These six new homes, arranged in two clusters of three homes each, on 1.38 acres are tucked away in the Sorich Ranch Valley on the east side of San Anselmo, CA.

They can be built using strawbale or conventional construction strategies.

Accessed by a private driveway off of Sacramento Avenue they sit across from the 63 acre Sorich Ranch Park to the west, the 1,172 acre San Rafael/Sleepy Hollow Divide Open Space to the north, and they back on to another nine acres of oak and bay tree studded grassland private open space to the east.

Look over these new house plans. Visualize yourself living here. These homes have so much to offer:

  • The land extends upslope from a private driveway where these homes border on the natural environment affording a commanding view of the valley
  • The homes are part of a six unit small lot, fully approved subdivision designed with privacy and quiet in mind.
  • Excellent local schools: Ross Valley School District/Tamalpais Union High School District
  • Situated next to Draper Farms: a certified organic vegetable farm serving the community since 1994
  • All discretionary approvals by Marin County are complete including design review of each home. Plans for construction are already in process.
  • As an option homes can feature beautifully plastered 18" thick strawbale walls which provide superior sound proofing, fire protection, and thick, energy saving insulation.  Alternately these homes can be convention construction (hopefully LEED compliant).
  • Think green: Plant-based and annually renewable, using baled straw in buildings sequesters a significant amount of carbon from the atmosphere. (strawbuilding.org).
  • Homes are designed to be energy and space efficient by local nationally recognized architecture firm (Arkin Tilt Architects).
  • Ready to build ("shovel ready"); break ground in spring 2020; move in sometime in early 2021.
  • All utilities are readily available at the property: gas, electric, water, sewer, cable, phone, and internet.
  • Customize final details of your home to make it just like you want it to be: kitchen, baths, appliances, colors, floors, trim.
  • Beautifully designed new 1,500 (strawbale) or 1,900 (conventional) square foot homes:
  • two/three bedrooms
