This very green home is for a couple now in their nineties, who had long ago bought land near Sausalito on the Marin side of the Golden Gate Bridge. They are only just now finally getting to live here, in a hillside next to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area – one of the Bay Areas more stunning conservation sites – that the two had campaigned to protect beginning in the ’60s.
The wry nomenclature – the Final(ly) House – indicates that it is to be their final home. And that they finally built here. The airy, simple 2,150-square-foot house is set in a 14,000 square foot parcel of land they bought so many decades ago, in the 1960s.
