Quietly perched atop a sun-drenched site is this 3 bed / 2 bath Novato home presents a harmonious palette to exude an aura of warmth and charm throughout. This meticulously maintained home boasts a welcoming front porch and manicured yard framed by beautifully fragrant oleander trees to offer a grand greeting. Novato sunshine and views of the private backyard flood through French doors and windows making this a truly indoor-outdoor living room. Thoughtfully updated kitchen showcases KitchenAid appliances, modern white subway tile lined with ample, magnetic baby proofed cabinetry. Over the L-shaped island, clean lines dominate the family and dining rooms featuring vaulted, planked ceilings and modernized fireplace. Just outside, expansive turf lawn and patio are enveloped in lush greenery, aromatic roses and relaxing bird sounds to create a treat for the senses. Inside, highlights of the primary bedroom include French doors that open to a private backyard. Ideally situated just five minutes from endless shops and restaurants in Vintage Oaks and lively downtown Novato, this jewel box allows ease and convenience to take center stage without compromising chic casual living.
Located in the rolling hills and valleys of northern Marin County, Novato is the second-largest community in the county. Formerly known as a gateway to the Wine Country, Novato is increasingly being discovered as a destination in its own right. The reasons: great weather, a lively downtown, and homes that provide the best value in Marin.
Upscale housing includes the luxury homes of Black Point, waterfront living on the lagoons of Bel Marin Keys, the wooded Alameda Del Prado, and Indian Valley Road and its horse-country estates.
Big-box shopping is concentrated in the Vintage Oaks Shopping Center, which houses a Costco, a Target, and a Macy's Furniture, among other businesses. Downtown, a beautification program has brought new life to the businesses along Grant Avenue. The downtown area is alive with a Tuesday evening farmers market, outdoor movies, parades, and art and wine festivals.
In the '90s, military base Hamilton Field was converted to new housing and a business park. The former hangars now house cutting-edge biotech companies, digital development companies, the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art, and more than 40 art studios. Novato is also headquarters of large insurance company Fireman's Fund, as well as the Buck Institute, a research organization that focuses solely on aging.
