Great bathrooms, including the marble-floored master-bath with dual-head shower and large soaking-tub.

Open ceilings with massive wood beams.

The fireplace.

Massive 1000 sq ft garage/ shop with 12’ ceilings -primarily used as an art/woodworking studio, but could also house 4 cars, + storage.

Serene, quiet, end of the road.

Beautiful views – particularly the 150’ waterfall across the canyon from the Master Bedroom!

Energy efficiency – with smart architectural design by Alex Riley, and radiant heat throughout.

The San Geronimo Valley is known for mountain biking, hiking, equestrian sports, organic farming, art and music. The San Geronimo Public School offers a choice of Montessori or Open School education programs. A Waldorf charter school is about 8 minutes from Forest Knolls en rote to Fairfax. Special features of Valley Living include: the Arti Café, a Michelin rated local, organic Indian Restaurant; an active Senior Services program at the Valley Cultural & Community Center; world renowned Spirit Rock Meditation Center and the beautiful San Geronimo Golf Course that is open to the public & rated #1 in Marin County 5 years in a row.
