This 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, +/-2415 sq. foot Craftsman home feels like an old tavern that has been converted into a modern farmhouse with creative fixtures and refined finishes. The large formal living/dining room has dramatic vaulted ceilings with exposed wood beams, skylights, and a cozy fireplace and the ideal layout for family living and entertaining. The stylish but functional kitchen has high-end appliances, a breakfast island, office nook and French doors that spill out onto the spacious backyard. The master suite has lofty ceilings, a cozy fireplace, and private deck with stunning views of Mount Tam. The outdoor space feels like a country home in Provence with abundant rosemary and lavender bushes, manicured hedges, veggie boxes, and a fire-pit and outdoor BBQ and dining area. An idyllic retreat in the heart of Sycamore Park.
Family-friendly Mill Valley is all about schools and sports. Nestled at the foot of Mount Tamalpais, homes in the Marin County city range from 500-square-foot hunter's cabins to multimillion-dollar mansions tucked away on winding, narrow lanes under the redwoods.
Coffee is king in Mill Valley. Downtown, three separate coffee shops do a brisk business. At the Depot, as the sunny town center is called, moms with strollers, kids on tricycles, and teenagers kicking hacky sacks relax in the open-air plaza, which now houses an independent bookstore and cafe. The Depot is also a jumping-off spot for hikers and mountain bikers heading up the slopes of Mount Tamalpais. Nightlife in Mill Valley is anchored by Sweetwater Music Hall, which hosts many well-known musical acts.
As the groomed playing fields at the community center attest, sports are big in Mill Valley, with soccer, baseball, and lacrosse leagues all popular.
