Nicasio is referred to as “The Marin County town that time forgot,” and for good reason. With just a few hundred households comprising the area and a landscape that has remained rural despite sprawl in other communities, Nicasio offers a return to simpler times, yet with a luxury touch. At once picturesque and charming, exclusive and elegant, Nicasio has a small population of less than 1,000 people and 250 homes. No more than 100 more residences can ever be built in the area, forever preserving its small-town appeal.
Once named by Forbes as one of the most expensive ZIP codes in the country, Nicasio retains its luxury profile within a more relaxed, family-friendly way of life than is found in many Bay Area communities. Families are drawn to Nicasio for its well-performing school district, its laid-back but upscale lifestyle, and its sprawling ranches, organic farmland and newly added small vineyards. The charming Town Square, which includes a post office, general store, volunteer fire department, bar and restaurant, and a baseball field, gives residents a meeting spot that’s also a source of pride. Nicasio is also known as the home of George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch.
