Built in 1924, this Mill Valley home has been renovated over the years, with fabulous additions and updates, all of which add up to a spectacular abode that feels like one big, endless, chic retreat.
Located at 388 South Morning Sun Avenue (even the street name sounds relaxing), this house comes with three beds and two baths. One of those bedrooms, however, has its own private-ish setup, replete with a second kitchen, living room, and bath. An indoor in-law, if you will. (Perfect for house guests, Airbnb-ers, a family with a brooding teen in need of space, or a couple going through, say, an acrimonious divorce. The options are endless.)
Brass tacks, this place is stunning. Vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, exposes beams. The ample amount of windows, some reaching from floor to ceiling, allow maximum views of the arboreal nature scenes lurking outside (the place is surrounding by trees and, presumably, wildlife), while letting in heaps of natural diffused light.
The home could benefit from a decent, albeit not extensive, renovation. The carpet, for example, should be the first to go. Otherwise, a lovely, very California house.
Last sold in 2001 for $885,000, it’s now asking $1,249,000.
