Idyllic Marin Cottage On Corinthian Island, $5MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Named after its venerable yacht club, Corinthian Island is no longer an island, having been connected to neighboring Belvedere Island in the early 20th Century, which itself was connected long ago to Marin County. But the names persist with grand waterfront homes and leafy neighborhoods of classic brown-shingled houses, many with coveted views, in the vernacular Carpenter aesthetic that originally came to the Bay Area with the Gold Rush.
One of less than sixty homes on Corinthian Island, this handsomely remodeled 3-bed, 3-bath Marin Cottage is a perfect example of its type, beautifully scaled and set into the hillside overlooking Belvedere Cove, in what’s often cited as the best micro-climate in the North Bay. It’s perfectly laid out for working remotely– but is also a quick walk to “Downtown Tiburon” and the Ferry across the Bay to San Francisco, one of the world’s most beautiful commutes.
