Greenbrae

Greenbrae began as a model community, planned and developed by late builder Niels Schultz in the 1940s.

Welcome to Greenbrae

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.

Residents often stop by the Bon Air Center for a morning cup of coffee at Peet’s or a fresh bagel before heading off to work. On a sunny afternoon, you’ll find dozens of shoppers lingering at Bon Air’s outdoor tables over a sandwich from one of the center’s many eateries along with a good book. Greenbrae’s Marin General Hospital adds the extra convenience of nearby physicians and medical facilities.

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 multiuse path ambles beside Corte Madera Creek, giving Greenbrae’s residents a welcome place to stretch their legs and observe wood ducks and egrets.
