View today's hottest Greenbrae modern properties for sale and more real estate in Greenbrae below! Greenbrae's big building boom occurred during the late 1940's through the mid 60's. That doesn't necessarily mean, however, that the place is crawling with mid-century modern residential architecture. Somehow the big modern movement, so popular in many areas of Marin County seems to have bypassed Greenbrae.

Most Greenbrae homes are built on the hillsides to the north of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard and feature walls of windows with great bay or valley views. Many of the homes also have the coveted open floor plan that has a kitchen opening up onto the living space. The notable exception to the lack of mid-century modern in Greenbrae are the homes designed by Ed Hageman. Tucked up in the hillsides of Greenbrae, in the quiet areas away from Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, are loads of Hageman ranch-style homes. Ed Hageman earned his designer's stripes through his work with developer Henry Doelger. His work includes rows of houses in San Francisco's Sunset District (made infamous in folk singer Malvina Reynolds' song "Little Boxes"), the crazily designed Westlake district in Daly City, and casual ranch-style homes in Marin County. Hageman worked on several housing tracts in Marin County, working with developers such as Edward Burgar, as well as individual clients.
Neighborhoods in Greenbrae are well manicured and filled with beautiful oak trees. The area south of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard consists mainly of condos and the Bon Air Shopping Center, while the region to the north is more strictly residential, and as you ascend into the hills, the homes become more impressive. If you are looking to move your family into Greenbrae, you should expect to spend a minimum of $1.1M.
