Breathlessly billed in the ad as being “reminiscent of a luxury boutique hotel in the Greek Isle,” this Spanish-Mediterranean-ish charmer in Mill Valley feels more like a slice of circa-1920s Hollywood Hills rather than a Greece getaway. Geographic disputes aside, this hillside home is quite a showstopper.

Featuring four beds, five baths, and approximately 3,510 square feet, 300 Summit Avenue, which has been lightly renovated with its original integrity intact, comes with arched doorways, hardwood floors, pool, old growth trees, something gloriously called a shade garden, bocce call court, and outdoor fireplace.

There’s even a detached one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest house. Also, almost every room opens to either a balcony or the grounds.

Last sold in 1986 for $385,000, it returns to the market asking $2,995,000.
