Step back to a simpler time at this sweet forest hideaway! Camp Tamalpais in Homestead Valley was once a favored spot for Beat poets and the surrounding artistic community continues to this very day. The one bedroom/one bathroom home is rumored to be one of the first properties selected, circa 1900, and it sits up on the south-facing, sunny side of the canyon. Easy access through the flats of Homestead Valley!

These good spots don’t become available very often, and when the current owner purchased the property 27 years ago, it was done in a private off-market transaction. The half-acre parcel includes many decks and areas to capture the sun and views at different times of day, and when work or quiet time calls, you have a separate detached artist studio to settle into.

The home has been meticulously maintained through the years, with many period details and an updated foundation. Extra storage and a laundry room are also in the main house. There is a detached, oversized 1-car garage, plus an additional parking space. The trail up the canyon to Cowboy Rock is right at the bottom of your stairs, and historic Stolte Grove is adjacent to the entrance to the neighborhood. Peaceful solitude, soaring birds and the sound of running water during the winter…this is a very special property awaiting its next very special owner!
