Presenting 28 Willow Lane, Sausalito
As soon as you enter 28 Willow, you’ll notice the quality of the remodeling: travertine flooring, oak doors & trim, maple cabinetry, Uba Tuba granite countertops, recessed lighting and newer energy-efficient windows throughout. You’ll also notice the air conditioning! The owners have installed central heat and air, which is very rare for this complex.
This floorplan benefits from a bedroom suite on each floor. Downstairs, you’ll find a spacious family room with an extra wide fireplace surrounded by an elegant carved oak mantle, granite tile and flanked by two vertical windows. During the remodel, the kitchen was enlarged and widened and now offers an abundance of custom-made maple cabinetry with plenty of room for all of your cooking needs, plus a built-in cooktop, oven and microwave. The granite countertops offer workspace and also a perfect spot for casual seating, as the kitchen has an open pass-through to the dining area. There are double sliding glass doors that lead out to the serene rear patio, perfect for entertaining and al fresco dining. The first-floor bedroom suite has a large walk-in closet and a set of sliding doors that lead to one of the two patios. The full bathroom on this level can be accessed via the foyer, for guest use, and has a modern granite step-in shower, maple vanity and an extra-tall linen cabinet.
Upstairs, you’ll notice the vaulted ceilings and tall vertical windows in the open office/den space. There is plenty of room for a home office or even a workout space in this area. The upstairs primary bedroom suite features high corbelled ceilings with recessed lighting and a modern ceiling fan. There is yet another walk-in closet. The primary bathroom has an amazing Kohler double whirlpool tub with adjacent glass enclosed Uba Tuba granite shower stall, and again, plenty of storage in the vanity and bonus corner full-height linen closet. Finishing this floor is a large sky-lit combination laundry/storage room and an additional 250 sq.ft. of storage in an attic-like space that was added during the remodel.
The owners have paid attention to many of the important details: there is an energy efficient 84-gallon stainless steel Rheem water heater with a life-time warranty. They have eliminated the inefficient ceiling heating panels that are typical in this complex and instead installed a Unico System for heat; along with this, they installed a central air conditioner. The kitchen has a reverse osmosis drinking system in addition to the filtered water through the refrigerator
During the remodel, the townhome was earthquake retrofitted: all corners have imbedded steel braces and the entire unit has shear walls.
Out back, the concrete tile patio has been lovingly maintained, with its surrounding landscaping, including a lovely mature fig tree, a dwarf Meyer lemon tree, and an avocado tree. Relax & retreat and watch the deer & other wildlife in the forest. Beyond the fence is the Willow Creek open space, which is owned by The Willow’s HOA but cared for by the City of Sausalito and the Friends of Willow Creek.
HOA dues are $723.00 per month and include sewer, garbage, exterior maintenance, landscaping, insurance and management. HOA amenities include a pool and a hot tub.
The Willows is located just off Bridgeway St. and is conveniently across the street from Mollie Stone’s market, the post office, & FedEx office store. Sausalito Fitness Club is across the street. Numerous dining options are nearby, such as Avatar’s, Fish, Saylor’s, Poggio, Le Garage and more. Transportation is easy, with a GG Transit stop just a block away, and quick access to Hwy 101.
Sausalito offers some the best views of San Francisco that Marin County has to offer. Stroll along the bayfront promenade on a weekend, and you'll hear the languages of visitors who come to Sausalito from all over the world. Tourists come for the Sausalito Art Festival, its hidden walks, its funky houseboat colonies, its seafood, and unforgettable views. But come during a weekday, and you'll likely have it all to yourself. Sausalito’s Bridgeway is home to pleasant Dunphy Park, while the local library and Studio 333, a warehouse-sized art gallery, are a few blocks away. Food runs the gamut from Sushi Ran to Smitty's Bar -- where the bartender knows you your name and the kitchen serves up a delicious and unpretentious cheeseburger and fries. Increasingly, Sausalito is home to new media and green-tech entrepreneurs who have traded in the Silicon Valley commute for a walk to headquarters along the Waterfront and Marinship District. Located just north of the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito boasts quick access to San Francisco by car, bus, ferry, or bike.
