Mill Valley

Mill Valley is in Marin County, 14 miles north of San Francisco via the Golden Gate Bridge. The population is 13,903. Mill Valley is on the shore of Richardson Bay, amid narrow wooded canyons, mostly of second-growth redwoods, on the slopes of Mount Tamalpais. The Muir Woods National Monument is also located just outside the city limits.

Nestled at the foot of Mount Tamalpais and extending to the marshland surrounding Richardson Bay, Mill Valley has the charm of a small European village that's an equal draw for hikers and runners, musicians and artists, foodies and fashionistas, and moms and dads with strollers. 

Its close proximity to San Francisco enables visitors enjoy the bustle of the city and the beauty of Marin County. Just minutes away are Muir Woods National Monument and Golden Gate National Recreation Area, which attract vacationers from around the world. Outdoor enthusiasts find plenty to do in Mill Valley, and staying in Mill Valley provides the perfect jumping off spot for day trips to the Point Reyes National Seashore, West Marin and the Sonoma and Napa wine country.

Mill Valley hosts a range of cultural activities such as the internationally recognized Mill Valley Film Festival, which brings in leading filmmakers and movie aficionados from across the country. Locals throughout the Bay Area come for the annual events, including Wine & Gourmet Food Tasting, the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival and Winterfest. They also enjoy Mill Valley’s nightlife, with live theatre, music and comic venues, where famous guest artists are known to “drop in” for an evening to entertain.

Mill Valley’s vibrant business districts offer a variety of shopping delights, from one-of-a-kind boutique clothing shops, salons and yoga studios to pet stores. Mill Valley has the best selection of restaurants per square mile in Marin -- you can find everything from top-rated chops, to local craft beer, artisan coffee, handmade pizzas, freshly baked bread, gourmet burgers and more!

Whether you plan to enjoy Mill Valley for an afternoon, a weekend or a lifetime, its small-town ambiance, unique cultural activities and lush natural scenery are sure to delight your senses.

The property shown immediately below is 170 Stanford Avenue which I sold for $2,150,000. It is a spectacular view property adjacent to Mill Valley's Hawk Hill.
