Kentfield Real Estate Market

Most homes for sale in Kentfield offer ample space and privacy, and in many instances are set far back from whatever roadway they happened to located along. In general, the large, wooded lots that tend to be so common all throughout the Kentfield area truly offer a pleasant country vibe that's harder to capture in larger communities nearby like San Rafael, or even Larkspur or Corte Madera. But if you feel like Kentfield may be a great fit to one day call home, also keep in mind it's one of the more expensive markets in Marin County, with single-family homes ranging anywhere from the mid to upper $800,000s all the way up to over $10 million for a mansion with a view.

Neighborhoods are wooded and homes are gracious. There are several neighborhoods in Kentfield. Del Mesa and Laurel Grove are exclusive areas, with homes that are either modest, lovely, and expensive or grand, lovely, and more expensive. Kent Woodlands is another prestigious neighborhood with gracious homes, mostly ranch style, on comfortably sized lots. On Kent Avenue and in Kentfield Gardens you'll find more modest (but still expensive) mid-century homes, many of which have been remodeled. For those who enjoy the water, there are even a few homes near the lagoon that extends into Kentfield.

Kentfield Community Amenities

Surrounded by beautiful, green, rolling hills, Kentfield is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, but only a short commute from just about everywhere. With the San Rafael-Richmond Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Larkspur Landing ferry service only minutes away, the East Bay and San Francisco are both easily accessible. Destinations within Marin County are even closer. There are few services and little shopping available in Kentfield, but nearby Greenbrae and Corte Madera have just about everything you could need.

Kentfield has a population of over 6,500 people today, but most of the area landscape is filled with residential development and very few amenities and attractions within the town's boundaries. Situated on the south end of town is Baltimore Canyon Open Space Preserve, which has challenging yet fun hiking trails and awesome views of the bay front as you reach higher ground. Positioned along Magnolia Avenue and College Avenue, which essentially turn into the same street at one point, is a fairly pleasant mix of small retail shops, cafes, convenience stores, schools, and other small businesses that help give locals some area shopping and dining, but plenty of additional options are also just a short drive away, especially in San Rafael and Corte Madera.

Situated at the base of Mt. Tamalpais, Kentfield is primarily a quiet residential area. With the Baltimore Canyon Preserve nearby, Creekside Park extending into Kentfield, and lots of tree shaded streets, there are plenty of places to ride a bike, take an afternoon hike, or a quiet evening stroll. Summers are warm and pleasant, and miss out on most of the famous San Francisco fog; however, with and average rainfall of 47 inches, Kentfield has the reputation of being one of the wettest spots in the Bay Area - and it actually had a trace of snow in 1972!
