WELCOME TO OUR 2014 home issue. We kick things off this month with a story about the quest for the perfect bachelor pad.
Laura Hilgers writes about a Tiburon architect who was hired to replace an aging ’40s- or
’50s-era home with something modern that
capitalized on the views. As it happened, plans
changed when the homeowner got married.
The result is a house the former bachelor and
his wife are proud to call a home — but with
plenty of space reserved for poker night.
Next up, since we know you need to actually get off the freeways and in the front door
before you can enjoy your home, Jim Wood
takes a comprehensive look at SMART — the
commuter train between Sonoma County
Airport and the Larkspur Landing ferry terminal that is being built now. He finds the
train is only two years from completion and
details all you need to know about its route,
capacity, speed and more.
In other home-related coverage, we look
at the lack of vacant lots in Marin and the
reasons the ones that do exist have been
that the train
is only two
and details all
you need to
sitting for some time. We follow that with
10 tips to consider before you remodel and a
few easy things you can do to increase your
home’s curb appeal.
Up front we reveal the hottest spots for
Easter egg hunts, take a look at this year’s
One Book One Marin selection, get into pastel clothes and accessories and introduce you
to a champion kiteboarder, a bike parts guru
and a clean-energy star.
In Destinations, we learn why truffles may
be the next big thing in the wine country, and
Appellations highlights refreshing warm-weather wines, spa therapies and other Napa
and Sonoma treats.
It’s spring, a time of renewal, so enjoy
our April content and the focus on all things
home. After reading you’ll be ready to grab the
hammer and the drill (or perhaps call a local
professional) and get to work.
