Rustic Retreat near SF & Wine Ctry

House, Entire place - Novato, United States

ID 53111


This Blackpoint estate is located on 1/3 acre of land with a private driveway, and is directly adjacent to the Days Island wildlife preserve. This is an ideal spot for those wanting to visit both SF and the wine country in Napa/Sonoma. It is roughly 25 minutes away from each by car. A car is a necessity as no public transportation comes even close to the house.

On a typical morning or at dusk, you are likely to encounter a family of deer who often like to snack on the plants nearby. There is also an abundance of quail and a family of wild turkey, as well as bluejays, hawks, quail, and rabbits. An adorable cat has made this his new home and typically sleeps downstairs. Food is provided for him. There is plenty of hiking nearby. If you are feeling adventurous, you can walk for miles around Black Point.

There is a large garden which you are welcome to eat from which bears lemons, figs, tomatoes, peppers, etc. The vegetables change a lot depending on the season. There is also a BBQ on the front porch with a table and chairs and is a great area to entertain people if you have guests visiting.

On a clear day you can see San Francisco (at least the TransAmerica building) from the 10x35 foot deck off the master bedroom, which is ideal for sunning. The living room and kitchen are white pine. There are two skylights, an excellent soundsystem, projector and an 8 foot screen thats ideal for watching movies (actual image size is around 5 feet; use your VGA port on your laptop or borrow mine in a pinch.) There is wifi internet service which comes in handy for wifi calling if your cell reception is poor.

Cereal, milk, and fresh organic fruit are provided. There are also a couple bottles of wines from local vineyards for your enjoyment.

The house is divided into the upstairs 2 bedroom + 2 decks (where you will be staying), and a studio downstairs that I have been using for storage. These have separate entrances. The house is large enough for 2 couples or a family. The living room couch is a pull-out bed which can be used if more bedspace is needed.
