Making a Case for the Small $2M Home

This past week we saw 2 adorable, smaller homes hit the market in Kentfield and Ross.  Like morsels of Belgian chocolate, these two are diminutive (by comparison to neighboring homes) and deliciously satisfying.  In a county with many affluent downsizers, there's demand for smaller homes of high caliber (easier to manage, less landscaping, no stairs). 

The first is a 3BR, on Circle Drive in Ross, listed at $2.1M ($1164.73/sf).  Circle Drive, adjacent to The Branson School, is a private enclave, set back from more used roads, with only a half dozen neighbors. If $2.1M sounds high, consider the 9BR two doors down which recently sold for $8.75M cash.

The 2BR in Kentfield is on Laurel Grove, very near the Ross border. It's listed at $2.195M ($933.65/sf) and is approximately 550sf larger than the 3BR on Circle Dr. It's a spacious home with abundant charm, originally built in 1940. The well manicured grounds includes hydrangea, jasmine, and maple as a backdrop to the pool in the tranquil rear yard.

Both homes wonderfully underscore that small homes can be spectacular. As always -- if you have questions, I'm here to assist.
