Ideally located on a cul-de-sac in southern Novato’s Loma Verde neighborhood, this sunny home offers a natural setting backing to open space. Almost half acre lot. The property has a whimsical side, more on that below! Hiking trails right out your door. Enjoy views from a wall of windows in the living room. The kitchen opens to the back yard and has generous cabinet space, granite counters and a professional style Bertazzoni 5-burner gas range.

Downstairs is a large family/rec room with wet bar perfect for entertaining or just hanging out. Upgrades include central AC, central vacuum, dual pane windows and gas log fireplace insert. The expansive yard feels like a nature retreat with birds and deer just beyond the fence. It has lawn areas for play, a deck for dining, hillside paths, apple tree, covered patio, chicken coop and raised gardening beds.

And now to the whimsy: a tall statue of three bears carved in place from a redwood tree on the property. The artist is a local woodcarver who has been commissioned for eye-catching projects throughout the North Bay.
