The views from this home are incredible. The 1.26 acre, south facing parcel is one of 3 properties in a private enclave off the main road and features a custom built home perfectly positioned to maximize the views from every vantage point.

Peacock Gap is an absolutely lovely community off Pt San Pedro Road, accessed off the Central San Rafael exit from US 101. It is the most picturesque boulevard in all Marin County, offering a beautiful, relaxing 10 minute drive to the property. An incredible lifestyle is part of this community with a recently improved 18 hole golf course, a beautiful clubhouse, restaurant and private membership country club with pool, tennis and summer swimming lessons.
Also within 5 minutes of the property is the San Rafael Marina and Andy’s Market, a lovely community grocer with freshly baked pastries, delicous coffee drinks and take out specialties offered daily.
At the foot of Pt San Pedro Road is San Rafael’s Whole Foods Market, Trader Joes, Rite Aid and Petco, along with many fabulous specialty stores.
From the same US 101 exit, downtown San Rafael is accessed and has become a thriving hub of activities, weekly farmer’s markets, restaurants, the Rafael Theatre, home of the Mill Valley Film Festival and also home to so many wonderful shops and services.
The convenience and beauty of this location as the thriving life blood of Marin County makes living here a joy, as well as a super practical choice.
