Ever have that feeling when you look at something and think Yeah, this is nice, it'll do for now''? Maybe it's a bike, a car, a surfboard, a house? You assume that you will want more or a nicer version at some point in the not-too-distant future? Well, little did the current owner of this adorable Craftsman in the sought-after Montecito/Happy Valley area of San Rafael know 28 years ago when he first bought this property that it would be the home he would lovingly remodel over time, the one that would capture his heart all these years. Perfectly situated for easy access to Whole Foods & Trader Joe's, downtown San Rafael, Highway 101, the Larkspur Ferry, and the Smart Train, not to mention a short drive to the Wine Country, Marin's stunning beaches, and boundless trails, this 2BR/1BA charmer with a variety of fruit trees, front deck for evening sunset viewing, & private backyard/garden with its own redwood grove is the one that will undoubtedly become your forever home too. Welcome home!
