Welcome to 85 Austin Avenue located just behind the Seminary in charming San Anselmo. Adjacent to town, but tucked away on a quiet street, this property is rich in charm and detail. The stucco facade, mature surrounding trees, gravel paths and patios are reminiscent of a European villa. Ascend the front steps and you are greeted by a welcoming covered porch. Through the front door, the open living space is both warm and inviting.   A vaulted living and dining room is flooded with natural light with French doors that lead to the outdoors. There is a large stone-clad fireplace at the end of the room. The dining area flows effortlessly to the open kitchen, perfect for entertaining. The warm palate, radiant stone floors, open shelving and connection to grounds create a sophisticated and comfortable environment.   


On this main level there is a media room/den clad in wall paper and custom window treatments. An in-ceiling sound system and flat screen TV make for a perfect separate lounging space. There is also a powder bathroom adjacent on this level.


Upstairs, at the end of window-lined hallway is the primary bedroom, which boasts vaulted ceilings, a wall of custom built-ins, and a picture window that looks out to the gardens. Of course there are French doors that open to a private patio and to the gardens that surround the home. The bright primary bath features double sinks, a separate loo, a soaking tub, and a glass enclosed shower. There are two additional bedrooms on this level, both with wood-clad, south-facing windows that connect to a shared bathroom.


One the lower level of the home is the fourth bedroom, which is large and features an en-suite bathroom. This room too has French doors that open to the gardens.


The entire property is fenced and gated and features an attached two-car garage as well as ample off-street parking. A complete package including disclosures and reports is available by request.

Great weather, access to hiking and biking trails, good schools, and a strong, vibrant downtown make San Anselmo a desirable destination for Marin County homebuyers looking to live a little off the beaten track.


The neighborhood surrounding the San Francisco Theological Seminary is a quiet, leafy enclave of large, older houses with well-tended yards. Heading up Butterfield Road will take you to the rolling hills above San Anselmo and sweeping views of the open spaces, grasslands, and oak trees of northern Marin County. Downtown, locals get their fill of gourmet comfort food at Comforts and their caffeine fix at the Marin Coffee Roasters. Shopping for antiques is a notable pastime here, with numerous stores devoted to discovering the perfect find.


San Anselmo is a town made for strolling. Small shops and many restaurants line the main street, which backs onto the active San Anselmo Creek. Insalata’s and Cucina Restaurant & Wine Bar are popular dinner destinations with locals.
