BELVEDERE REAL ESTATE

The name means "beautiful view" and when you first glimpse Belvedere you will whole-heartedly agree. Known the world over, this picturesque town is considered one of the most exclusive in the Bay Area. The San Francisco Bay surrounds it on 3 sides providing glorious water views and dazzling City and Golden Gate vistas.

Belvedere is located approximately 15 to 20 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco and is less than a few miles to the Tiburon Ferry.

Many of the homes in Belvedere are located directly on the water and have private boat docks. Some residents who buy here have been known to buy a boat as well due to the convenient proximity their locations allow. If you don't buy a home with a private boat dock then the San Francisco Yacht Club in Belvedere as well as the Corinthian Yacht Club in adjacent Tiburon are a perfect option. In addition to these private clubs the Belvedere Sailing Society and social club is open to Belvedere residents for sailing as well.

Noted architects have designed homes here and some are historically significant dating back to the late 1800's with clapboard style siding, veranda style porches overlooking the water.

Belvedere offers three distinct neighborhoods within the city limits: The first is Belvedere Island where many architectural styles are represented. The second is Corinthian Island, which feels more like being on the Island of Capri or Positano than the Bay Area. Windy, curvy streets one way and too narrow for more than one car have magnificent homes many of which are built right on the steep hillsides with astounding views. Third, is the Belvedere Lagoon area where homes look out onto the lagoon. Mid-century is the style predominates here with many homes having undergone recent renovations to include contemporary as well as Mediterranean styles.

Single Family homes in Belvedere can range from the low million dollar range to over 15 to 20 million with the median price being $2.5-$2.7m.

FAIRFAX REAL ESTATE

Located about 30 minutes from San Francisco the atmosphere of Fairfax is one of an old-fashioned small town, rural feel where the orientation toward family is apparent. There is the festival every June called the Fairfax Festival where people come from all over to enjoy a parade, blue-grass music, gourmet foods and kid friendly activities. Fairfax is also known for its proximity to hiking trails and off-road bike paths (heck, Fairfax is the birthplace of the mountain bike). And then there is the food. Every Wednesday from June through September a Farmers market is held where seasonal organic produce from local farms such as nearby in Bolinas are represented. Grocery stores include the organic Good Earth Natural Foods store on the main street Sir Francis Drake Blvd.

A local movie theater. A multitude of restaurants and shops are all within an easy stroll of one another. Real Estate prices vary from fixer properties to a few special properties in the multi-million dollar range. In between are more modestly priced homes. The topography of Fairfax like a lot of other Marin locations which means hillside locations where a homes only level out outdoor space might mean a deck and/or a small level yard area. Lot sizes can be small to standard but it is not uncommon to find a home on acreage. Do not expect to find manicured lawns are not the norm here but rather a more rustic, country setting seems to be the standard. Architecturally, the houses are older ranch styles, cottages and bungalows from the early 1900Ós and more modern style homes.

Fairfax was originally part of a Spanish land grant conferred to Domingo Sais in 1839. Sais gave the area now known as the Marin Town & Country Club to Marin County's first physician, Alfred Taliaferro of Virginia, who subsequently passed the property along to fellow Virginian Charles Snowden Fairfax. Lord Fairfax, tenth Baron of Cameron, Scotland, moved here with his wife Ada in 1855, lured west by gold fever.

After the death of Charles Fairfax, the property changed hands, eventually becoming the site of the renowned Pastori's Restaurant in the 1890's. Madame Pastori, once a singer at La Scala in Milan, Italy, was visited in Fairfax by many great figures in the opera world. The restaurant, which was rebuilt on a grander scale after a fire in 1911, still stands.

Convenient railroad service early in this century made Fairfax a favorite weekend and summer retreat for city dwellers. Fairfax Park hosted thousands on weekends. Fairfax was the setting for dozens of early Western movies from 1910 to the early 1920's. Construction of Alpine Dam in 1917 brought a large Italian population to the area, adding to Fairfax's colorful history.

Fairfax came of age in February of 1931 when the town was incorporated as a city with a five-member council government. Fairfax today, with a diverse population of 7,000, is a community of fine neighborhoods nestled in the hills and small valleys of the Upper Ross Valley. Located 16 miles north of San Francisco, within easy reach of numerous State and National Recreation Areas, Fairfax offers the best of both work and play while retaining its small-town atmosphere and charm. Two of our Cal Land Title employees live in Fairfax and they absolutely love it!

INVERNESS REAL ESTATE

Once only viewed as a summer vacation spot with some homes that still remain with the original families who built them in the 30's, Inverness is gradually building a year round population. And, because many of the homes just pass from one generation to the next a normal inventory of houses has not always been that easy to come by here in Inverness. When properties do become available though you can expect to find a range of homes from the small wooded cottage tucked into the hillside to a multi-million dollar estate home.

Sir Francis Drake Blvd. from Hwy 101 eventually leads you to the small coastal town of Inverness before reaching the Point Reyes National Seashore. The multitude of outdoor recreational activities include kayaking in Tomales Bay, hiking, of course mountain biking, bird watching or watching seals, or the occasional migrating whales makes Inverness a sought after and unique place to live not only a popular spot for visitors but for year round residents as well.

SAUSALITO REAL ESTATE

Sausalito is situated near the northern end of the Golden Gate Bridge, and prior to the building of that bridge served as a terminus for rail, car and ferry traffic. Developed rapidly as a shipbuilding center in World War II, the city's industrial character gave way in postwar years to a reputation as an artistic enclave, as a picturesque residential community (incorporating large numbers of houseboats), and as a tourist destination. Due to its location at the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito receives a steady stream of visitors via the bridge and a ferry service from San Francisco. It retains one of the few ungated marinas in the Bay Area that attracts visitors. The Sausalito houseboat community consists of more than 400 houseboats of various shapes, sizes, and values, along the north end of town, approximately two miles from downtown. Otis Redding, musician, wrote "Dock of the Bay" while staying on a houseboat at Waldo Point in Sausalito in 1967.

Although a popular vacation spot Stinson Beach has many permanent residents.

Stinson Beach is a popular day trip for people from the San Francisco Bay Area and for tourists visiting northern California. Although most visitors arrive by private car, Stinson Beach is linked to Marin City by a daily bus service, and the network of hiking trails around Mount Tamalpais also reaches the town.
