Description

First offering of a classic creek side enclave where one family celebrated life for 122 years under majestic redwoods, splashing in stream water, and playing in the backyard’s old North Pacific Coast Railroad bed. Great-grandpa built his two-home retreat on opposite banks of a quintessential brook when time was spent outside under filtered daylight and twinkling nightlight. Kids frolicked along the shore; lovers kissed under spreading boughs; and large neighborhood gatherings partied here on the covered porch and back deck and were occasionally photographed for posterity. As youngsters, today’s owners helped manicure a dance floor in a natural tree-lined amphitheater behind the main house where evening sounds of nature were only outdone by music, foot tapping and laughter.

Recent upgrades: Engineered bridge, two septic systems, foundation, roof, electrical, plumbing, sheer, dual pane windows, central heat. 

Step Back in Time
Few properties offer century-old history with modern upgrades like this 122-year-old encampment on Lagunitas Creek.
At first it served as a gathering place for adults and children in the heat of the summer; subsequently occupied as a fulltime residence for later generations when Lagunitas School needed more students to establish a taxable district. 
Loved and cared for, modernized and protected by five generations of one family, it is difficult to let go. 
The romance of a covered porch or a nook under a low-slung ceiling evokes a feeling that can’t be duplicated in newer construction. 
It’s an acre of natural splendor in an exclusive redwood grove in an unduplicatable setting.
