Every home in Greenbrae begins with the valuable advantages of good schools, consistently warm weather, and an easy commute via car, ferry, or even bicycle to San Francisco. Bike and pedestrian pathways reduce traffic to shopping, restaurants, theaters, and other community resources. Walkers, runners, rowers and bicyclists exercising along the serene waterfront terrain create a lively, youthful community feel. Homes here feature some of the best views of Mount Tamalpais in the whole county.
Originally a dairy ranch, postwar Greenbrae was transformed into a model of successful urban planning with the development of the Bon Air shopping center. As neighborhoods were built, special care was taken to preserve the native oak trees, which are still features of the beautiful natural landscape. Marin General hospital and other top-quality clinics and medical resources are conveniently located in the heart of the community.
Some of the Bay Area’s most well-known citizens, including Senator Barbara Boxer, raised their families in tasteful yet unpretentious Greenbrae.
