About Alan Flax
I live on the property and love being close to the trails and hills. Originally from New England but landed in the Bay Area many years ago. I worked as a credentialed teacher for some years and then began investing in real estate. I enjoy the company of friends, hiking, dancing, cycling, fine dining, games, being in the water, travel, laughing, doing nothing, good movies, playing guitar and lots of other things.
Alan Flax purchased this House in 2002
Why Alan Flax chose San Anselmo
After looking at dozens of properties I decided to buy this one as soon as I set foot on the decks and took in the beautiful views. It was private, surrounded by nature, yet 5 minutes from two downtown areas.
What makes this House unique
This property was just a little vacation home back in the 1920s but was built into a larger place by previous and owners. Then I made it even bigger and better, adding a pool, sauna, an additional studio apartment, a laundry room and more. There is a creek at the bottom of the property and redwood trees. I love the views of the Open Space hills next to my property.

This place is absolutely gorgeous, and the host was excellent.
On top of the mountain
It's a drive up the mountain from the town. The town itself is small and diverse. Plenty of places to hike, walk, ride a bike, eat and close enough to everywhere else that you can be at San Fran within 30 minutes. I'd stay here again.
didn't realize it was a studio. thought there was a separate bedroom. however, beautifully furnished, killer view, incredible kitchen. nice landlord.
However, hard to find and waaay up a minimountain. little hair-raising especially at night. recommend highly
We really enjoyed our stay. Property was exactly as represented and Alan was friendly and helpful. It is more of a retreat than just a room. Drive in is a little challenging the first time, but once you know where you're going it's kind of fun.
The house sits way up the mountain with incredible views. Cool at night and warmer during the days. Perfect for a single or couple. We found the Studio to be charming and great getaway for two weeks. Very central to visit the city and wine country and all points in between. Alan was a great host! Nice to have all the appliances available as well. We didn’t use the pool or hot tub this time but were available to us if we choose to use it. The drive up to the house was interesting to us but after a few times we got comfortable with the winding turns. Definitely recommend this house and owner.
