Stinson Beach Homes For Sale

Welcome to your best Stinson Beach real estate resource as well as all homes on the market in Marin County. Stinson Beach is a long coastal community that sits about two-and-a-half miles from Bolinas and only about 20 miles northwest of San Francisco. Thanks to its relatively short drive from the city and of course because of its pristine white sandy beach that seemingly stretches on forever, Stinson Beach is easily one of Northern California's best swimming beaches to visit, and also one of the more popular day trips for Bay Area residents to embark on regardless of where you live in the region. Situated right along Shoreline Highway is Stinson Beach's main drag, which features a few small shops and cafes, a market, and of course a local surf shop for all swimming and surfing needs. The terrain surrounding the Stinson Beach community is also hilly and incredibly scenic, allowing for most Stinson Beach homes for sale to feature some pretty awesome views of the Northern California coastline. For more information on Stinson Beach properties for sale or to schedule a home tour, contact your Bay Area real estate experts today! Read more about Stinson Beach real estate.

Stinson Beach Real Estate Market

Many homes for sale in the Stinson Beach-Bolinas housing market are ocean front properties just steps from the beach. Potential buyers can find homes set up in the hills with expansive lagoon and ocean sunset views. Whether tastes run to ultimate luxury or an affordable fixer, a craftsman cottage, cabin, or a vacation home, the odds are good any homebuyer can find it in Stinson Beach-Bolinas. As might be expected, Stinson Beach is a red hot destination for vacation home buyers to consider, but only if they're prepared to spend a considerable amount of money. Most Stinson Beach singe-family residences with views of the ocean start in the $1.6 to $1.8 million range, but ultra-luxe properties with sweeping ocean views and ample living space sometimes reach or exceed $4 or $5 million. But as a small community that has a population of just over 600 people, expect inventory to be fairly limited. And in terms of style, most houses in Stinson Beach has a pleasant cottage or traditional look and feel, and buyers who tour the area might also see a few bungalow-style homes on the market scattered throughout the hillside as well.

Because of its proximity to San Francisco, Stinson Beach is a popular vacation spot, and many people from San Francisco own vacation homes in Stinson; however Stinson Beach is not just for tourists. With over 600 homes in the Stinson Beach area, there is something to suit just about every taste, whether buyers are looking for a permanent home or a vacation home. Stinson Beach also offers many conveniences, including a library, post office, medical center, and a full service grocery store. If small and laid-back is more to style, the village of Bolinas just might be appealing. Bolinas has long been a haven to poets and writers and artists. In the late 1960's and early 70's, Bolinas was home to a generation of Beat Poets, many who were active in the San Francisco scene. This group, sometimes called the Bolinas Group, gave Bolinas its somewhat quirky, Bohemian reputation, which still lingers today. Architectural style in Bolinas reflects the independent nature of its residents. Whatever buyers might be looking for, from traditional Victorian to geodesic dome — and everything in between — there is a good chance you can find it in Bolinas.

Stinson Beach Community Amenities

Stretched along a beautiful sandy strand, Stinson Beach has long been a popular destination for tourists. Early visitors to Stinson Beach took the train to a nearby inn, and then rode the stagecoach to the beach. Today it's a lot easier to get to, but Stinson Beach still retains the same feeling of being "someplace special" that it did in earlier times.

Shakespeare at Stinson is an annual Marin tradition. In just over a decade it has grown from a "backyard" garden production to a touring company with a permanent home in Stinson, just 300 feet from the beach. Other popular events include the Dipsea Race, which ends at Stinson Beach, the Stinson Beach Trail Run, and the Stinson Beach Marathon.

On Friday and Saturday nights the action in Bolinas is at Smiley's Schooner Saloon. One of the oldest continuously operating bars in California, Smiley's offers live entertainment as well as a crowd that knows how to have a good time! The problem is, if potential buyers don't know where Bolinas is, they might not find it. Over the years, the residents of Bolinas have been persistent in taking down any signs pointing the way to Bolinas from Highway 1.
