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.
Bon Air Center was built in 1952 as Greenbrae’s commercial and community center. Today the center remains a focal point for local services, retail and restaurant offerings making it an ideal place to shop, dine, stroll and gather with friends. From a massage and a blow dry, to new shoes and dinner, Bon Air has it all. Throughout the year the center hosts community events that showcase local interests and activities. With a whole new look, Bon Air continues to be the center that brings the community together.
The property shown immediately below is 13 Parkside Way which sold for $3,050,000 in 2019 and was the most expensive home sold in Greenbrae in 2019.
