Tamalpais and is a wonderful blend of contrasts from its rural sprawling hillsides and bay views to its more upscale homes and businesses. Centrally located, Corte Madera is home to two of Marin County’s finest shopping centers: The Town Center and the Village Shopping Center, anchored by Nordstrom and Macy’s with a variety of boutiques and restaurants. It is also home to the Corte Madera Farmers Market and the Corte Madera Women’s Involvement Club and the Corte Madera Community Center. Corte Madera schools are currently very highly ranked by GreatSchools.org
At the turn of the century Corte Madera attracted a number of families from San Francisco who came for the summer. Christmas Tree Hill was subdivided in tiny 25′ x 25′ lots for use as tent sites on the weekends. After the 1906 earthquake, many of these tent sites were used to build permanent homes, where some of the tiny cabins remain to this day. Incorporated in 1916, Corte Madera is situated next to Larkspur and they are often referred to as “Twin Cities” due to their proximity and the fact that they share schools and a police department.
Bordering wetlands and lush open space, there is a strong community commitment to preserving the area’s wildlife and habitat. Birdwatchers flock to the Corte Madera Marsh Ecological Reserve, the Shorebird Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary (map) which provide feeding and nesting areas for migrating birds such as meadowlarks, great egrets, snowy egrets, avocets and sandpipers.
Located just 12 miles north of San Francisco, Corte Madera offers residents a 22-acre recreational park, a historic village square and numerous biking paths. These amenities as well as the area’s central location, moderate home prices, friendly neighborhoods, great schools and easy commute make Corte Madera a popular place to live.
