Greenbrae Real Estate
Greenbrae, a now-bustling central Marin community and the gateway to the lush Ross Valley, borders Larkspur, Kentfield, Ross and San Rafael. It’s popular for people who commute to San Francisco (10 miles to the Golden Gate) and the East Bay (2.5 miles from the Richmond Bridge).
Greenbrae is also a top pick because of its award-winning public schools, close-knit community and pleasant micro-climate. Many homes have water views.
Greenbrae was designed in the 1940s as a neighborhood of custom homes and oak trees, set into the hills on winding streets with Spanish names. For the era, there was an unusual emphasis on saving trees, design, setbacks, landscaped medians and open areas.
