“San Anselmo is one of the Marin County towns that have become increasingly popular in recent years: Just 45 minutes from San Francisco, it is within commuting distance of many companies, but also offers easy access to hiking and mountain biking trails. This house is few blocks from the center of town, within walking distance of United Markets, a grocery store specializing in locally produced and sourced items, as well as a handful of casual restaurants, including an outpost of Phyllis’ Giant Burgers, a beloved local chain of old-fashioned hamburger shops.

Indoors: To take advantage of the direct sunlight that hits the front yard, the sellers landscaped it with gravel and set up planter boxes where they grow herbs and vegetables.
From the yard, stairs lead up to the lime-green front door, which opens into a foyer with hardwood floors. The hardwood flooring continues into an open living area with a black-painted brick fireplace and a wall of windows facing the deck and the trees beyond.
A dining area sits between the glass door that opens to the deck and a doorway to the eat-in kitchen, which has a chalkboard wall and new appliances, including a stainless steel stovetop from Bosch.
Three bedrooms are on this level, off a hallway that extends from the living room. The primary suite is at the far end, with windows that look directly into the trees and a bathroom with Heath tile and a new wood vanity. The two guest rooms, which face each other across the hall, have closets with built-in shelving; they share a full bathroom with more Heath tile and a combination tub and shower.”
