The unincorporated area of Greenbrae, which borders Larkspur to the south, is a model community planned and developed by builder Niels Schultz in the 1940's. With its generally moderate temperatures, persistent sunny days, and beautifully landscaped subdivisions, Greenbrae can feel like a small town paradise. This model community was built to support all the needs of the residents in the 6,000 or so housing units including shopping facilities, schools, a state-of-the-art hospital (Marin General) and churches. Special effort was taken to preserve the many oaks that grace the hills of Greenbrae, creating a peaceful seclusion for the single-family homes with hillside views of the bay, Corte Madera, and Mt. Tamalpais. The easy three minute drive to the Larkspur Landing Ferry Terminal and being only sixteen miles from San Francisco make this an accessible home town for those that commute. This town's housing turnover is one of the lowest in the county, with many residents having been here for over twenty years. It is easy to see why when everything a family could need is always close to home. This community is easily becoming one of Marin County's most desirable places to live.
