Marinwood Real Estate Market

As San Rafael's northernmost neighborhood, Marinwood is a quiet suburban community of 1900 acres bordered by 800 acres of open space. Shopping and services are conveniently nearby and easy access to the freeway make commuting a breeze.

Development in Marinwood began in the late 1950s, which means that the mid-century modern design aesthetic is well represented and includes a tract of about 375 Eichler homes. These Lower Lucas Valley / Marinwood Eichlers vary in condition, but can represent a great value to the Eichler enthusiast interested in renovation. The area has a wonderful heritage of modern architecture in San Rafael.

Most homes in Marinwood are single-family properties, although there are some condominiums in the area, including new units that are being developed as part of the Marinwood Plaza project.

Marinwood Community Amenities

Marinwood is also referred to as Lower Lucas Valley. The community center offers year-round recreational programs for young and old alike, including ski trips, a swim team, foreign language instruction, travel opportunities, and summer camp for kids. Two public parks provide fun for neighborhood children, and the surrounding open spaces are great for hiking and biking.

Marinwood is in the highly regarded Dixie School District. Youngsters in the area attend either Mary Silveira Elementary or Dixie Elementary, while older children attend Miller Creek Middle School.
