Located within the rolling green hills and valleys of northern Marin, Novato is the second largest community in the County. Great weather, a lively downtown area, and homes that provide a great value in Marin is what sets Novato apart. With its hilltop estates and occasional vineyard, there’s a touch of Italian countryside lingering in this quickly-growing town. Novato offers a price point for everyone, with a more affordable median home price and high quality of life than almost anywhere else in Marin. From the luxury waterfront homes in Bel Marin Keys to the Indian Valley equestrian properties and the California suburban neighborhoods in between, you can feel the vibrant buzz among residents here.
Younger families have begun moving here for the reasonable commute to San Francisco and the balanced lifestyle. The Vintage Oaks shopping center is just steps away, providing a Target, Costco, Macy’s Furniture, Marshall’s and plenty of specialty shopping, such as Sephora, and dining. Plenty of local community events are offered in Novato as well, including a fabulous Tuesday evening farmer’s market and the Art, Wine, and Music festival hosted during the summer months. Sometimes known as the “gateway to wine country,” Novato is becoming increasingly discovered as a destination of its own, with a price point for everyone.
