minutes from downtown Fairfax, resides Vista Del Corazon. Secluded from
the world behind a private gate yet adjacent to world class hiking and
mountain biking trails, this serene vacation home offers a superb blend
of luxury living, and sun drenched peaceful seclusion within an hour of
most Bay Area work locations and attractions.
As you enter the
main house, you are immediately greeted by high, vaulted ceilings and
rich, oak planked flooring throughout. The flow created by its open
floor plan creates a sense of unity and spaciousness. A sizable, chef’s
kitchen with high-end appliances acts as the canvas needed to craft your
culinary creations for your private...
Streets for People!

For an entire day Bolinas Avenue is closed to cars... People rock! Ride your bike to the event and take advantage for the bike valet parking service at Transit Alley (located next to Gestalt Haus). Learn how to load your bike onto the Marin Transit buses. Kids! Come out and bring your bike, decorate it, and and win some Scoop Ice Cream! Come ride the stationary bike and power up the blender for your personal smoothie! Check out the local shops (hint: there are some new groovy stores on Bolinas Ave.) All your favorite local green organizations will be out with fun games and things to do.
2016 has proven to be an unusual year for the Marin real estate market. With the equity markets in turmoil over the exit of Britain from the EU (and the resignation of their Prime Minister), there will be a delay in U.S. interest rate hikes for the foreseeable future.
While that bodes well for our real estate market, the free fall of equities needs to be contained lest we see a fallout in real estate prices come this fall when bonuses are paid.
So many of our buyers rely on the benefit of their equity position for their down payment that Marin is likely to see a home price correction unless the international market corrects itself and fast.
Locally, we are certain to have continual expansion of tech companies and a continued inflow of top-level employees to our region. Thus, a need for homes and quality schools. All of which won’t change over the next year.
The demand for Marin housing has sustained positive levels of growth for over four years now. However, I anticipate flat...
Starting on June 30th and running to July 4th is the 75th Marin County Fair in San Rafael.I love the fair! Especially the bands that play outdoors.
This year there is also the Global Marketplace, plus the usual art, photography, and a fireworks display every night! Another favorite of mine are the 4-H farm animal competitions. My kids gravitate towards the rides but I think it is more about hanging out with their friends if truth be told
Global Marketplace & Competitions
Showcasing some of the best local and global products and services is the Global Marketplace. Rules are set in place for each vendor to allow the Marin Fair to continue being the “Greenest County Fair on Earth,” such as using biodegradable or reusable bags and serving food samples in compostable containers. A Global Marketplace...
If you haven't been before, I highly recommend that you attend this iconic festival. Each year brings out the neighborhoods competing for the prize of "Best Float" during the parade that kicks off the festival Saturday morning at 10 am. There is also a great sub festival called, Ecofest that is held up at the Pavillion. Lots of eco product booths and an organic wine bar. You won't want to miss the multiple stages with different bands, too. Here is the site directly. Fairfaxfestival.com
Prices increased here in "the Hollow" even as inventory decreased.
This past month 1359 Butterfield sold for $3,300,000 which is a record for this part of the 'hood'. There were two offers.
Shortly,1360 Butterfield is going to come on the market for $2,900,000. It was purchased last year for $,1515,000 and is now rolling out with added square footage and a whole new look. Think: Restoration Hardware meets Sunset Magazine. (Let me know if you want a sneak peak.)
As of this writing only three homes have sold in Sleepy Hollow since the first of the year. By this time last yeear, six homes had sold. This is the story all over Marin right now. Inventory has been down, sales have been down and prices were trending up. I say "were" because while homes are selling for record high prices both in the Hollow and elsewhere, there is a feeling here in Marin that prices are on the verge of correcting. In the past seven days, 20 homes had their prices reduced.
Case in point, 71...
Petaluma is hot these days. The train is coming this year. Downtown is vibrant. The restaurants rival the wine country but are significantly less expensive.
I have a condominium off North McDowell Blvd on the Eastside. Check out the virtual tour at: 124 Park Place 3-D Tour
It has a new kitchen and bath. There are three bedrooms and the master is quite large with a walk in closet. There is both a living room AND a den. Park Place is sunny, clean and best of all QUIET considering its proximity to East Washington and the 101. The courtyard in the back is a small sanctuary with a mediterreanean feel to it and a side gate onto the front. Low HOAs.
Come see it Sunday April 3 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. or call me for a private tour: Anastasia at 415-302-4123.
