West Marin Real Estate
Rolling hills, redwood forests, and miles of spectacular shoreline define West Marin. Rural, agrarian, and secluded, western Marin County is a place where time seems to move a little more slowly. It is a popular vacation spot, both for day-tripping locals and out-of-towners looking for some west coast solitude. This secluded area is also the perfect spot for homeowners looking for a relaxed, laid-back Marin County lifestyle.
West Marin begins where central and southern Marin end. From the south, access to the Marin coast is along the Shoreline Highway, which runs through the seaside communities of Muir Beach, Stinson Beach, Bolinas, Inverness, and Marshall. Also along Highway 1 are Olema, Point Reyes Station and, slightly off the beaten path, Dillon Beach. Nestled in the towering redwood groves along Sir Francis Drake Boulevard are the small West Marin towns of Woodacre, San Geronimo, Forest Knolls, and Lagunitas. Finally, just west of the Lucas Valley, is Nicasio - a region of rolling hills, ranchlands, and home to Skywalker Ranch.
Western Marin County offers a little bit of just about everything that characterizes Marin. The climate is comfortable year round: it is seldom too hot in the summertime or too cold in the winter. Open spaces, miles of trails for hiking and biking, beaches, wildlife sanctuaries, Zen views, and sweeping vistas are all a part of what makes this wonderful part of the world such a popular spot for living and playing.
