If you've ever dreamed of living in a tree house, this is the property for you! The serene 1.2 acre lot is private, wooded, and whimsical, yet the interior of the house receives abundant natural light through expansive windows and one-of-a-kind skylights. This special property boasts two seasonal creeks, several beautiful gardens, and even a custom-built kids play structure amongst the trees. The much-loved family home has had only one set of owners, whose original design and artistic touches can be seen throughout, from hand-laid mosaic tile designs to hand-crafted interior wood finishes and custom-built cabinets. Most rooms offer panoramic views of the surrounding hills, and the iconic golden spire of the Marin County Civic Center is visible from the living room. The lower level of the house is not counted in the square footage and cannot be accessed from the interior of the home, but has plumbing and electricity and may offer an opportunity for extra living space (buyer to verify). The peaceful Los Ranchitos location feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of life, yet it offers easy access to the 101 and downtown San Rafael. Enjoy the home's original character as-is, or make improvements over time to modernize and suit your personal taste.
