Located in the San Geronimo Valley in West Marin, Woodacre is 8 miles southwest of Novato and 4 miles west of Fairfax. It has the highest base elevation in Marin and boasts a population under 1500. The first Post Office opened in 1925 and as a teenager, Robin Williams lived in Woodacre, in addition to other parts of Marin.
West Marin contains some of the most magnificent landscape in all of California and strict regulations limiting development have served to keep it remarkably unspoiled. Between the pristine expanse of Tomales Bay, the dramatic coastal beauty of the Pt. Reyes National Seashore, the lush redwood forests of Muir Woods, and the rolling hills of Nicasio, you’ve got the natural beauty of every flavor, with coves, beaches, hiking and biking trails, and an abundance of lakes. The hillsides and fields are dotted with cows and don’t be surprised if you have to slow down to let some of the area’s wildlife cross the road. West Marin residents take full advantage of the surroundings, with hikers, kayakers, bikers, fishermen, surfers, farmers, ranchers, and artists all thankful to call such an amazing place home. A long tradition of oyster farming is still alive on Tomales Bay, and on weekends people come from all over to enjoy the local bounty while taking in the view along Highway 1. As West Marin has largely been protected from modern development by the Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT), while driving through the tiny towns and pastureland, it’s easy to forget what decade you are in. It’s a wonderful place to spend a sunny afternoon and a great option for homebuyers looking for a place to slow down and get away from the hustle and bustle.
