From the exterior courtyard to the warm wood interior, the Marin County Shack is a weekend retreat you'll never want to leave. The home was originally built in the 1930s. While most of the house has been renovated, it was full of rare treasures like old growth redwood siding, original Douglas Fir ceilings, and a Sonoma stone fireplace that was salvaged for the new project. A two-story addition connects to the existing structure offering a living room and upper-level master suite with views reaching Mount Baldy. The outdoor garden received just as much attention as the internal spaces. Designed by the owner who is also a landscape architect, the multi-level terrace features a 36-foot lap pool, a spa, and a curated selection of trees and native grasses that compliments the Northern California landscape.
