About 12781 Sir Francis Drake Blvd

The Bellwether Building is an iconic, historic building that is the heart of the town of Inverness. The property is not comparable to other Marin County properties thanks to its irreplaceable location, history and uses. Inverness has very limited commercial zoning and is the gateway to the Point Reyes National Seashore, which hosts more than 2.5 million visitors a year.

The building was re-roofed in 2006. This work included plywood underlayment in areas without and new roof drain systems in areas that had been problems in the past. The septic system has been upgraded with a new sand filter disposal field (in addition to the existing leach field), a 1500-gallon grease trap and new pump station. Other upgrades have been the replacement of the second floor deck and various windows, interior and exterior paint and more.

The upstairs two-bedroom apartment is currently rented as residential on a month-to-month basis but can be used for residential, commercial or vacation rental.

Inverness Properties LLC acquired the historic Bellwether Building in downtown Inverness in September 2001. Previous to our purchase the Plant family owned the property since 1972. The original building was built in 1900 with a major upgrade and new additions in 1985. The Bellwether Building has become the heart of the village of Inverness. The post office is where locals chat while gathering their mail. The thriving Saltwater Oyster Depot and the Depot Café are busy with both locals and visitors, thanks to its fine food and reviews. Despite its local nature, the complex is on the busy road to the Point Reyes National Seashore beaches and the Point Reyes lighthouse.
