Terra Linda is noted for its mid-century modern aesthetic. Ranch and modernist style homes are the hallmark of the community with homes by such mid-century notables as Alliance Homes, Kenney, and Eichler. There are, in fact, two separate Eichler tracts in Terra Linda. Terra Linda South features 225 homes built by Joseph Eichler between 1958 and 1960. A larger Eichler community can be found in Terra Linda North with 625 Eichler homes that were built between 1955 and 1961 and include several two-story Eichlers.
Terra Linda is a great neighborhood for the mid-century modern enthusiast. Some homes are move-in ready, while others are somewhat more of a bargain and offer the opportunity for renovation.
Although Terra Linda is primarily a residential area, it is a self-sufficient community with plenty of conveniences, including the Northgate Mall and several smaller shopping centers stretched out along Las Gallinas Avenue and Freitas Parkway.
Embraced on three sides by the open spaces of the Terra Linda-Sleepy Hollow Divide, Terra Linda is a popular community with lots to do. Whether it is hiking the trails of the surrounding hillsides, swimming on the local swim team, or shopping at the mall, there is something for everyone. The bi-weekly Farmers Market at the Marin Civic Center is a popular destination for fun and food. Terra Linda has parks and playgrounds for the kids, playing fields and courts for sports, and a Community Center that offers fun activities and classes for residents of all ages and interests.
Most elementary school children living in Terra Linda attend Vallecito School, which is part of the award-winning Dixie School District. Older students attend nearby Miller Creek Middle School, while high schoolers attend Terra Linda High School. Terra Linda is also home to a well-respected private Montessori school, which is located in the Santa Margarita Valley.
