Many residents are artists, tech workers, inventors and authors. The Sausalito houseboat colony includes more than 400 floating homes on Richardson Bay. This community evolved from the free-spirited artists, shipbuilders and writers who lived aboard arks, informally anchored in San Francisco Bay beginning in the 1800s.
Probably no community has easier access to the beautiful trails of Marin Headlands than Sausalito. On weekends, Sausalito residents can be found going out for a hike or bike ride, sailing in the bay, or perhaps meeting friends in a local café.
Sausalito real estate ranges from large, custom homes clinging to forested hillsides to small condominiums. Many homes have spectacular views of San Francisco and Angel Island.
