A private getaway unlike any other! Stunning, contemporary solar home on 11 acres in northern San Rafael. 3bd + 2 bonus rooms. Exceptional maintenance with almost $800K in upgrades in the past 13 years. Spectacular swimming pool and spa are just steps from the primary suite. Oversized and abundant windows frame sweeping views and colorful sunsets. The property is on a private road bordering China Camp open space, yet it’s less than 10 minutes from Highway 101.

Easy 2-story floor plan with the main living areas upstairs and the bedrooms downstairs. Spacious kitchen with center island opens to the family room with pellet stove. There’s an intimate flagstone patio w/retractable awning for outdoor dining, and the indoor-outdoor flow is remarkable: the home has a dozen doors that access the outside! A meandering path leads to 2 upper lawn areas and the back yard is fully fenced.

Owned solar panels for low electricity bills plus new solar panels for pool heat. New AC and heating system. 2-car garage and large parking deck. Excellent storage including naturally cool wine room plus an under-house dry storage room. Close to hiking trails and Marin Civic Center.
