Corte Madera

Ideal for families, commuters, and lovers of the outdoors, Corte Madera is centrally located in Marin County, stretching from bayside to the hills of Mt. Tamalpais. Corte Madera in Spanish means”cut wood” and, like other towns in Marin County, supplied lumber to build San Francisco homes. Real estate has been booming over the last few years as people discover the unique location and the excellent schools. Homes in town, along with Larkspur and Greenbrae homes, are much sought after because of their convenient Central Marin location.

Corte Madera is ideal for commuters. On Highway 101, it is 8 miles and about 10 minutes drive to the Golden Gate Bridge, with easy access into San Francisco. The Corte Madera exit on the freeway is the last before heavy afternoon traffic going north. Commuters are a few minutes ride to the Larkspur Ferry Terminal and close to the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge to the East Bay. Commuters can also take the Golden Gate Ferry into the city from either Larkspur, Sausalito, or Tiburon.

Corte Madera is divided by Highway 101 into two parts, West Corte Madera and Bayside (East) Corte Madera.
