Historical records convey the home’s rich history. In the 1960s, the home was used as an antique shop, owned by the French Consulate’s wife who brought the iron gate from France.
Steps from the water’s edge and the lifestyle of a quaint village offering exquisite dining, coffee shops, galleries, shopping, strolling, and picture-perfect views. Get your morning exercise by walking the Bridgeway Promenade, climbing Excelsior Lane steps, or hiking Marin Headlands with its spectacular views of the hills rising above the ocean.
