Please scroll down to see Larkspur homes for sale or continue reading for more information on this popular town. Halfway between Sausalito and San Rafael and nestled between Mt. Tamalpais and the Bay, you will find the beautiful historic town of Larkspur. This upper middle class community is over 100 years old, becoming a town in 1908. Downtown Larkspur is officially listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is reminiscent of small towns of the turn-of-the-century. Fashionable shops, cafes and restaurants line downtown’s Magnolia Avenue along with dozens of historic buildings including the newly restored Lark Theater. Its residents have been quite successful in preserving the small-town ambience.
Larkspur is divided into two distinct areas adjoining Highway 101. Its historic downtown is west of Highway 101, and an old quarry area, now known as Larkspur Landing is to the east of the highway and is home to the Golden Gate Ferry Terminal providing ferry rides to the San Francisco Ferry Building and to the San Francisco Giants home games. Across from the Larkspur ferry is the the trendy and popular Marin Country Mart which offers upscale shopping, dining, yoga and a weekly farmer’s market. There are currently discussions to possibly extend the under-construction SMART Train to the Larkspur ferry terminal from its current planned ending point in San Rafael however funding has not been secured as of this writing.
Larkspur offers a variety of housing including quaint historic homes near downtown, newer homes located on the area’s waterways and large hillside homes hidden among the trees. As of this writing, GreatSchools.org ranks Larkspur schools 10 out of 10 on their scale. The town shares schools with nearby Corte Madera and a police department with San Anselmo and Corte Madera which is why they are referred to as the “Twin Cities.” And like its “Twin City,” it is among the most popular places to live in Marin County. I would love to discuss the Larkspur real estate market with you!
