Tranquility & birdsong await you at this darling, midcentury home just minutes from downtown Fairfax.

Fabulous remodeled kitchen features marble tile backsplash, composite granite counter tops and porcelain floor tiles. Extended counter bar allows for socializing or enjoying a meal at the kitchen. New stainless steel appliances including gas range, further enhance the cooking experience. Modern light fixtures add warmth and brightness to this tastefully remodeled kitchen.

There are four good sized bedrooms: two sit slightly above the living room. The floor plan feels larger than the square footage of the home with two more bedrooms on the lower level along with another full bath.

Both remodeled bathrooms

2016 has proven to be an unusual year for the Marin real estate market. With the equity markets in turmoil over the exit of Britain from the EU (and the resignation of their Prime Minister), there will be a delay in U.S. interest rate hikes for the foreseeable future.
While that bodes well for our real estate market, the free fall of equities needs to be contained lest we see a fallout in real estate prices come this fall when bonuses are paid.
So many of our buyers rely on the benefit of their equity position for their down payment that Marin is likely to see a home price correction unless the international market corrects itself and fast.
Locally, we are certain to have continual expansion of tech companies and a continued inflow of top-level employees

marincf1_400Starting on June 30th and running to July 4th is the 75th Marin County Fair in San Rafael.I love the fair! Especially the bands that play outdoors.

This year there is also the Global Marketplace, plus the usual art,  photography, and a fireworks display every night! Another favorite of mine are the 4-H farm animal competitions. My kids gravitate towards the rides but I think it is more about hanging out with their friends if truth be told

Global Marketplace & Competitions
Showcasing some of the best local and global products and services is the Global Marketplace. Rules are set in place for each vendor to allow the Marin Fair to continue being the “Greenest County Fair on Earth,” such as using biodegradable or reusable bags and serving food samples in

There is also a great sub festival called, Ecofest that is held up at the Pavillion. Lots of eco product booths and an organic wine bar.

Prices  increased here in "the Hollow" even as inventory decreased.

This past month 1359 Butterfield sold for $3,300,000 which is a record for this part of the 'hood'. There were two offers.

Shortly,1360 Butterfield is going to come on the market for $2,900,000. It was purchased last year for $,1515,000 and is now rolling out with added square footage and a whole new look. Think: Restoration Hardware meets Sunset Magazine. (Let me know if you want a sneak peak.)

As of this writing only three homes have sold in Sleepy Hollow since the first of the year. By this time last yeear, six homes had sold. This is the story all over Marin right now. Inventory has been down, sales have been down and prices were trending up. I say "were" because while homes are
