Planned and developed by builder Niels Schultz in the 1940s as a model community, Greenbrae offers sunny weather, a central Marin location, and close proximity to abundant open space. A short drive from the Larkspur Landing Ferry Terminal and only sixteen miles from downtown San Francisco, Greenbrae is a convenient locale for City commuters.
On a weekend afternoon, Greenbrae residents can be seen strolling along Corte Madera Creek with children in tow, stopping to observe an egret or blue heron. Others stop by Bon Air Shopping Center to linger over a cup of coffee with a friend or simply grab a sandwich from one of its many eateries before heading out for a hike. Bon Air also offers the convenience of a full-service grocery store, pharmacy, apparel and gift stores and banking services. Outdoor gathering areas feature comfortable seating, fire pits, Wi-Fi and family-friendly activity areas, including a bocce ball court.
