Stunningly renovated & in one of Novato's most sought-after locations, this distinctive property, offers a once in a lifetime opportunity for its next caretaker. An almost 1/2-acre rear yard blends seamlessly into one of the most breathtaking settings in all of Marin. Bordering the wondrous 1,800-acre Mount Burdell Preserve, the opportunity to live in this home, on this land will not present itself again for decades. The formal living, dining and family rooms offer both an easy flow into the open chef’s kitchen, as well as to the entire outdoor experience. The upstairs floor plan is similarly well appointed & designed. There sits a second family room filled with natural light, a spacious view laden master, three more bedrooms, two baths, a laundry room & an exterior patio. What lies outside, however, is simply jaw dropping. A property & home like this one presents the opportunity of a lifetime. Opportunities are like sunrises, if you wait too long, you miss them. Don't miss this one.
