I Could Live Here: Modern Lodge in Marin

My dream house is located on Sarah Road in Mill Valley.

I’m not a homeowner yet, and I’ve just realized why not. Aside from the obvious (single gal’s publishing salary does not equal fabulous housing in Bay Area) there’s the less obvious issue of house commitment. I love so many different types of houses—old, new, traditional, contemporary, shingled, stucco, A-frame or saltbox—that I can’t imagine having to chose one to live in for long enough to be a sane investment. But my new blog assignment is to do just that: to share my favorite real estate listing once a week. You can expect a motley assortment of homes in the weeks ahead. Just today I perused the photos of a rare circa-1904 Victorian in Sausalito  and this regency period piece in Los Angeles before upping the ante by choosing “no max. price” in the MLS listings and landing on my first dream home.

Less than two miles from where I currently live in a rental that has seen better decades, there is a place called Sarah Road (I know, right!?!). And at the top of a hill on Sarah Road, there’s a 5,000-square-foot-house on three acres, where I could see myself living happily for a very long time. With a weathered shingle siding, vaulted ceilings, stone fireplaces and enough wood paneling to make the views of SF feel like a mirage, it’s almost like someone put my list of dream-house requirements in a blender and came up with this contemporary Adirondack style house in Mill Valley .
