Borrowing views from the valley beyond, this Marin county property is an absolute retreat from the city life. Monolithic steps sweep in from the entryway past lush woodland plantings and a custom water feature, landing at the newly built deck. Respecting the sloping hillside, a meandering gravel path softened by low growing perennials leads down to the pool terrace. Low perimeter plantings along the pool terrace frame characteristic views of the valley surrounding the property. A graceful arbor and water feature complete the peaceful getaway.
