Convenient Mill Valley Location
Welcome to 3 Shell Road in the convenient and sunny Horse Hill neighborhood of Mill Valley. Situated on a level, street-to-street lot this property was originally built in the 1940’s. Boasting tons of character and charm, this quintessential cottage is delightful. The house features an open living room with custom window benches on either side of a fabulous fireplace insert, which is finished with a reclaimed wood mantle. The room flows effortlessly to the dining room and then to the open kitchen. The kitchen features white cabinets, light countertops and stainless appliances throughout - the entire home is reminiscent of a beach house.
There are two bedrooms - a guest room and a primary. The primary has a dreamy pair of French doors that open to the grounds. A shared bathroom, with white wainscoting and stylish wallpaper are just too perfect. There’s also a darling side porch for storing shoes, coats which contains the laundry.
The backyard boasts a level, sun-filled lawn and is surrounded by mature plantings. The lot spans to the road behind and is over 7,500 ft sq (per realist public records). While not verified, there is likely expansion potential, buyer should check with the County of Marin. There is also a separate garage structure, currently used as a combination workout/ lounge space. The back yard is fully fenced for privacy.

The Depot is also a jumping-off spot for hikers and mountain bikers heading up the slopes of Mount Tamalpais.
