San Francisco Chronicle
Twice a week, The Chronicle features a local home on the market that caught our eye for its architecture, history or character.
Asking price: $1.895 million
Description: Located a half-mile from downtown Mill Valley, this renovated home in Blithedale Canyon sits on a level lot with numerous redwood trees growing in the landscaped backyard. An open kitchen features a center island and built-in table, as well as Sub Zero, Fisher & Paykel and Bosch kitchen appliances. Four sets of French doors provide access to the deck and rear yard from the kitchen and family room, as well as the master bedroom and an additional bedroom. The home also has three skylights, an office and a spacious laundry with ironing center, storage and mechanical room.
Don't miss: A meandering path in the backyard leads to a detached "Zen Tea House" perched beneath the redwoods.
Size: The four-bedroom, 2.5-bath house sits on a 5,600-square-foot lot.
