Sunlit Mediterranean-Style Home 34 Miramar Ave, San Rafael
Here is your sunlit Mediterranean-style home that everyone admires, enjoying south facing views across charming and convenient Gerstle Park.

Welcome to your Tuscan Home in Gerstle Park!

Proud owners have extensively rebuilt and remodeled this home in the 1990’s and again in 2004 with updated bathrooms, kitchen, a top floor with two bedrooms, family room and full bath, and an attached garage. Colorful painted tiles, saltillo tile floors, rustic alder wood trim, original wrought iron fixtures, and a red tile roof contribute to the old world feeling.
