Greenbrae, located in Central Marin is unincorporated in the county. It lies on both sides of the main thoroughfare Sir Francis Drake Boulevard. With hillside and waterfront land, homes can have views of San Francisco Bay, Corte Madera Creek and Mt. Tamalpais. Well located near the Larkspur Ferry and close to the San Rafael/Richmond Bridge, Greenbrae is a great location for those commuting to the East Bay or San Francisco.

Predominantly composed of hillside and waterfront terrain, its homes and offices are known for their views of the San Francisco Bay, Corte Madera Creek, and Mount Tamalpais. “Brae” means a steep bank or hillside in dialects of Scotland and Northern Ireland; Greenbrae translates to “green hillside.” The developer of Greenbrae, Niels Schultz, Jr., died in early 2008. Greenbrae’s neighborhoods are bordered by downtown Larkspur to the south, Larkspur Landing to the east, the unincorporated area of Kentfield to the west, and the city of San Rafael to the north. Straddling Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, its most frequented points of interest include Marin General Hospital and Bon Air Shopping Center.
