has a bird's eye view of the yard below, rolling hillsides, and the quaint details of the picturesque hamlet of downtown Mill Valley, located 10 minutes north of San Francisco's iconic Golden Gate Bridge.

The four bedrooms are located downstairs. The master bedroom features a four-poster bed, en suite bathroom with a luxurious rain shower and deep soaking tub, walk-in closets, and a private deck. There is an additional full bath and three guest bedrooms, each opening out to a deck and lawn, offering a perfect flow for entertaining and family activities.

The stacked washer/dryer is also located on the lower level. Sleeping Occupancy: 8 guests maximum.

The third bath is a half-bath for guests and is located conveniently off the living room upstairs. The fourth bath, a half-bath, is located in the studio (see details below).

There is one TV, in the living room. A $20 AppleTV credit is reserved for the duration of each guest stay (log in with your AppleTV account, let us know, and we'll credit your VRBO payment $20). No stereo system, no gate clicker.

The main outdoor space is highlighted by a patio with couches and dining table for six under bistro lights and a giant Redwood tree, a hot tub hugged by bamboo, and a custom water feature ideal for relaxing and entertaining. The studio includes a bathroom (toilet, sink, mini fridge) and is a sweet spot to unwind with a good book and a glass of wine.

Despite being located in downtown Mill Valley, the home feels very private. In the front, there is a custom-made automated steel passenger gate that opens onto a private courtyard with room for two cars, spacious storage lockers perfect for bikes, outdoor equipment, or children's necessities.

Walk Score of 90 out of 100. This location is a Walker’s Paradise so daily errands do not require a car.

Nearby parks include Old Mill Park, Old Mill Park and Norris Memorial Park.

This spacious and inviting home welcomes locals, travelers, families, and dog owners (with an additional pet deposit) and is available for a minimum of three nights, with discounts applied to weekly and monthly rentals.

Fantastic retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Decided to go to the Bay Area for a vacation with extended family and this home was perfect! We wanted the North Bay location so that we had easy access to the city, wine country, Muir Woods, etc. I visited Mill Valley once before and wanted to stay here as the town itself is super quaint and cute. Adrienne was great in answering my questions prior to booking and very professional.

Now that my trip is over, I wish I could go back. I have to admit this home is spectacular! Not only for the decor, design, flow of the home....but I didn't realize how great the location is. Easy short walk to the charming downtown area where we found easy access to restaurants, shops, coffee, etc. This home was also very clean and had nice touches for guests upon arrival (ie robes, slippers, fresh flowers).

Will definitely want to stay here again!

Wow and double wow

  • 5 of 5

We spent four amazing days here around the time of my daughter's wedding at Old Mill Park , and it was the perfect place to gather and chill out, eat, work (we arranged the wedding flowers on the huge kitchen island), rest, and repair. Beautiful and bright and open and classy and private and immaculate, and SO CLOSE to everything in town. It offered the best of "home," personal without you feeling you were somehow invading someone's residence, which can sometimes be the case. The artwork---chandeliers, photos -- was lovely.The hospitality gestures (staples in the larder; extra toothbrushes, shampoo, etc., in the bathrooms, plenty of paper goods, robes in the bedrooms, condiments in the fridge, board games in the living room) were particularly welcome, whether we used them or not, and made us feel like guests in the best sense. The design of the house and grounds is brilliant (though early risers are cautioned that making coffee may awaken those in the master suite downstairs!), and a stepstool would be great to reach a few of the high kitchen shelves. And yes, that afternoon sun can heat the upstairs up on a rare hot summer day (some blinds on those magnificent sliding glass doors might be a practical, if unaesthetic, fix), but the casement windows catch the breezes. Concierge Adrienne was extremely responsive and helpful and was flexible whenever possible. The whole vibe here was just terrific, and though I wouldn't trade a second of that beautiful wedding and the events surrounding it, I wish we'd had more time to savor the house and garden and hot tub and even the little zen guesthouse. Hoping for a next time. A truly perfect place.

beautiful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two kids and I had a wonderful stay at this house in Mill Valley. It's a great location just a block away from the Main Street where there are restaurants and shops. House was clean, spacious and a zen delight.

We loved the location of the house but

  • 3 of 5

We were disappointed upon arrival to learn the house only has 2 full baths as the listing states there are 3.5 baths and have suggested to the concierge that this be clarified. Also only one TV in the house as well. The house is in a great location only steps from the cute shops and restaurants of Mill Valley. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need as well.

Immaculate and super spacious!

  • 5 of 5

This home is so much more than we expected, the photos do not do it justice. We are not normally "modern style" people, but we were so pleased with the floor plan and design of this home, everything is top notch quality from the high end appliances to the detailed finishes. We loved that there was plenty of space for our family to gather and yet lots of little garden hideaways to have privacy from each other if we wanted. It was a very important event for our family, my daughter's wedding, and we chose this home because it was in easy walking distance to her venue at the OAC. She was so pleased with this house that she and her two maids of honor opted to get ready for the wedding here instead of at the facilities that were offered at the venue. The property manager, Adrienne, was so responsive and helpful...excellent experience, wonderful home.

Spectacular home, true to pictures and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for a family event in Marin County over a long weekend. We cannot say enough about the beauty and functionality of this home. My husband is an architect and we truly appreciated the quality and attention to detail in the design and construction. The layout is very practical with the bedrooms on the lower level, all with doors to the peaceful outdoor spaces, including a fabulous spa! That left the open great room and kitchen area for family get together time. Extremely well equipped kitchen (which my son-in-law chef really appreciated) and everything was easy to find.

Adrienne was extremely easy to communicate with and very responsive. Any questions I had (not many, because she was so informative at the outset) were immediately responded to.

The location is terrific, being able to walk to nearby restaurants, coffee shops and other shopping. It was nice to get to know Mill Valley better - it's a very charming town without being pretentious. Our only regret was that our stay was too short! Would highly recommend this lovely home for couples, families or a girlfriend getaways type of thing. It would also be great for an executive retreat.
