Stunning Estate in Bolinas
A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity awaits to own a breathtaking Bolinas beachfront residence with an unrivaled Bay Area history! This 4 bedroom, 4 bath home is extraordinary, from its prime oceanside location to its vibrant storied past. Grace Slick and Jerry Garcia’s shared jam sessions reverberated through these walls and bestowed a legendary imprint on two of San Francisco’s most revered music icons. Adding to its prestigious pedigree is Susie Tompkins Buell’s family’s ownership in the 1960s. The co-founder of Esprit de Corp, and The North Face turned environmental activist has noted how living here profoundly impacted her love of nature. Past iterations include an array of uses, from a 1920s bathhouse, tea house, and casino to a ballroom, all adding to its historic appeal. A distinctive stone entry archway with keystone, crafted by artisan Doug Bryant of A Lost Art Stonework, announces the unique splendor of this home. The extensive lot offers 300 linear feet that front the coast, enhancing the exclusivity of this location. Step out into your backyard of sandy shoreside for immediate access to surf, swim, or sun. The main living area features ample space for relaxing, a centerpiece fireplace, and plentiful windows with ocean views that provide a zen background. The shingle-clad façade, striking wood beam cathedral ceilings with exposed trusses, wood paneling, and the warmth of the hardwood floors presents a refined yet relaxed beach house ambiance. The dining area and chef’s kitchen are wrapped in windows, ensuring memorable meal-making and dining experiences. The culinary hub boasts black granite counters and island/dining bars, honey-hued wood cabinetry, a farmhouse sink, premium stainless steel appliances, a 6-burner gas range with a grill/ double oven, and stainless steel hood. An adjoining sitting area opens out to a deck that extends across the back and looks out over Bolinas Bay. The multi-level limestone patios act as an extension of the interior, creating the ultimate California indoor/outdoor lifestyle. The lower level has a media room with an oversized wet bar to entertain while watching favorite films, sports, or television shows. All three lower level ensuite bedrooms boast ocean vistas, ensuite baths, walk-in showers, and a soaking tub with transcendent views. There is also a sauna located on the lower level. As an homage to her rock and roll heritage, Grace Slick designed a truly spectacular guitar-shaped pool during her ownership. The gold and copper mosaic tiles shimmer in the sunshine, and the sun and moon motifs dazzle with their colorful patterns. A bronze dolphin by Marin sculptor Peter Bishop Allen appears to be rising from the water, poised in a permanent expression of elation. A level lawn is ideal for various activities and adds to the exceptional exterior spaces. Bolinas is renowned for its enchantingly individualistic residents and understated living. Galleries, pubs, live music, and organic food markets are all within close proximity. There is incredible bird watching at the Bolinas Lagoon, also designated a “Wetland of International Significance.” Bolinas is only one hour north of San Francisco and southwest of the Wine Country. The seller is open to offers that involve fractional ownership, co-ownership, or co-development of the property. The seller is offering a buyer broker commission.
Charming Cottage Home - Spectacular Views
Ideally located on a secluded bluff in Bolinas, this beautifully remodeled seaside cottage overlooking Bolinas Bay & Bolinas Ridge was originally built in 1929 and fully updated with today's modern fit and finishes. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and sits on a 6,040 sqft lot on a secluded street within a minutes walk to the beach and the town of Bolinas. For families, the downstairs level provides a second living room/media room along with a six bed bunk room and adjoining bathroom with a two stall shower, restrooms and custom metal lockers for a full "kid's" locker room experience. With expansive wrap around outdoor decks and a beautifully landscaped garden, the indoor/outdoor flow forever presents a daily challenge between the kinetic activities of surfing, hiking and biking on the outside or the tranquil pursuits of cooking, reading and napping on the inside. Of course, that’s when the cottage is not being photographed for home decor magazines and retailers. The home has a permitted vacation license with Marin County.
Spacious Retreat in Bolinas
A distinctive seaside family resort, vibrant after recent rejuvenation. Two homes and two studios sheltered on a private 3-acre country estate. Tucked in a hidden corner of Pt Reyes National Seashore just 25 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge, where there’s breathing room and a secret path to the beach. A hideaway that accommodates several generations at once with six large bedrooms spread out over a main home, guest house and bunkhouse. The setting is rare, with two entire boundary lines bordering parkland. Ample size and level topography are highly valued in this self-sufficient hamlet where residents like to raise their own food and fiber. Developed by a premier builder of iconic mid-century architecture, structures were sited privately in natural landscape. An expansive lawn spreads from one end to the other, outlined by flowering shrubs and windbreak trees. The western horizon, dotted by the legendary Farallon Islands, appears vivid blue from the main house as the sun strikes the ocean before noon. From the park edge of the parcel it’s an easy walk to the shore.
