Clients Sharlene and Joel purchased their Upper Lucas Valley Eichler in the summer of 2011.  Over the past couple of years they have completely transformed the landscaping to compliment the clean lines of their home. Since many Marin Modern clients are Eichler homeowners or drawn to modern architecture, I asked Sharlene to share her vision and inspiration for the design.

Gas Fireplace inserts: Marin County

Do love the warmth and ambiance of a cozy fire but are frustrated by the limitations of your current fireplace, no burn days and the cost and storage of wood? A gas fireplace insert may be a great option for you.

A few years ago, unwilling at the time to give up on my traditional fireplace, I had a smoke guard, gas log starter and taller stack installed.  I was so

10 Things I Love about the 94903 zip code

Growing up in San Rafael 94901, I didn't venture much into the Northern part of San Rafael except for an occasional trip to the bid "E" at Northgate Mall, a summer splash at the Terra Linda rec center pool and of course my annual adventure to the Marin County Fair.  In fact, as a SRHS Bulldog, Terra Linda was the rivalling land.  All that changed when I bought my first house in the early ‘90's in Terra Linda.  It was a mid-century modern home and the beginning of my new found love for the 94903 zip code. Over the last 20 years I have lived in Terra Linda and Lower Lucas Valley. The following are 10, of the many  things, I love about 94903. There are so many more...what are your favorite things?
