I had the pleasure of representing the buyer who relocated to Marin from Watsonville a year ago to be near her daughter and two grandchildren. Roslyn was referred to me by Scott Sohle of US Bank in Mill Valley. We hit it off immediately. Roslyn had been renting an apartment in Larkspur Landing and was anxious to be a homeowner again. She knew what she wanted and it didn't take long to find the ideal home for her in San Rafael; a light, spacious 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath townhome with a large enclosed patio for gardening. The front opens onto an expansive lawn area and view of the pool, perfect for her grandchildren this summer. It was a good value at $412,500.
Conveniently located off Freitas Parkway near 101 and Northgate Shopping Center, San Rafael Manor is a co-op community. There are 180 units, varying in size and floor plans with a clubhouse, swimming pool and expansive lawn and outdoor area. It is unique because everything is covered in the monthly homeowner's dues including property taxes and much of the day-to-day maintenance that a typical condo owner would be responsible for repairing and replacing. It offers an extra level of security and peace of mind.
It you are looking for a good value and carefree life-style in the Dixie School District, near Kaiser, Northgate Shopping Center and easy access to 101, San Rafael Manor might be perfect for you.
