Welcome to your local Muir Beach modern home and Muir Beach real estate resource. Muir Beach is the first stop over the mountain as you head west from Mill Valley. Located on Highway 1, it is a small town with lots of modern architecture; most of the homes have that woodsy-seashore feel that seems to be unique to northern California. With high beamed ceilings, angular lines, graying redwood siding, and large picture windows to take in the views, the homes have a similar architectural look to the homes found in Sea Ranch, which is a few miles north.

You can find the work of architect Jerry Kler in Muir Beach. Kler has collaborated in both new construction and remodels of private homes in the area. Another architect of note is Sim Van der Ryn, an internationally recognized leader in sustainable development and green architecture. In the 1970's and 80's Van der Ryn Architects worked with the Green Gulch Zen Center in Muir Beach and created several buildings that were sensitively designed to minimize the physical and visual impact on the land. All three buildings developed by Van der Ryn express a simplicity and elegance that reflects the philosophy of the Zen Center's Asian origins.
Most homes in Muir Beach are not actually on the beach, but are in the hills looking over the Pacific Ocean. The greatest growth in the area occurred during the 1960's and 70's, as people began to recognize the advantage of having a home in close proximity to the conveniences of modern life, but wanted a rural retreat. Homes in Muir Beach rarely come on to the market, and when they do, you will be hard pressed to find one for under $1M.
