This magazine worthy Forest Knolls compound offers a singular opportunity in West Marin. Beautifully updated throughout, the residence and all four outbuildings offer great malleability in use and provide a vastly more convenient location for a weekend home than Napa or Sonoma. The sprawling compound totals +-4,869 square feet of living spaces that were designed for flexible use in accordance with the new owner’s needs, including but not limited to, a meditation/yoga retreat; rental income; corporate office; weekend/second home; or full-time residence. The main residence offers a traditional floor plan with all bedrooms, including the primary suite, on the upper level. Additionally, there is a detached guest house, two detached home offices, and large yoga studio/gym building that can also be an ideal corporate headquarters. The +-1.3 acre mostly level property offers a myriad of recreational experiences within the confines of your own property. The spectacular grounds include a water feature/designer pond with fish, old growth trees, sweeping level lawns, a large labyrinth, pool site with in-ground pool design done by Michael Yandle (wwwmbyandle.com), flower gardens, walking paths, greenhouse, rock outcroppings, and large outdoor dining area with built-in kitchen; ideal for hosting al fresco dinners and hosting events. The two gated entrance allows for great levels of privacy and quiet. Conveniently located just 12 minutes, or 5.8 miles from Fairfax, the town of Forest Knolls offers quaint surroundings with very close access to Samuel P. Taylor Park, the Point Reyes seashore, Rancho Nicasio, and the myriad of recreational opportunities in coastal West Marin including biking, hiking, and paddleboarding.

The wide-open, picture-perfect spaces of West Marin include the coastal communities of Stinson Beach and Bolinas; the dairy farms of Olema, Point Reyes Station, Tomales, and Nicasio; and the forest glens of Lagunitas, San Geronimo, and Woodacre.
Uniting all West Marin communities is a love for the land. That’s not going to change soon, thanks to the efforts of Marin Agricultural Land Trust, an organization dedicated to preserving farmland through voluntary conservation easements.
Outdoor recreation ranges from surfing at Bolinas and Stinson Beach to mountain biking on Mount Tamalpais and the annual Dipsea foot race to Stinson Beach. West Marin is an area of unrivaled natural beauty, one that can lay claim to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Muir Beach State Bark, Stinson Beach State Park, Muir Woods National Monument, and Point Reyes National Seashore.
Of course it’s not all about the outdoors in West Marin. Devotees of inner peace turn to the Green Gulch FarmZen Center in Muir Beach and Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre. And for those who need to feed the belly as well as the soul, Point Reyes Station has become a destination for the locavore movement. The town is home to Marin Sun Farms, purveyor of ethically raised and butchered meat, and Cowgirl Creamery, which makes its award-winning cheeses using organic milk from nearby Straus Family Creamery.
