TOMALES BAY COTTAGE
So close yet a world away… this dream luxury waterfront home is located along a gorgeous stretch of Tomales Bay backed by Marin’s idyllic rolling hills. It offers stunning natural beauty and tranquil waterfront living.
Tasteful and refined this designer home is a celebration of natural light and spectacular views of the Bay. The interior features 3 bedrooms with open plan living. Dining, kitchen and deck areas are ideal for entertaining or as a rejuvenating retreat. The clean, contemporary decor reflects California coastal living at its best -relaxing comfortable and elegant.
Curl up in the window seats to watch the changing light on the Bay. Or dine on the dock at sunset and watch cormorants dive for their own dinners. The private beach, wraparound deck and two-level dock offer access to the water anyway you please. The lush private garden of flowering perennials and textured landscaping provides year ‘round color and interest.
After a day of hiking, kayaking or exploring the area, relax your muscles in the hot tub and maybe go for a quick cold plunge in the bay and back to the hot tub again. The outdoor shower makes it easy to rinse off before and after.
Just an hour’s drive from the Golden Gate Bridge and Wine Country, it’s a short stroll to Tony’s Seafood, Hog Island Oyster Company, the Marshall Store and the Boat Works. Under half an hour to the charm and exclusive eateries of Point Reyes Station, Tomales, Dillon Beach, Freestone, Occidental and Bodega Bay. Bike and hike the vast expanse of protected coastline on the trails of Point Reyes National Seashore. Launch kayaks from your own private beach and glide to secret coves on the Bay's western shore. You won’t believe you’re only 50 miles from the urban hub of San Francisco.

What you will love
So close, yet a world away... only an hour from SF, East Bay, and Wine Country.
The perpetual unveiling of new vistas, always changing... all from the comfort of a sunny reading nook.
Watching the sunset every single night, never seeing the same beauty repeated.
Celebrating the change of seasons with so much activity... endless bird migrations marking the seasonal transitions.
Spotting the first baby foxes or quail in the early springtime, watching the hills morph from winter’s barn-swallow brown to a kaleidoscope of spring greens (grasses), purple (lupine), pink (wild sweet peas), golden (poppies).
Keeps all the senses alive: watching, feeling, hearing, smelling...the mercurial wind, pounding waves, or sweet 'slap' of a wave on the sand, hearing the call of wild geese flying south, listening and watching with awe the simultaneous precision and explosion of a feeding frenzy as pelicans and cormorants dive for herring. Spotting the sleek heads of seals as they circle and dive into the schools of fish and feast on the catch.
The ethereal nature of intertwined light and misty fog.
Kayaking across the bay to a picnic on a sunny beach, then gathering wild huckleberries to bring home to make pie.
Privacy or social fun: having outstanding neighbors who give great parties and also respect my private, quiet time.
Nestled between the two best oyster eateries on the planet, a quarter mile in either direction. Harvesting mussels from beneath my dock at low tide and making the freshest-ever Mussels Italiano.
Vibrant, active community of committed volunteers who preserve the best of this historic village.
Fall in love with the house, the vista, and the serenity of the area.
Hiking and biking the extensive trails in the magnificent Point Reyes Seashore.
“The wide-open, picture-perfect spaces" of West Marin include the coastal communities of Stinson Beach and Bolinas; the dairy farms of Olema, Point Reyes Station, Tomales, Marshall and Nicasio; and the forest glens of Lagunitas, San Geronimo, and Woodacre.
Uniting all West Marin communities is a love for the land. That’s not going to change soon, thanks to the efforts of Marin Agricultural Land Trust, an organization dedicated to preserving farmland through voluntary conservation easements.
Outdoor recreation ranges from surfing at Bolinas and Stinson Beach to mountain biking on Mount Tamalpais and the annual Dipsea foot race to Stinson Beach. West Marin is an area of unrivaled natural beauty, one that can lay claim to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Muir Beach State Bark, Stinson Beach State Park, Muir Woods National Monument, and Point Reyes National Seashore.
Of course it’s not all about the outdoors in West Marin. Devotees of inner peace turn to the Green Gulch FarmZen Center in Muir Beach and Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre. And for those who need to feed the belly as well as the soul, Point Reyes Station has become a destination for the locavore movement. The town is home to Marin Sun Farms, purveyor of ethically raised and butchered meat, and Cowgirl Creamery, which makes its award-winning cheeses using organic milk from nearby Straus Family Creamery.
