Sausalito. A Great place to LIVE. WORK. PLAY!

Characterized as a residential and tourist town, the charming village of Sausalito is reminiscent of the south of France. Located just around the corner from the Golden Gate, the city offers lovely homes that range from handsome 50-year-old estates to contemporary models. Many homes feature balconies or decks, although yard space is extremely limited. Tree-shaded streets meander through hills to offer wonderful views of the Bay, Angel Island, and even the twinkling lights of downtown San Francisco.

School-age children share public educational facilities with Marin City youth, although the demographics of Sausalito indicate that this compact and sophisticated city attracts more young professionals, empty-nesters, and retirees than families with small children. The commute to San Francisco is one of the best, just a matter of minutes over the Golden Gate bridge. Ferries offer another efficient trip to the city.

Steep hillsides are not conducive to parks, although the city has claimed the former Fort Baker for a 355-acre expanse of parkland. Exceptional shopping, movies, fishing, boating, arts and crafts, and delightful festivals make this a lively and stimulating place to live. In spite of a modest population and small-town ambiance, the commercial district is conveniently well developed and many businesses punctuate the cityscape.

The house shown below is 138 San Carlos which sold for $5,215,000 as Sausalito's most expensive home sold in 2019! It is located in Sausalito's highly desirable Banana Belt!
