Open House Obsession: Check Out This Sweet Mill Valley Cottage in the Woods, $1.25M


Where: 118 Harvard Avenue, Mill Valley
When: Saturday and Sunday, August 5 and 6 from 1:00pm-4:00pm
Asking: $1,250,000
What: A charming and unpretentious 3-bed, 2-bath home built in 1960, at a time when men were men, women were women, political camps were clearly defined, and Marin County’s Mill Valley was the epicenter of the nascent counter-culture movement. Back then, one’s choice of home could be a political act, and Progressives were building these simple, International Style-inflected wood frame houses that could still fall under the rubric of “Marin Cottages.”

What We Love: It’s the perfect venue for a growing collection of Mid-Century furniture and objects. There’s no lawn to mow. Plus we’re a pushover for outriggers and wire-mesh.

More: Go to the listing for additional images and details. The property was brought to the market by Pacific Union’s Barr Haney and Whitney Potter.
