Greenbrae is a small community in Marin County, resting at the opening of Ross Valley. Portions of the community are located in an unincorporated area of the county, and portionsfall within the city limits of neighboring Larkspur.Predominantly composed of hillside and waterfront terrain, Greenbrae is highly sought-after for its custom homes and views of the San Francisco Bay, Corte Madera Creek and Mount Tamalpais. The community took its name from “brae,” which means a steep bank or hillside in dialects of Scotland and Northern Ireland; “greenbrae” means green hillside. A special effort was made during the development of Greenbrae to preserve the hundreds of majestic oak trees that pepper its hillsides. Greenbrae is also home to Bon Air Shopping Center, which features over 50 unique shops and restaurants, as well as Marin General Hospital, Marin’s acute care hospital. Residents enjoy a one-minute drive to the freeway and two minutes to the Larkspur Landing ferry terminal.
