Entertaining naturally seems to gravitate toward the charming trellis covered patio and deck area on view from the living and dining rooms and which allows closer inspection of the scenic woodlands and gorgeous views of Mt. Tamalpais and beyond - a fitting hallmark of the poignant loveliness that reigns here. Idyllic hiking and biking trails nearby invite exploration all while enjoying the picturesque serenity and diverse recreational activities that make Marin County one of the most desirable places to call home.

Nestled between the slopes of Mount Tamalpais and the marshlands of San Francisco Bay, Corte Madera is home to excellent schools and parks and all the expected urban amenities, making it a great place to raise a family in Marin County.
While the malls provide great shopping, there's more to Corte Madera than retailers and easy access to San Francisco. Civic organizations donate the flower baskets that hang on almost every lamppost in town and coordinate the town's blowout 4th of July Parade. Corte Madera is home to MarinScapes, the annual art show that has raised more than $1 million dollars for Buckelew Programs, which helps fight mental illness.
Little Leaguers take full advantage of the spacious, well-tended parks and ball fields. Families have been enjoying the relaxed atmosphere and delicious Italian country cooking at Benissimo Restaurant & Bar since 1987. And Corte Madera can claim Book Passage, an independent bookstore with a busy calendar of classes, workshops, and author readings that bring in literary luminaries.
