My Notes

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a historic home in a fantastic wooded setting just steps from San Rafael village. Originally built in 1873, the colorful history of this building includes its use as a Sufi retreat center, a sanctuary for pilgrims from around the world. This approximately 4,655 square foot home (per architectural drawings) is fully detached, sitting high on its 12,000 square foot lot. The home has spectacular tree shaded outlooks of the lush hills and San Francisco Bay. The home is ringed in lovely porches providing access to the outdoors at every turn. The massive wood clad entry room could function as ballroom with its solid built-in benches, gorgeous fireplace, elegant brass sconces and warm hardwood flooring. A wood paneled library is set up a level from an intimate wood paneled parlor which accesses the large country style eat-in kitchen. Huge pantry and storage room plus the mud room at the back lead to the garden through a side entrance. A charming single room cottage would make a fun playhouse or off-site office. The upper floor is airy and light with high ceilings, huge windows a massive hallway connecting the many bedrooms and the second level porch. Original claw footed tubs and marble sink consoles grace the baths. A lofty sunroom is up a level and overlooks the garden.The terraced garden slopes up behind the house offering the opportunity to have a lovely and private landscape. Decks set in the back garden make this space practical and usable. A one car garage at street level is built-in to the stone walls at the front gate which does not give a hint of the fascinating property to be found inside.Please visit: www.MajesticVictorian.com  More Less

    Zillow predicts 94901 home values will increase 2% next year, compared to a 1.9% increase for San Rafael as a whole. Among 94901 homes, this home is valued 96.8% more than the midpoint (median) home, but is valued 48.8% less per square foot.

    Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 94901, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 7.7% higher than in San Rafael, and 91% higher than the national average. This higher local number may prevent 94901 home values from rising as quickly as other regions in San Rafael.
