Inverness is inland from the Pacific Ocean and just off of the Tomales Bay and Point Reyes Coastline. It is the ultimate rural retreat for San Francisco Bay Area modernist. There are a number of custom homes within Inverness that have a very Bauhaus-inspired vibe about them which should not be overlooked by anyone looking for a modern or mid-century modern home in Western Marin.
One of the original modern homes in Inverness is a custom property designed by Jack Hillmer. Built for a West Marin artist, this home consists of 3 hexagons that are joined to create different living spaces. The home has a double height living room, which is grand to say the least and captures the true beauty of the rich environment surrounding the residence.
A more recently designed Inverness home was created by Swatt Architects. This property was developed with five floor levels that integrate with the hillside on which it is built. The middle level is a public entry and serves as a central spine that joins the public and private spaces of the home. Strategically placed skylights bring radiance to the home. The design of this home is also sensitive to the environment and most rooms open to expansive views of the Tomales Bay or private hillside gardens.
If you are more into city living but need a place to think and be at one with nature, Inverness real estate might be the perfect choice for a Bay Area vacation home. You can find modern day masterpieces from firms like JSWD Architects and Jon Fernandez Architecture that capture the true vibe of this remote and beautiful area or, since there is still land to be had in Inverness, you can create you own Zen oasis or green home. Don't, however, be surprised if you suddenly have friends from the city coming out of the woodwork to hang out at your seashore oasis, making that Zen thing an inspiration rather than a reality!
