The “Hidden Jewel of Marin County,” as the beautiful town of Corte Madera is often referred to, is a perfect balance between rural and urban living. Wildlife preserves like the Corte Madera Ecological Reserve, Shorebird Marsh, and the Ring Mountain Preserve are all minutes away from upscale shopping centers such as The Town Center and The Village at Corte Madera. The town’s feet are splashed by the San Francisco Bay tides in the east and its back rests on Mount Tamalpais in the west.
Residents take advantage of their good fortune. Hiking, biking, picnicking, kayaking, and boating are among the most popular activities, and the Mediterranean climate allows people to enjoy the outdoors all year round. Corte Madera is also home to some of the best schools and most coveted real estate in the country. The Larskpur-Corte Madera School District is a major advantage of living in the area and is nationally distinguished.
