Welcome to our architecturally-inspired single family "Tree House" nestled in wooded Fairfax, CA just 40 minutes from San Francisco. Enjoy a peaceful sabbatical in this unique 3 bed, 2 bath home with 1/8 acre natural hillside back yard where deer come to graze (we're located 1/2 block from Deer Park!). Experience the northern Californian ambience as you enter a three-storied redwood home with vaulted wooden ceilings and large windows revealing tree-top level views. Enjoy the cozy wood burning stove, heirloom piano . Heightened views are offered from the spacious living and dining rooms, with ideal layout for entertaining or family activities. Well-equipped kitchen peers out over the back deck and landscape of Bay Trees and. Live Oaks. New stove/oven and dishwasher. Kitchen opens directly into the dining room.

House comes comfortably furnished and carpeted. First floor contains: bathroom with tub, hallway with washer/dryer, one large bedroom/office combination and another smaller bedroom ideal for child or teen. Both rooms have double-paned windows to keep in heat during winter. House stays cool in summer due to hillside location and tree shade.

Second floor is elegant in its layout of living room, dining room, and kitchen, as already described. Direct access to decks from this level.

Third floor contains a separate loft for master bedroom, with wooden ceiling, large closet, bathroom with tub, hillside views = a private refuge at the top of the treehouse!

Property is open on all sides to the natural landscape, without outer fencing. Be prepared for several flights of stairs outside and within the house. Pets are welcome. We love cats and have an outdoor catico for their use on a small deck attached to the dining room with open cat-door access.

Off-street parking for 2 cars is available in the carport at street level. A bike closet is attached to carport for storage. Very quiet and safe street with minimal traffic. The house is ideally located down the block from awesome hiking trails leading to Mt Tam and watershed lakes. It's a ten minute walk to the charming town of Fairfax with cafes, restaurants, movie theater and live music venues. The town is only 21 miles from San Francisco and Berkeley. World class Sonoma/Napa wine country is located just an hour north. Point Reyes National Park is also accessible in under an hour.

No smoking. Residents pay all utilities. Prefer rental insurance.
