With its sunny weather and central Marin County location, Greenbrae is a big draw for homebuyers who want close proximity to abundant open space along with the amenities of a major metropolitan area. In close proximity to the Larkspur Landing ferry terminal and about 20 miles from downtown San Francisco, Greenbrae is a convenient enclave for Marin County commuters.
Greenbrae began as a model community, planned and developed by late builder Niels Schultz in the 1940s. Great care was taken to retain the original oak trees that graced its rolling hillsides. Many homes in the community offer lushly landscaped private yards and lovely views of San Francisco Bay, Corte Madera Creek, and Mount Tamalpais. Homes in Greenbrae’s flats are a short stroll to neighborhood parks, bike paths, and the Bon Air Center. Greenbrae’s waterfront condos combine natural beauty with easy living.
The 2,574-foot peak of Mount Tamalpais provides a dramatic backdrop for the community. The mountain’s miles of trails wind through redwood groves, while oak woodlands invite hikers of all abilities. A multi use path ambles beside Corte Madera Creek, giving Greenbrae’s residents a welcome place to stretch their legs and observe wood ducks and egrets.
