Exhilarating waterfront hideaway on protected marshland

This is a rare chance to live in one of Marin’s most unique communities – a gathering of waterfront houses built atop protected marshland, a state bird preserve.

Created by and for renowned physicist Albert Baez, father of legendary singers Joan Baez and Mimi Farina, 58 Greenbrae Boardwalk has hosted countless memorable parties and community events throughout the years.

Bounded by Corte Madera Creek and the San Francisco Bay, the Boardwalk is home to 49 houses set on pilings above a salt marsh, accessible only on foot or by bike via a raised walkway.

Bordered by wetland walking trails and observation areas, the reserve is a key habitat for native plants and wildlife – an incomparable waterfront setting that creates an ambience of sheer delight indoors and out.

The home’s creative, eclectic interior centers on a vast circular great room designed for entertaining.

Warmed by a woodstove, this bright, dramatic space opens to a spectacular deck with panoramic views of the Corte Madera Marsh State Marine Park and Mt. Tamalpais, which can be seen from nearly every window in the home.

The open plan room embraces a dining area, upscale kitchen and office. There are three bedrooms and two baths, including a wonderful upper level master suite overlooking the sweeping wetlands.

Even though this home feels miles away from the world, it’s close to everything: the shops and restaurants of the Bon Air Greenbrae center, the Marin County Mart, Kentfield schools, public transportation, Highway 101 and the ferry to San Francisco.
