West Marin Real Estate Market

Real estate in the West Marin housing market includes coastal property with sandy beaches, cozy homes set in redwood forests, and large ranches with acreage. It runs the gamut from funky vacation homes in Inverness to chic custom homes in Stinson Beach's exclusive Sea Drift, and upscale Muir Beach properties perched above the Pacific. Farther inland, family-oriented communities in the San Geronimo Valley have a woodsy, rural feel, while properties in Nicasio generally are ranch style estates with acreage. Real estate in Nicasio does, in fact, come with a hefty price tag — Nicasio consistently ranks in Forbes top 25 most expensive zip codes. Seashore, forests, and ranchlands — West Marin real estate is as diverse as it is beautiful.

West Marin Community Amenities

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.

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.
