Remodeled Contemporary in Tamalpais Valley

Located in the heart of Tamalpais Valley, 20 Fern Way feels like its own private retreat surrounded by lush landscaping at the end of a quiet street. With clean lines in mind, the recent remodel retains the home’s mid-century modern architecture while offering an open-concept style of living. Walls of windows bring ample natural light throughout the home, accentuating gorgeous hardwood floors paired with vaulted, open-beam ceilings and modern finishes throughout. Perfectly blending indoor and outdoor living, 20 Fern Way offers 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 1,995± square feet of living space with impeccable attention to detail throughout. Newer Ipe decks surrounding the upper level provide the perfect setting for al-fresco entertaining and evening star gazing. In close proximity to Mill Valley's vibrant downtown shops, cafes, restaurants, Sweetwater music venue, Muir Beach, world-class hiking/biking trails, award-winning schools, and highway 101, it’s hard not to fall in love with the lifestyle at 20 Fern Way.

The upper level of the home includes an open living room with a marble surround fireplace surrounded by a wall of windows providing the perfect cozy hangout with views of the green surrounding hillside. The newly remodeled kitchen and dining area features newer stainless steel appliances including a Viking double-door refrigerator, Viking double-ovens, Viking 6-burner cooktop gas range, a double-drawer dishwasher and a large kitchen island with countertop seating for three. Newer cabinets along one wall of the kitchen extends into the dining area providing ample countertop and storage space with a built-in work station. The dining area comfortably seats up to 6 guests and opens to an enclosed sunporch and sliding glass doors that lead to the large Ipe front deck. The light filled sunroom is the perfect place for morning coffee or to be used as a kid’s play area. Newly rebuilt in 2016, the front deck receives all day sun and is the perfect space for outdoor entertaining and lounging. The deck wraps around the west side of the home and can also be accessed from the living room and master suite to thoroughly connect with the outdoors.

The master suite and second en-suite bedroom are also on the upper level of the home. The large master bedroom features high vaulted open-beamed ceilings, a built-in closet and a master bathroom with a sunken tub shower surrounded by a wall of windows that feels like one is outdoors with complete privacy. The second bedroom enjoys its own private deck and newly remodeled en-suite bathroom with a midcentury modern vanity and subway tile Carrara shower surround over a bathtub.

The lower level of the home includes a large living room that could be used as a fourth bedroom, an office with a wrap-around built-in desk large enough for two people, and the third en-suite bedroom with a sliding glass door that leads to the back patio and yard. The third bathroom was also newly remodeled in 2015.

The private back patio and yard is surrounded by fresh greenery and provides the perfect backdrop for a fire pit or a hot tub while the lawn is the ideal play area for kids, outdoor games or lounge chairs to soak in the sun. A babbling creek travels between the patio and yard.

20 Fern Way is ideally located in one of the best locations in Mill Valley. Enjoying everything Mill Valley has to offer, this treasure of a home is walkable to award-winning schools, biking and hiking trails, Good Earth Natural Foods and is only a short drive to Muir and Stinson beaches, Mount Tamalpais, public transportation and is incredibly convenient to Highway 101 making the morning and afternoon commute to San Francisco the easiest and fastest Mill Valley has to offer.
