Sun Valley Real Estate Market

The Sun Valley / Forbes / Fairhills neighborhoods encompass the area directly northwest of downtown San Rafael.

Real estate in Sun Valley is diverse in character, with architectural styles changing as the neighborhood developed. Subdivision began in the late 1800s through the early 1900s. Most building, however, occurred after World War II with mid-century homes being constructed through the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s.

Mid-century modern homes are prevalent in Sun Valley East/Sun Valley West, Rafael Highlands, and Racquet Club Estates. Architecture that is more contemporary can be found in newer areas including Grove Hill and Shannon Lane.
