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 1800s and early 1900s. 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 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.
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.
