Serenity, charm and elegance come to mind when one enters through the gate to 609 C Street, nestled in the highly sought-after Gerstle Park neighborhood of San Rafael. One is greeted with a landscaped front yard, a flagstone walkway, a small level lawn and a welcoming deck. Originally built as a house, the property now has a legal in-law/accessory dwelling unit with separate gas and electric meters. This Craftsman offers a blend of modern comforts and classic architectural details. There is a lovely 2 bedroom / 1 bath unit upstairs with a formal dining room. The downstairs unit is a 1 bedroom / 1 bath, with newer kitchen and bath. Upstairs has newer double pane windows, wood floors, built-ins and classic moldings. The bathroom has newer tiled shower, fixtures and vanity. The roof, gutters and some siding were just replaced in 2023. The lower level studio/storage area is terrific for a gym, art studio or office. One could potentially combine this space with the lower level for an additional bedroom. Close to shopping & entertainment: 3 easy blocks to 4th Street/ Downtown with a ton of amenities. Gerstle Park is just a short walk to the West.
