Mill Valley Real Estate Market
Mill Valley real estate is one of the most expensive markets in northern California, with listings here commonly priced well into the millions. Local homes feature a wide variety of luxury checklist items, such as custom swimming pools, wrap-around decks, and spacious forested properties, sometimes at the edge of a narrow wooded canyon.
Bungalows, luxury estates, and mid-century modern stunners define the real estate market in Mill Valley, which also contributes to why it's such a hotbed for suburban home buyers in today's market. Some of Mill Valley's most expensive homes, which often includes most newly built homes in the area, tend to jump up into the $5 to $6 million price range, and sometimes even higher. If you're lucky, you might also see a listing or two with absolutely incredible views of the San Francisco skyline and the Oakland Bay Bridge, but expect to pay a premium for such spectacular sight lines. Smaller homes and cottages in Mill Valley generally start at just over $1 million, but you might also see a fixer-upper every now and then priced somewhere between $600,000 and $800,000+.
Mill Valley Community Amenities
Mill Valley has a rich arts heritage, and has been home to many musicians, authors, and actors, including Jack Kerouac, Gary Snyder, and Jerry Garcia. While today's residents are generally less well-known, Mill Valley preserves its famous heritage in a variety of annual festivals, including the Mountain Play, the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival, and the Mill Valley Film Festival.
One of the reasons Mill Valley became a destination for poets and rock stars, and later for luxury real estate and modern buyers, is its scenic location at the north end of Richardson Bay. Mill Valley stretches north and west from the water, its carefully-planned cityscape much larger than in most small cities. The community is bordered to the west by Mt Tamalpais State Park and Golden Gate National Recreation Area, two of California's most beautiful coastal recreation areas.
