Large 1200 SF 1 Bd, 1 Ba cottage, serene and private, but close to everything! Funky, cool, casual feel. Amazing great room with 20' ceiling and walls of windows looking out onto lush woodlands. On gated 2-acre property shared with a house and another cottage. Sleeps 4. Ideally located in sunny central Marin, just 20 min from the GG Bridge!
This is a fun, unique unit with a casual treehouse feel. Perfect for the relaxed guest looking for a beautiful, serene place to chill. Originally used as a music studio and hangout, for teaching, jamming, watching the game and being with friends. It's the kind of place where you can relax, spread out, and put your feet up on the furniture. You don't have to worry about playing the TV too loud or knocking over antiques. Guys, hipsters, free spirits, teens and families tend to love it.
The Musician's Cottage consists of an older one-bedroom guest cottage with a new great room added on. This great room is quite astonishing, with 20' ceilings and walls of windows on three sides looking out over woodland. It has a large HD flatscreen TV with Direct TV package. Off the great room is small deck with a new Weber grill and seating, looking out over the woods.
The whole unit has a cool, rec-room/ man-cave vibe, with prints by Banksy, matching Joey and Chandler leather recliners and a beat-up painted wood floor in the great room. It has several fun, offbeat features: a leftover exterior window between rooms, kitchen cabinets that look like they were designed by the Flintstones, etc. The unit is entirely set for comfort, though: the bedroom features a top-quality queen-sized latex mattress, for example, and there's newly installed HVAC.
In the bedroom there's a dresser but no closet; guests hang their clothes on a portable garment rack. The bathroom is older and need renovating, but is clean, with a shower (no tub).
Sun streams through four french doors with a garden view into the eat-in kitchen, which seats 4. The kitchen is small and older but fully stocked with the basics and good-quality cookware. Adjacent is a small sitting area. There is reliable wireless internet throughout.
There's a twin bed with trundle in the far corner of the great room, that sleeps an extra two people.
The cottage is totally private but in a sweet, upscale, ridiculously safe area with neighbors on all sides. The owners are almost always in the main house and readily available should any need arise.
The location couldn't be more ideal. It is a minute from the main thoroughfare Sir Francis Drake, two minutes from charming downtown Kentfield, 5 minutes from the highway, twenty minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge, 30 minutes from San Francisco and 40 minutes from wine country. It is in the prettiest part of one of the most beautiful counties in the country - Marin - and close to everything. Grocery stores, restaurants etc. are all minutes away. But here's the kicker: it feels totally removed, with no traffic noise and total privacy. A secret oasis!
The cottage comes with one designated parking place. Laundry facilities are available on the property, in a rental-unit laundry room on the basement floor of the main house. There are a couple of steps down to the entry of the Cottage.

The cottage is a work-in-progress and has a few areas that aren't 100% complete. For example, we haven't yet built the deck outside the French doors in the great room, or the stairs outside the door behind the trundle bed. The french doors are blocked and impossible to open, for safety's sake. The corner door, while hard to access behind the trundle, is operable and a potential hazard. Also, a few things about the Cottage aren't child-safe: for example, there are operable ground floor windows in the great room, which guests with small children will have to keep closed and locked at all times. None of this is a problem for 99% of the guests that stay here but feel free to discuss with us in detail before booking.
This is a quiet residential area and a family property. Please keep noise down after 10pm.
