Enjoy your own two story house on the edge of a quail reserve, located one block from the Bolinas Beach and one block from quaint Bolinas Village near the shops. Charming cozy rustic redwood cottage with old fashioned arched windows, unique staircase to views of Bolinas Ridge. Downstairs floor plan has one bedroom, handmade stone hearth, old fashioned kitchen with gas stove, full claw foot tub bath with lounge. Truly like entering a fairy tale. This house is cozy and rustic and full of spirit. We have a little Japanese hot tub outdoors in the back to soak in,. Upstairs is warm with a European feel, light & airy. Enjoy afternoon sun on an enclosed porch bedroom cuddling up to read. The house has lots of windows,skylights, cubbies, and wooden carvings leading out onto a deck to relax privately. There is also a tiny garden with a lookout from a Balinese window. It is especially embracing  on cold nights with the stone hearth we built and handmade felt rugs,like entering another era and place altogether. In the evenings you can walk up the road a little for a view of San Francisco, Stinson Beach, and the little boats fishing in the Bolinas Bay.


You can also cook a meal to enjoy with guests and have them stay over. The house has  a  relaxing atmosphere that envelopes you and all your guests. The upstairs loft/second story overlooks the floor below if you need to be private but aware of your children or friends. You can also curtain it off to make two separate units. It is the home of an international sculptural costume artist,Sha Sha Higby, scroll down below to see more pictures at the web sight link. Two minutes from Bolinas' coastal village downtown, which includes two restaurants, the oldest saloon in West Marin, the fabulous Bolinas Museum, and an active community center with music,movies,and performances.

Nestled between three National Natural Wildlife parks, it is great place to spend the day hiking in Mount Tamalpais and Muir Woods State Parks, Pt. Reyes National Seashore.
