The hubby and I are too young to retire and are in this unique place in life right now where for the first time in several decades, we could actually pull up and live somewhere else for a change of pace. We don't want to make this a permanent move, but are willing to consider an extended stay depending upon the place and situation. Both of us work in areas where we can do what we do virtually.
We live in a charming, updated story book home in a very high end, prestigious neighborhood near downtown Mill Valley surrounded by nature and magnificent hiking trails, literally 3 minutes walk from our back yard. Gorgeous, all organic garden with plenty of room to grow your own veggies. We're avid gardeners and planted a massive amount of flowers, vines, and fruit trees -- its so spectacular our garden has been featured in tours. Close to all the very best schools in Mill Valley, walking distance to the coveted Park School (K-5). 11 miles from downtown San Francisco, easy commute -- we're just 5 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge.
Its a darling, doll house, 1330 square feet, 3 bedroom, 1 1/4 bath with a claw foot tub and surround carrera marble. Totally updated, central heat and air conditioning, hardwood floors in every room except the Chef's kitchen which has the black and white with a fabulous vintage stove. Great house for entertaining with wrap around decks, large patios and views of the SF city and bay. Wood burning fireplace. Fenced in for our small dogs -- I'd be open to discuss yours, as I would be bringing my two tiny and darling doggies with us.
I have plenty of pictures and am open to a lot of scenarios. I have no idea whether or not this will work but I thought I'd give it a try as what if you're sitting there and thinking the same thingy? I'd like to live in the Westside of LA, preferably Santa Monica, Malibu, Beverly Hills or the Hollywood Hills and would love a heated pool. Other places we'd like to live are in fabulous flats in the best areas of Manhattan, Paris, London and or believe it or not, the city of SF - we like the Mission District, Pac Heights, Cow Hollow, etc.. We've lived in all of these areas at various times of our lives and loved it.
We're open to when, and for how long, too. A month? 3 months? The school year? Next summer? So -- let's start the dialogue! Please email me through Craigs List and I'll get back to you once I'm certain its not a scam. I understand you probably feel the same way so we can take this slow until we're both comfortable enough to reveal ourselves:~)
