City Guide

Corte Madera
In Spanish, the town's name means "chop wood," and comes from its heritage as a source for redwood lumber culled from the forests of Tamalpais which built much of San Francisco.
In Spanish, the town's name means "chop wood," and comes from its heritage as a source for redwood lumber culled from the forests of Tamalpais which built much of San Francisco.

Set in green and lush Marin County, Corte Madera extends from the San Francisco Bay to Mt. Tamalpais. With about 9,000 residents, Corte Madera fits nicely with neighboring Larkspur, Mill Valley, Tiburon, and Strawberry. Desirable because of its natural beauty, wide range of local amenities, and access to San Francisco to the south and wine country to the north, Corte Madera is a great place to look for your next rental home. Encompassing four and a half square miles, including tidelands, the town is only 12 miles from San Francisco and enjoys considerably more sun than its peninsular neighbor to the south and more even than some of its Marin neighbors -- though if you need fog, just head for the hills, literally. As with most of coastal California, the area was originally part of a Mexican land grant, Ranch Corte Madera del Presidio, granted to John Reed in 1834 by Mexican Governor Jose Figueroa. Reed capitalized on the lumber industry and the town grew with the 1850 Gold Rush, arrival of the railroad, and development of ferry service into San Francisco.

Moving to Corte Madera

This town aptly describes itself as cosmopolitan: situated in the heart of exclusive Mill Valley, you're in for fine California living here. This area is highly desirable -- and with good reason. Easy commutes to San Francisco (take the ferry -- that's our favorite way to get to work) and the East Bay.

Give yourself a month to pick your favorite neighborhood and find your preferred housing. You might not find apartments with paid utilities here (the area's popularity means landlords don't necessarily need to sweeten the deal), but you'll find a variety of housing types to suit your style, from a one bedroom apartment to a home for rent.

Make sure you come well-prepared to seal the deal once you find your dream apartment rental. It's a good idea to have your credit history, proof of income, deposit money, and references ready to go.

Corte Madera Neighborhoods

There's hardly a bad place to live in Corte Madera. Your toughest choice will be whether to go for something on a hill or something not on a hill. While some areas are walkable, the situation of the town, Highway 101, and tidal lands make it handy to have a car for errands and commuting. Here are a few neighborhoods to check out:

Chapman Park: With older homes, this established neighborhood gives you that hill vs. flat choice we mentioned. Rental homes can be found here, but not many apartments. Just across the northern edge of this neighborhood, over Tamalpais Drive, you'll find the Village at Corte Madera shopping mall with all of the major brands and boutique stores you could need like Nordstrom and Banana Republic.

Old Corte Madera: Close to the historic town center, this sought-after neighborhood features class California bungalows as well as some more modern homes. Cyclists will love the easy pedal into the town square or over to downtown Larkspur's amenities. The best of Corte Madera dining, like The Counter -- a burger joint with an impressive array of topping options -- and boutique shopping is found here along with a weekly farmers' market. This is a great place to look for a historic home for rent.

Christmas Tree Hill: Named for the shape made by lit houses at night up the hill, this neighborhood offers sweeping views of the bay. You'll need a car to live here and parking can be a challenge, but did we mention the views? You may be able to find the rare 2 bedroom apartment for rent here to enjoy hillside living. Walk uphill to hit some local trail heads you can wander into neighboring towns like Kentfield and Mill Valley or wander over to Camino Alto Open Space Preserve to get your nature on.

Madera Del Presidio: This 1990s development offers modern homes and great commuter locations. It's close to the Village at Corte Madera and Paradise Foods market. Find ample floor plans for rental homes and some one bedroom apartments for rent here. You might have to contend with some highway noise, but the trade off may be worth it thanks to its access to amenities.
