Tiburon is a gorgeous enclave, hidden on a lush, hilly peninsula that is set apart from the rest of Marin County and overlooks the glistening San Francisco Bay.
Pricey, Luxury Homes, Hillside Mansions, Views, Small Town
This small peninsula is a haven for secluded living with large-scale luxury homes set back off hillside roads and a quaint Main St. perfect for summer evenings with the family.
Here, you’ll find isolated and lovely mansions with dramatic bay-scapes seen from floor-to-ceiling windows, but all it takes to be brought back down to earth is a slice and a soft-serve with the kids along Tiburon’s adorable Main St.
The lifestyle in Tiburon is as slow or as fast as you want it to be, catering to busy commuters who revel in the breezy 30-minute ferry ride to the city as much as telecommuting entrepreneurs and stay-at-home parents, but on summer evenings when downtown is pedestrian-only, neighbors relax and greet each other like old friends.
Catch a race from the Corinthian Yacht Club and watch the sailboats set out to paint the bay in windswept dots of white or simply soak up the sea air from any of Tiburon’s family-friendly bayside parks, which are strung out like pearls along the town’s waterfront.
The homes in Tiburon are simply gorgeous and vary in architectural style, though with a median home value of $2.4 million, this oasis is on the pricey side, even for expensive Marin, with many properties reaching well above $10 million. But it’s the dramatic vistas residents are here for, and the great schools and tight-knit community are a bonus, encouraging locals to put down solid roots.
The contours of Tiburon’s coastline and winding streets will certainly leave you breathless, as will the scene from your home’s hillside vantage point, and it's adorable downtown feels more undiscovered than neighboring Sausalito, so peace and seclusion remain paramount.
