One of the main draws of Mill Valley is its proximity to the hiking and biking trails of Muir Woods National Monument: The park’s visitor center is about 15 minutes from this house by car. Highway 1 runs through the park toward the Pacific Ocean, and Muir Beach is just 20 minutes away.
Size: 3,198 square feet
Price per square foot: $1,249
Indoors: This house is spread out over four levels, with an elevator running from the street level to the primary bedroom suite at the top.
The main entrance is up one flight of outdoor stairs, with a glass door that opens to a foyer with gray hardwood floors. Two bedrooms are on this floor, off the main hallway; they share a bathroom with a combination tub and shower. Up half a flight of stairs is a third guest room with an en suite bathroom and its own balcony.
Up another flight of stairs (or a short trip on the elevator) is the main living area, laid out in an open-plan style. Nearest the stairs is a sitting area with a fireplace and glass doors that open to a balcony with forest views.
At the other end of this floor is the kitchen, rendered in gray and white tones like the rest of the house. A Viking range sits in front of a glossy, gray-tile backsplash, and stainless-steel pendant lights hang over the center island.
The primary suite occupies the entire floor above. The bedroom has an attached office, a large private balcony looking out over the treetops and a bathroom with a deep soaking tub set beneath a large window.
Outdoor space: In addition to the balconies, each large enough to hold several chairs, there are two flat outdoor spaces landscaped with drought-tolerant plants. One, to the side of the house, is large enough for a dining table and barbecue; the other is higher up on the property, with room for chairs and a firepit. The garage holds two cars.
Taxes: $49,932 (estimated)
