Neighborhood

When you purchase a home in Fairfax, you're also purchasing history. There's still a whiff of 1960s counterculture in Fairfax, where the Jefferson Airplane once played softball with the Grateful Dead. This town of 7,500 residents just north of Mount Tamalpais is 30 minutes from San Francisco, less than 20 miles from Point Reyes, and is known as one of Marin County’s more affordable communities. The heart of Fairfax is Broadway Boulevard, which parallels Sir Frances Drake Boulevard, the main traffic corridor heading west. Broadway is a perfect walking street where locals shop at Fairfax Coffee Roastery, purchase fresh local produce at the farmers market, and duck into Fairfax Variety for toys, tchotchkes, and candy. If Fairfax feels like it is living in a time warp, that's just fine with its residents, who have passed ordinances prohibiting chain stores, plastic bags, and Styrofoam takeout-food packaging. The art-deco movie theater and 19 Broadway Bar & Night Club are at the center of the action when it comes to nightlife in Fairfax.

Floor/Site Plan

What We Love

We love that our home has beautiful views on three sides and is surrounded by forest yet, it is still walkable to downtown Fairfax! Our neighbors are amazing and we look forward to the annual cookie exchange which I have hosted twice.
 
My husband and I chose this house on purpose because it’s long and thin with one side for the kids and one side for us. We all meet up in the huge, sunny living/kitchen/dining room for dinner and family time. 
 
Our pool is solar heated and perfect for the hot summer days in Fairfax plus, there is a water feature that creates a fun fountain effect. The deck has extraordinary views and our BBQ has a plumbed gas line so it really serves as my second kitchen. Summer dinners looking over the treetops of Ross Valley are so relaxing. 
 
A “good” day is one where I don’t have to leave Fairfax. I run or bike in the hills, go to yoga and then to Good Earth for breakfast where I also by groceries for the day. We walk down to have brunch at Hummingbird and the new, reclining chairs at the Fairfax cinema are loved by the whole family. At Christmas time and for birthdays I always shop locally, especially at Herban Garden, Magpie and Live Water Surf. We all have different favorite restaurants and mine is Sorella where the friendly atmosphere and the proprieter’s hug make us feel like family.
Of course, the main culinary attraction is Scoop and we have had guests from Poland, Italy, France and Japan who support what we know, that it’s the best ice cream in the world.
 
When my kids were in junior high, they loved the independence that Fairfax afforded them. Both studied dance at Roco and walked or biked to class, stopping at Rev 9 to hang out with friends. As they got older and could drive, they really appreciated living so close to the ocean. One liked to surf and the other to hike. 
 
The family loved attending the many Fairfax events: the annual parade, Biketoberfest, movies with a social conscious at the Women’s Building, the craft fair and so many more! Local government is super active and our mayor and I met every Wednesday for a year when our kids were in preschool. Really there is no better place to raise children.
