Property Website

The quintessential modern farmhouse designed by one of Mill Valley’s pioneers of the style, architect Kelly Haegglund.  This 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath, 3,000 square-foot home is virtually all new construction. It was recently taken down to the studs and completely re-configured to suit today’s family lifestyle. Once you walk through the property’s trellised entrance, you feel as if you have been transported to a countryside oasis. Enjoy the tranquil sound of falling water from the garden fountains as you approach the large level lawn, lush plantings, generous front porch and large bluestone patio.

In keeping with the farmhouse aesthetic, the signature indoor space is the Great Room, with its barn-like volume, wood-planked ceilings with exposed beams, and dramatic fireplace. The artfully designed gourmet kitchen seamlessly blends into the surroundings of the living space with a huge island, stylish fixtures, and a pantry with wine storage. Ideal for entertaining and with easy indoor/outdoor flow to the patio and large lawn, this great room is the hub of the house. On the main level there are 4 bedrooms, including a luxurious master suite that has vaulted ceilings and a glamorous bathroom with oversized shower and freestanding bath tub. There is also a family room, laundry room and office area conveniently located on the main level. The lower floor has a mud room and guest bedroom and bathroom that is perfect for long-term guests, teenagers or au pair and there is a large, two-car garage. While you are just a short stroll to Miller Avenue and all the action at Swirl, Taco Joe’s and Whole Foods, the property is so private and the outdoor space so engaging that it feels more like a remote retreat. As with all of Kelly Haegglund’s homes, the design and floor plan are flawless. Every detail has been perfected and the result is a fully realized concept of the ideal family home.
