Reminiscent of a bygone era, The Carriage House, built in 1895 has the perfect blend of old world charm with modern amenities. This majestic compound nestled among mature trees and rose bushes is an elegant retreat that is merely steps away from downtown Mill Valley. The main floor has a grand living room with tall ceilings and enough space for lounging, dining and entertaining. The remodeled kitchen has stainless steel appliances, walnut wood floors and plenty of counter top space and cabinetry. Also on the main level is an oversized family room that is ideal for movie nights or homeschooling or a home office and there is an adjacent full bathroom for added versatility for this space. There is also 1 bedroom with a cozy fireplace and 1 additional en-suite bathroom on the main floor. Upstairs is 2nd large bedroom with french doors leading out to a lovely private deck and patio that is surrounded by mature vegetation. The master suite has tall ceilings built-in cabinetry and a luxurious bathroom with soaking Jacuzzi tub with built-in tv for soaking and watching your favorite soaps and a steam shower and dual vanity. There is a separate studio space that would be a great art studio or space for a long term guest or au-pair that has access to a 4th bathroom. Just off the studio is a lovely gravel patio and water fountain for relaxing with a book or cup of coffee. With several storage spaces and 1 car garage this charming compound has plenty of space for families to cohabitate as we spend more time at home now, while providing easy access to many local shops, cafes, parks and restaurants to take advantage of the Marin lifestyle.
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.
