Star Route

Sited between the Bolinas Lagoon and the Point Reyes National Seashore, where the unspoiled beauty of nature abounds, this magnificent estate features three residences, an office, greenhouse and other outbuildings that span over 56 acres across four parcels of varying terrain and differing microclimates. Savor the unparalleled views of surrounding vistas, the divine aroma of ancient seascapes and the bounty of thriving flora from this historic homestead.

Although atypical and somewhat unconventional, the historic residence at 85 Olema Bolinas Road, originally built as a Druid’s Hall in 1897 is nothing short of breathtaking. While the California gothic façade, complete with white picket fence, lends to the rural charm of the property, the incredibly high ceilings, windows, and doors that soar to cathedral heights, as well as the delicate wood ornamentation throughout the interior create a sophisticated and bright monumental space from which to appreciate the timeless beauty of life in Bolinas.

Characterized by 45 acres of fertile farmland, 95 Olema Bolinas Road also features a farm office, agriculture worker housing, various sheds and the Farm House, a warm and inviting home built around a retired caboose from the Western Pacific Railroad, which was brought to the property as the original residence of the current owner. Decades of visionary custodianship of the land and several water sources – pond, 2 wells, Pine Gulch Creek – have ensured the health and continued lifetime of the thriving interdependent ecosystems.

Be it the lagoon, marshland, farmland, creek-side underbrush, hillside or atop the mesa meadow above the fields of growing produce, every corner of this property breathes life and speaks of harmony with nature.

Floor Plans



The wide-open, picture-perfect spaces of West Marin include the coastal communities of Stinson Beach and Bolinas; the dairy farms of Olema, Point Reyes Station, Tomales, and Nicasio; and the forest glens of Lagunitas, San Geronimo, and Woodacre.
Uniting all West Marin communities is a love for the land. That’s not going to change soon, thanks to the efforts of Marin Agricultural Land Trust, an organization dedicated to preserving farmland through voluntary conservation easements.
Outdoor recreation ranges from surfing at Bolinas and Stinson Beach to mountain biking on Mount Tamalpais and the annual Dipsea foot race to Stinson Beach. West Marin is an area of unrivaled natural beauty, one that can lay claim to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Muir Beach State Bark, Stinson Beach State Park, Muir Woods National Monument, and Point Reyes National Seashore.
Of course it’s not all about the outdoors in West Marin. Devotees of inner peace turn to the Green Gulch FarmZen Center in Muir Beach and Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre. And for those who need to feed the belly as well as the soul, Point Reyes Station has become a destination for the locavore movement. The town is home to Marin Sun Farms, purveyor of ethically raised and butchered meat, and Cowgirl Creamery, which makes its award-winning cheeses using organic milk from nearby Straus Family Creamery.
