Set upon one of the most unique environments in Marin County, the Boardwalk is a community unlike normal suburbia. An easy stroll to your boardwalk home is one of the best walks in nature with Avian friends – egrets, herons, Ridgway rails, ducks and geese- in homes surrounded by pickle weed and salt grass. Acres of undisturbed salt marshlands all bordered and surrounded by the Bay preserve and waters.
The Greenbrae Boardwalk was constructed in the 1900s for fishermen and birders to docke their boats along the Corte Madera Creek. Over time, these picturesque boats became homes. The Boardwalk is bordered by the creek and the bay to the north and the Corte Madera Ecological Reserve to the south.
65 Boardwalk comprises of 2 living units and a separate 3rd space. The house in front was built in approximately 1940 by the family who owned the ark in the back at that time. Like all of the Boardwalk, this property has history and character:
The ark was built in approximately 1890 and her name is ELEANOR A. This home has all of the charm and character of living on a vintage boat but updated with modern conveniences. The main room includes ample space for living, dining and kitchen and is served by a full bath. A spiral staircase accesses the loft with 360° views that include Mount Tam, Mt Diablo and the San Francisco Bay.
Upstairs is a 2nd full bathroom and the main bedroom. It also has its own deck, exterior stairs with views on to the bay, gardens and pier.
The extensive decking wraps around the 3 structures and provides a number of sitting areas that include a new covered lanai over a large section of decking. The decking continues out to the tidal pier to keep your water vessels or toys. If you have your own runabout, you could pick up or deliver your spouse or partner from the Larkspur Ferry Terminal within minutes.
Front house is 1411 sq ft 2 bedrooms/1 bath and a very spacious with living room, large skylight and open kitchen. This currently is a rental with an excellent tenant.
3rd space is another separate space will a full bathroom. This can be used for recreation, entertainment, storage and/or workshop (or any combination of these). The center courtyard contains a raised bed vegetable garden.
There is a privately owned parking lot and one or 2 parking spaces are available – covered or uncovered.
For nature and water lovers, this unique bay-front community is very special. Outdoor enthusiasts have immediate access to the bay waters and fishing, windsurfing, kite surfing, boating, sailing, birdwatching, paddle boarding or kayaking. 101 is a block away for easy commute or access to shopping inconveniences and the other beautiful parts of Marin County, San Francisco or wine country. Right across the water sits the Marin Country Mart which hosts restaurants such as Farm Shop, Rustic Bakery, Belcampo and Marin Brew Co. Just a few of the amenities include Soul Cycle, 24 Hour Fitness and Bed, Bath & Beyond.
