A nature lover’s dream, 481 Cascade Drive is nestled among majestic redwoods while still enjoying plenty of sunlight. Spacious decks extend the living space beyond the home’s exterior walls, creating an effortless indoor/outdoor flow.
Stepping out the door is literally like stepping into a park with access to the Tenderfoot Trail directly behind the house, Cascade Falls just down the road and the soothing sounds of Cascade Creek heard from both inside and outside the home.
Surrounded by nature but located just minutes from award-winning schools and downtown Mill Valley with an easy San Francisco commute.
The spacious living room is open to the dining area and kitchen and features one gas and one wood-burning fireplace, along with wide-plank wood floors, recessed lighting and views of the majestic redwoods and Cascade creek below. It opens out to an inviting deck and garden ideal for entertaining and dining al fresco. There is also an office conveniently located just off the living room.
The remodeled kitchen is open to the dining area and the living room offering views of the redwoods. It features stainless appliances, a glass tile backsplash, stone countertops and custom cabinetry.
The large, private deck located on the front side of the home, and a second deck off the back of the home extend the living space beyond the home’s exterior walls. They serve as outdoor “rooms,” surrounded by nature and offering an ideal spot for dining al fresco, entertaining guests or relaxation among the serenity of the majestic redwoods.
The spacious master suite is a retreat unto itself with walls of glass looking out to the redwoods and the creek below. It boasts its own private seating/TV area, large walk-in closet and a remodeled ensuite bathroom with dual sinks and a large walk-in shower with glass surround.
It is the perfect place to be lulled to sleep by the calming sounds of Cascade Creek.
481 Cascade Drive is in one of Marin County’s award-winning school districts. Mill Valley is just minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge and is an ideal commute location for those working in the city. Check out my Marin Schools Guide here.
Just ten minutes north of San Francisco, Mill Valley is nestled below majestic Mt. Tamalpais and is reminiscent of a picturesque European village with its charming downtown center and natural beauty. Surrounded by national parks, including Muir Woods, Mill Valley’s lush landscape of hills and canyons are a favorite place for residents and visitors who enjoy hiking, mountain biking, walking and running.
The history of Mill Valley began with John Reed. Subsequent to the acquisition of a large land grant in 1834, Reed built a sawmill in 1836 on Cascade Creek to provide wood for the construction of his home. The mill, which gave Mill Valley its name, is now a welcoming retail village and stands among the towering redwoods in Old Mill Park, a few blocks from downtown.
Downtown activities center around Lytton Square, where people gather for coffee at the Depot Bookstore & Café , a game of chess in the square or meeting up with family and friends in one of the fashionable boutiques or restaurants that fill the downtown area.
