As one travels through life, there are few instances that are both compelling and memorable. Within a timeless aura, surrounded by natural light and beauty and a pure, absolute sensation of pleasure, you have arrived.
Nestled in the hills of west Marin just outside the charming town of Nicasio is the truly serene approximate 48-acre enclave, 1220 Nicasio Valley Road.
Entering the gated property you are greeted by a horse facility complete with a 70-foot round pen, five enclosed stalls, and paddocks, a barn and expanse of pasture land.
Meandering down the quarter mile driveway you are enveloped in a private valley reminiscent of a healing refuge with a variety of wildlife that intermittingly visit the terrain including deer, fox, coyote, bobcat, and owl.
The main house is approximately 4,569 square feet and is comprised of three buildings connected by a crescent shaped hallway and exterior patios. A gated enclosure in the front of the home highlights a spacious lawn and gardens, an in-ground pool, 8 seat hot tub and fully equipped approximate 700 square foot guest house. There is also an enclosed aviary, dog run, conversation seating area and the bubbling sounds of a seasonal creek.
The casual contemporary styled main residence has three en suite bedrooms plus a guest bath all on the main level.
Upon entering you are drawn down a wide slate hallway to the expansive living and dining rooms.
The living/dining great room features vaulted ceilings, chestnut hardwood floors, and a wood-burning fireplace. Both rooms open onto the rear bluestone patio and entertaining area featuring a koi pond and fire pit.
The recently remodeled chef's kitchen boasts a center island, new cabinetry and granite countertops, a 6 burner gas range, and double convection ovens.
The romantic master bedroom suite features a skylight that filters the sunlight and a wood-burning fireplace. A newly designed and expanded master bathroom including a European made tub, a steam shower, Italian porcelain floors and double walk in closets. French doors open to a sunny private deck and hot tub.
Above the master suite connected by a separate staircase are a private office and sitting area boasting tranquil views of both sides of the compound.
The two additional large, inviting bedrooms are separately placed, one of which opens onto the patio.
There are several scenic hiking trails within the expansive property, with one circling at the highest position to include a bucolic view of Mt. Tamalpais.
An expansively engineered cave and interior wine cellar within easy trail walking is the ideal place to hold an unforgettable evening while the meditative fire pit is sure to inspire one's limitless imagination and harmonious connectivity with nature.
