This rare turn-of-the-century brown shingle home is sited on one of the most desirable and largest, flat properties in San Anselmo and is rich in history.
Private and gated, this home boasts a classic 5 bedroom main home and a 1 bedroom and 1 bath guest cottage/legal rental unit. The impressive front porch greets you as you enter into a gracious foyer separating the formal dining area and charming living area, both with leaded glass and stately fireplaces. The master bedroom has a sitting room and is on the main floor. Upstairs, 4 bedrooms are accessed from the convenient central great room/family room. This home has the feeling of yesteryear with the high ceilings, distinctive wood moldings, and yet it has today's modern conveniences. The original owners of this special residence were Benjamin and Ada Schmidt. They came to Marin from San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake.
