Corte Madera Homes For Sale

Welcome to your best Corte Madera real estate resource as well as all homes on the market in Marin County. Conveniently located just a few miles south of bustling San Rafael and only right down the street from nearby Larkspur, the Central Marin County town of Corte Madera is seemingly close to everything, which is among one of the many reasons why it's widely thought of as a top destination for today's suburban home buyers to consider. The name "Corte Madera" essentially translates to "chop wood" in Spanish, which was derived from the area's high output of lumber back in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Since then, however, Corte Madera has grown far beyond the once-thriving lumber industry and is now where over 9,000 people call home. Two major shopping outlets near the center of town attract people from all over Marin County and the city's easy access to two major highways makes traveling into both San Francisco and Oakland fairly quick and easy, ultimately making it a great spot for anyone who frequently commutes into either city.

Corte Madera Real Estate Market

Housing in Corte Madera is moderately priced compared to some other areas in Marin. With about 4000 homes in the area, there are many price ranges and architectural styles. Homes in western Corte Madera tend to be older, ranch-style homes, small cottages, and charming Victorians. Bayside (east) Corte Madera has a mix of older and newer homes, both single-family dwellings and condos.

Corte Madera is filled with quiet residential streets with homes that mostly all feature incredible curb appeal, only adding to the appeal and desirability of the community as a whole. Ranch style homes priced at just over $1 million are common all throughout Corte Madera, but you'll also find a nice selection of high-end single-family homes in the area that commonly exceed $3 and $4 million. Just recently, a 7-bedroom, 14-bathroom home hit the Corte Madera real estate market for $25 million, although it's pretty rare to see homes that expensive in this particular part of Marin County.

Corte Madera Community Amenities

The centrally located village of Corte Madera may well be one of the more captivating towns in Marin County. Bordered by open spaces, mountains, and the bay, Corte Madera exemplifies the easy, outdoor, California-living lifestyle. As you enter the town on Tamalpais Drive, you are treated to an extraordinary view of Mount Tamalpais. Corte Madera's beautiful surroundings, friendly neighborhoods, and an easy commute to just about everywhere, make it a popular place to live.

Shopping reigns supreme in Corte Madera. Corte Madera draws shoppers from all over Marin County. Nordstrom and Macy's anchor The Village at Corte Madera, a beautiful outdoor mall with fountains and a small, toddler playground. Town Center, on the west side of Highway 101, is a nicely designed mall with a large variety of shops and lots of family friendly restaurants.

As alluded to above, the two major shopping centers in Corte Madera are probably the primary highlights in town in terms of amenities and attractions. Called the Town Center at Corte Madera and The Village at Corte Madera, there's certainly no shortage of major retail brands, restaurants, and luxury shopping options at either complex, and their location right next door to each other also makes getting to and from either spot pretty quick and easy, especially given their location off Highway 101. The Corte Madera Marsh State Marine Park also occupies much of the city's waterfront, which continues to be a great spot to enjoy an easy bike ride or hike.
