Three Levels of Bliss in
Jennifer Garner’s Fictional Neighborhood
& A Kitchen Worthy of a Celebrity Chef
38 Liberty Dock in Sausalito is a rare treasure, a floating home that “checks all the boxes” for views, comfort, luxury, boating and water sports. Three levels of living space are crowned by the historic antique pilot house of an early 20th century ship.
This home is located in a deep-water berth just seven minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge, not far from where Jennifer Garner recently filmed the AppleTV series “The Last Thing He Told Me.” It features a private landing for your Boston Whaler, kayaks and boards (for your active lifestyle), along with perfect spots to lie in the sun, read a book and sip a cold glass of joy (for your less-active moments).
The sweeping, subtly-cantilevered deck offers wide-ranging views across the bay to Belvedere, the Tiburon peninsula and Strawberry. The same gorgeous views light up the living room and dining area.
Remodeled with impeccable taste and high-quality finishes throughout, this home features new French oak floors, skylights, a jetted tub and very high-end appliances, including a front-loading washer and dryer. The ceiling fan and light fixtures are likewise upgraded and stunning.
The wide-open floor plan offers bay-front views for the host as you prep in the gourmet kitchen, and for your guests relaxing on the bar stools, sipping cosmos and sharing stories and laughter while the sun sets in the Marin Headlands. Two of the bedrooms share those bay-front views, and the third-floor “pilot house” is perfect for an office, third bedroom or even a nursery.

The modern Sausalito houseboat community began after World War II, when artists, boatbuilders and skilled artisans converted vessels abandoned by the U.S. Navy at the Marinship shipyards into floating homes. The fully-restored pilot house on this floating home is one example of their craftsmanship.
38 Liberty Dock is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to live on the bay, not just near it. Sausalito floating home specialist Michele Affronte is excited to share this unique new listing, with its historic pilot house and elegant finishes throughout the home.
As a long-time resident, Michele understands the warm and supportive culture of Sausalito’s houseboat community, and why so many people settle here. She’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have about this exciting lifestyle and this beautiful home.

This beautiful Floating Home is berthed in the heart of Sausalito’s famous houseboat community, just north of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County, California. This is the area where Otis Redding wrote the classic song, “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay” in 1967, making this one of the most prestigious houseboat addresses in the world, and where Jennifer Garner recently filmed the AppleTV series “The Last Thing He Told Me.”
65 years ago movie star Sterling Hayden and philosopher Alan Watts held their versions of the Paris salons of Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso and F. Scott Fitzgerald in this area. Although those large events — and the bohemian vessels where they were held — are now long gone, residents still entertain neighbors and host discussions on a smaller, more intimate scale.
Today the neighborhood is a fascinating mix of people, with residents ranging from artists to entrepreneurs and from pilots to interior designers.
A small store, a deli that’s been featured on TV restaurant shows, and a highly-rated casual restaurant are just a block or two away. A shopping center and regional transit hub for bus service are located several blocks away.
Just two blocks from the entrance to South Forty Dock (sometimes abbreviated as “S. 40 Dock”) lies the Mill Valley-Sausalito Multi-Use Path. To the north your bike ride leads to the trails of Mt. Tamalpais. To the south you can ride across the Golden Gate Bridge to San Francisco.
A few blocks to the south are a supermarket, the post office, an art gallery supported by over 100 local artists, and a wide range of coffee shops, diners and restaurants including American, Chinese, Himalayan, Indian, Mexican, Middle Eastern and Pizza.
