About our home

Our home is in Kentfield, CA about 8 miles North from downtown San Francisco. We are near beaches both on S.F Bay and at the ocean. Kentfield is a virtually crime free area. Our home is a classic Northern California cottage built in 1924. We have lived here for 30 years, with lots of remodeling but always keeping the style and charm of the house. We have a nice landscaped back yard with a hot tub which is totally private. We have a Nissan Van and a Nissan Altima and you can use either one if we can use your car. The front of the house has stairs but one can enter at the side yard where there are no stairs.
We need to exchange with a home that has no stairs go get to a bedroom; thus we are looking for a one story, a two story with a lift or a two story with a bed room on the first floor. Our house has bed room upstairs and a den with a fold out sofa along with kitchen, breakfast room, living room, dinning room and study. Downstairs (outside entrance and stairs inside from upstairs) is a laundry room as well as another bed room with a sitting room. Sleeping is thus two bed rooms with bed for two in each, plus a fold out sofa which will sleep two. If needed we have an air mattress which can be used in the upstairs study or downstairs sitting room.

We have done home exchanges in the past to Spain and France; have not exchanged for a few years due to press of business but now are semi retired and much more flexible than in the past.
