I remember so clearly showing this property to the sellers when they were first-time buyers absolutely set on living in Mill Valley. The look on their faces when I drove them up to the exceptional and treasured San Rafael Highlands neighborhood was priceless and one of utter disbelief. To think that they could have such a beautifully remodeled and sunny 4BR home with idyllic indoor/outdoor flow, high-efficiency HVAC air purifying system with AC, as well as a whole-house water filter and reverse osmosis drinking water filtration system, and such easy access to endless trails, trails that mean everything to ultra-runners like them as well as weekend warriors wanting to drink up all of the free natural beauty Marin has to offer was all it took for them to realize they found what they were looking for. Mill Valley was but a distant memory to them as this was home, offering so much more for so much less. And with easy access to San Anselmo, Sun Valley, San Rafael's vibrant downtown, and Highway 101, the location is tops, the weather ideal, the community tight, and the property one you won't ever want to leave.
