An ideal community made up of families and empty nesters, Corte Madera has successfully combined mainstream shopping (The Village and Town Center) with a small-town feel. Locally known as the Twin Cities, Corte Madera and Larkspur share abundant charm, warm weather, a police department, and a school district, though eastern parts of Corte Madera fall in Tiburon’s Reed Union School District. From the open space and flat lots of the east side and Corte Madera Gardens to the tree-lined, hillside neighborhoods of Chapman Park and Christmas Tree Hill, there’s a variety of flavors to explore. Home prices range from $700,000 for a condo to $4mm for a luxury home.
With a great commute and award-winning public schools, including Redwood High School, Hall Middle School, and Neil Cummins or The Cove Elementary, Corte Madera thrives in perfect balance. Private school options include; Marin Country Day and Marin Montessori, Corte Madera Montessori, Kids on the Hill. Like most Marin towns, it’s a paradise for hikers and bikers. Perhaps the largest public park in S. Marin, Corte Madera’s Town Park offers a central hub for Sunday soccer, birthday parties, soccer fields, summer camps, a skate park, tennis courts, and a playground that is second to none. For lunch, try Blue Barn, Philz, or Pete’s for coffee, Burma Town for dinner, and the Bay Club for your workouts.
