A home in the highly desired neighborhood of Sausalito, California, has recently been listed as for sale. The Bay Area home was built in a country cottage style, but has a number of modern technologies and systems installed to provide ultimate comfort. 
The house, located at 421 Pine Street, was built in 1899. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that a number of renovations and improvements have been added to the property to maximize the comfort a modern homeowner would feel in the space. 
Some of the cosmetic characteristics of the two-story house includes a box-beam ceiling, brick fireplace and board and batten walls walls in the living room. 
"The fireplace and bath in the master bedroom make it a great, cozy space for those cold and rainy days in the winter," listing agent Jennifer Earl told the news source. "Also, nothing beats the street window view in the spring, when the cherry tree is at its peak bloom."
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the house has been outfitted with high R-value windows and radiant floor heating. The combination of the two systems reduces a homeowner's utility bills. Radiant floor heating is exceptionally energy efficient and when combined with well-insulated windows, the warmth remains inside the home for additional cost savings.
Radiant floor heating fills the home with comfort and warmth. Any potential homebuyer may find that the heat provided by the system allows them to enjoy the views of the ocean in any season. Instead of turning away from the windows during the winter due to a cold chill radiating from the windows, a homeowner can stand right next to the windows, still feeling warm and comfortable.
