 I had the pleasure of representing the buyers on the purchase of their beautiful new home in the very desirable Rush Creek Neighborhood of Novato. Built in 1998 and situated on a little over half an acre, this home offers privacy and an open floor plan on one level with high ceilings and an abundance of windows and light. It features 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a 3-car attached garage with separation and privacy for guests, an office plus a big open kitchen and family room. It is beautifully landscaped with fruit trees, a waterfall, swimming pool, spa and lots of room to entertain outside. It truly is the perfect balance between an outdoor lifestyle and indoor comfort. 30 Saddle Wood Drive sold for $1.7Million.

Modern & Stylish

Built in 2005, this top floor 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo is light and modern with spectacular pastoral views. The living room has a vaulted ceiling, gas fireplace and sliding glass door that opens to a patio with views to the Silviera Ranch. The kitchen is well designed with plenty of cabinets, granite countertops and a stackable washer and dryer. The floor plan is ideal because there is separation between the two bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate a variety of lifestyles…home office, children, or a roommate.

The Downtown Streets Team is an organization that believes that by having a job and being able to take care of ones’ own basic needs is the center piece to helping folks transition to a better life…and get them off the streets.

The Downtown Streets Team organization has changed lives in at least 6 bay area cities since 2007, and have been doing so in San Rafael, since 2013.

I also want to share the details of the immense change that has occurred over the years and what the future seems to hold for this great community. With that said, I share with you a brief history of Novato starting with the early development back in 1856 when Joseph Sweetser and Francis DeLong purchased a Mexican land grant
