153 Walnut Ave, Mill Valley

Modern Mill Valley Bungalow

4 Bedrooms      2 Bathrooms      1875 SF      5200 SF Lot

Located in Mill Valley's coveted Tamalpais/Sycamore Park, this quintessential 1924 Bungalow was lovingly remodeled with sophisticated finishes, a modern flair, and open concept floor-plan. The lot sits majestically on a southwest corner that absorbs light from day to early evening. Old world charm and details were restored and respected, while new finishes throughout the home were thoughtfully planned.

The home has a lovely flow with all amenities on one level and indoor/outdoor invitation to impeccably maintained grounds. The wrap around front patio is spacious and comfortable, perfect for relaxing on lazy afternoons, entertaining, or children's play.  The grand living area is spacious yet intimate and features a fireplace with marble and stone tile laid in a herringbone pattern juxtaposed by original built-in bookshelves and windows that offer a glimpse of Mill Valley's stately Mt. Tamalpais.

The center and heart of the home features a gourmet kitchen outfitted with stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, an abundance of custom cabinetry, and oversized kitchen island ideal for entertaining or casual family meals.  The dining area is adjacent to large trifold doors that open to the side yard with outdoor decking that allows for indoor/outdoor dining or entertaining.

Custom lighting throughout the home includes recessed lighting, glass pendants, globe pendant, all new outdoor lighting, and skylights. New French Oak engineered floors, designer tiled mudroom with bench and shoe storage, all new carpeted bedrooms, and a side/side laundry closet with granite folding counter and custom shelving are just some of the unique touches in the home.

The large private master-suite is tucked away from public space and additional bedrooms featuring french doors to a spacious outdoor seating area.  The master bathroom is stunning and boasts a custom tiled stall shower with Diamond-Fusion glass enclosure, custom oak cabinetry with vanity, and a Neptune stone-composite bath tub found in Four Seasons hotels.

The three additional bedrooms in the home are all separate with no adjoining walls and feature custom closet systems and large windows.  A dramatic designer second bath features gorgeous tile patterns on the tub surround and floor and a Restoration Hardware vanity.

All new Marvin windows and Simpson doors were added throughout the home and the large picture windows in the living area are original, as is the stately front door with it's original glass intact.  A new furnace, new roof, new sewer lateral, new fencing, and all new landscaping complete with automatic sprinkler system completes this thoughtfully remodeled home.  Even the sidewalks are landscaped and auto-sprinkled!

A one-car garage, a one-car parking pad, and a newly-poured driveway serve parking for at least three cars.

The neighborhood is sought-after and walkable to downtown Mill Valley, just minutes to all the conveniences, amenities, restaurants and theaters Mill Valley has to offer. Nature, hiking, Mt. Tamalpais, Stinson Beach, Highway 101, and the Golden Gate bridge are all in proximity.

This home is a winner and has it all!
