Described as a “Neo-Nantucket-Georgian Revival” that was redesigned by Paden Prichard, the five-bedroom Mill Valley home at 750 Lovell Avenue sits on a 3.4-acre parcel through which Cascade Creek flows and falls.

A 15th Century marble fireplace sits at the center of the home’s lower-level living room which sports 18 foot ceilings.

The adjoining kitchen is finished with hand worked American Cherry cabinets.

The dining room opens to a rather idyllic patio.

And the Master bedroom is Neo-Nantucket-Georgian Revival unique.

And for the first time since since being remodeled years ago, 750 Lovell is now on the market and priced at $4.995 million or roughly $1,600 per square foot.

    Why live if not in this house?

    Intimate, cozy, warm, calming and invigorating – after a long day at work. A place to snuggle away in on a cold winter’s day, a place to recline in the garden on a balmy summer’s day. This is quality housing. This is worth a longer commute in order to live here.

    My passion for the Northwest is because housing like this is somewhat common there and within reach of the average person – literally a tenth the cost.

    Marin gets grief for not having allowed carpet development over the decades and it does come at a price – as does everything. When I travel Marin and see homes and areas such as this I have to say the aforementioned price was worth it.

    Put down the crack pipe at $1600/sqft.

      3.4 acres in Mill Valley. With a creek.

        True, you can’t apply SF-centric square footage metrics to a property like this. Though it is on a large parcel, most of those acres are too steep for any use other than isolation from the neighbors.

    sublimely disappointing if you have to wake up in the dark in order to fight traffic to some SF high-rise to grind out the bucks to pay for it.

      Nobody who still has to grind is paying $5MM for this.

    I’m a California golden poppy: When the sun goes down, my petals close up and I start to droop. As a heliotrope, I’d be very unhappy in this house. I love to walk in shadowy, drippy forests, and if the sun’s out, I love to see light slanting through the trees. But houses in the woods of our North Coast Mountains tend to be chilly, damp, and sometimes, mildewy much of the year. This explains why, in areas like the Russian River, houses near the woods but with reliable sunshine tend to cost more than houses surrounded by shadows.

      It is indeed the perfect house for mold lovers.

        Having grown up in Mill Valley and having lived in the Sunset District, and having lots of friends who lived in Daly City and Pacifica I can tell you that Mill Valley has nothing on mold compared to any of those places. Yes it’s cool, but you don’t get the same kind of prevailing dampness in the air there as you might think.

      Well when you put it *that* way.

    I don’t understand where the ladder in the bedroom leads, that can’t be the only way into the bedroom right?

      I think it goes to an attic space with the little window you can see in the photo of the front of the house. (I tried to scroll through the website gallery to try to discern the layout, but the experience proved too annoying to complete.)

    nice house and beautiful location.

    my mom would love this house. she’d have to change out the old stoneware for majolica and white cabbage ware and she couldn’t climb that ladder much, nor does she play the piano. she has a similar kitchen with that granite and mexican terra cotta floors (but barnyard cabinets) and most of the rest of those furnishings and those lighting fixtures (including the number in the dining room). unfortunately at 80 she’s not looking to move.
