Agriculture Meets Modern
Inspired by the surrounding environment and historic agricultural landscape, this coastal home was designed and built in 1977 and renovated in 2007 by renowned local architect Jon Fernandez (the architect of the iconic Point Reyes Cowgirl Creamery/Tomales Bay Foods building).
The cedar siding and sharp-angled walls are an abstract reflection of an agricultural barn. The rustic yet modern design continues past the front door. Inside, airy simplicity is combined with warm wood finishes and picture windows to enhance your indoor-outdoor living experience.
Since much of your time may be spent engaging with the great outdoors, once you enter the home you will find a space to store your coats, backpacks, and gear that you used to explore the surrounding park and beaches.
Are you or someone in your group a cook?
You will find a fully equipped gourmet kitchen that is functional and modern. There are ample wine, champagne and water glasses and you’ll eat from artistic vintage earthenware. There are two Thermador ovens, a gas range and dishwasher. Custom cherry-wood cabinetry provides a warm and luxurious feel, while the black granite countertops and island reflect the granite outcrop on which the home is perched. The raised wood table in the breakfast nook is an ideal spot for morning coffee with a long and reflective view up Tomales bay toward hog island.
The dining room sits between the kitchen and great room, surrounded by custom shelving that house original owner-created pottery bowls and platters from which to serve your meals.
In need of time to relax in nature?
The long sofa in the great room invites guests to curl up with a book and take in the spectacular bay, agricultural and parkland views. There is ample seating to gaze at the landscape and bird watch through rows of expansive windows. A wood-burning stove creates a cozy feel while bringing warmth to the coastal evenings.
You may not spend much time indoors, but you’ll be extremely comfortably and surrounded by serene beauty when you do.
Luxurious Starry Starry Nights
The bedrooms are clean and comfortable, with views of the bay’s blue water and surrounding lush green mountains from every bed. Providing for maximum privacy, each bedroom, bathroom and balcony are on separate levels of the home. And each bathroom includes a tub and shower.
The downstairs bathroom includes a soaking tub with glassed walled views of the bay and surrounding landscape. Coastal birds will soar by as you settle into the warmth of the shower and bath.
The master bedroom has a sitting area to enjoy a book or to work in privacy. The second master bedroom is clean and sparse with a comfy, pillowed bed and two end-tables with an adjoining private balcony.
The main-floor bedroom room has the added dramatic yet warm feeling from an angled floor to ceiling cedar lined wall. Magnificent views of the bay and agricultural hills are artistically framed through the windows. This main-floor bedroom doubles as a cozy entertainment room with a flat screen TV on a pivotal arm and a closet filled with board games.
On every level, the home opens onto outdoor decks and large balconies. Metal fencing on the kitchen and master bedroom balconies extends the modern feel, while allowing maximum light, safety, and extended views.
An outdoor garden with a picnic table and adirondack chairs is nestled into a natural small amphitheather-like setting looking overlooking the town of Inverness, the blue water of Tomales bay, as well as agricultural and natural landscapes.
Immersed by natural art on a scenic perch in which to relax while enjoying local wine and cheese. A thoroughly scenic, luxurious and enjoyable escape in nature. A place to relax and refresh all of your senses.
