The property is a two story commercial condominium built in 2009. Large first and second story windows allow for natural light throughout the
The first floor configuration currently includes a large multipurpose open area with a conference room. The second floor includes two large private offices and additional multipurpose open area. Two large ADA restrooms are on the first floor with an additional restroom on the second floor. Both floors have kitchenettes.
The facility is located on a cul-de-sac directly off of Lakeville Highway and offers easy access to Hwy 101 and Hwy 37, providing a central location for visitors coming from Marin, Sonoma, Solano, and Napa counties. The property enjoys fantastic visibility, sitting at the entrance to the two building complex.

It is also adjacent to the Azure Apartment Homes providing an immediate community touch-point to nearby residents.
Maps of Location
While a major benefit to this property is that the facility is move-in ready and could be immediately used without any changes, some minor renovations are planned. The plan for the first floor is to remove two walls that currently form an existing conference room in order to open up the space into a larger multipurpose space with a flexible room setup. This enlarged space on the first floor would serve as the main sanctuary with an assembly seating capacity of up to 100 people seated comfortably and could be easily re-arranged into a banquet style setup to facilitate fellowship meals. At the same time, an additional bathroom and enclosed kitchenette would be added. Additionally, based on City requirements, we will be upgrading the first floor HVAC system. As for the second floor, the two existing offices would be utilized for the pastor’s office and a conference room.
