405 hibiscus way, san rafael, california

let's call this 'real estate wednesday', shall we? i'm starting a series of regular posts each week and each wednesday will from here forth be known as 'real estate wednesday.' other days of the week have fabulous subjects attached to them and will start on monday. but i couldn't keep this little gem from you, so we are starting mid-week. there are no rules!!

i consider my taste/style to be somewhat eclectic. and i have a thing for eichlers. especially ones in marin county, california, where the setting and weather is to die for. not to mention the hamlet's proximity to san francisco.

here we have a LOVELY alliance built home that has been tastefully restored. as much as i love these homes i am not a huge fan of the natural wood interiors. i love the architectural details, but i find all of that wood a tad oppressive and dark. this specimen has all of the wood work painted out white (i know, purists, i'm so gauche) and the airiness is breathtaking. disregard the bland furnishings they've used for the 'staging' and imagine all of the wonderful colors and textures you could fill this pad with. oh, and that yellow door has me breathless.

see the listing here.
