Hamilton is a great area to live. The weather is incredible. The wind will kick up a little along the levee and on some of the hiking trails. Hamilton School is right at the Main Gate entrance. There is also the Novato Charter School in Hamilton. The high school for the area is Novato High School. Many things for kids and teens to do. There actually is a skate park in Hamilton as well as a community pool. You can walk to the Hamilton Market Place from anywhere in Hamilton. There is a Pete's coffee and a few nice places to eat. I highly recommend the Hamilton area for any family looking for the best on Novato living. ... more

Hi Ferrisr001:

I may know of the perfect 3 bedroom 2&1/2 bath Novato home with large fenced in yard, and a great dog door so the dogs can just let themselves out to sit on the deck and play in the yard on a sunny day.

How can I contact you to discuss? And when do you need the property? Furnished or Unfurnished?

I am not experienced on answering questions on Trulia so I do not want to give out my contact information in a public forum.

Hi Ferrisr001, Of course it is! I will take it that you are looking to rent in the way you question is worded. So here's the deal. As a long time landlord I can attest to the difficulty of renting to a tenant with a large dog so here's what you do. Offer a dog damage deposit! It should be brought up as soon as you ask if the landlord will take a large dog. Second ask that the landlord come meet your big (hopefully) sweet and lovable dog and be prepaired to show that your dog will follow simple commands like "out " or "sit". You need to demonstrate that you have your dog under control at all times and his or her behavior is not destructive! Finally be ready to do a simple demonstration of you control of the dog so the landlord can be put at ease. And don't for get the old "the dog stays in the garage pitch"... ... more

As a happy and long time Hamilton resident, it's interesting how in 2010, competing Marin relators continue to make generalized statements which are mis-leading and mis-representative of our neighborhood.

Let's be clear, Hamilton Field was decommissioned in January 1976, nearly 35 years ago. In fact, most of us parents were barely out of diapers ourselves at that time.

Yes, 25 years ago, after the site was sold to a private developer, they asked the USAF to cleanup a handful of acres which had been used as dump areas. The USAF agreed and completed a multi-million dollar cleanup effort. Let's be even more specific, these cleaned up areas are on the outskirts of the over 700 acres that makeup the large Hamilton area. There is not a single home or neighborhood even built in these old areas.

So, it is ridiculous to suggest that you can't plant a fruit tree in your yard because almost a mile away there happens to be is a tiny parcel of land which, 40 years ago, was used as a dump.

Interestingly, every single city/county in the country has such dumps, only they don't even ever need to clean them up and nobody gives it a second thought. The fact that, years ago, the USAF did announce their effort to take care of Hamilton was "spun" into a negative, rather than applauded.

Maybe that's because the neighborhoods in Hamilton are some of the most modern in Marin. I can only suspect that the idea of a "Truman Show-ish" development perturbed many county traditionalists and so they set out to "bad mouth" the area at that time. Well, I don't know anyone in Hamilton who doesn't love living here, so years later, it has been their loss.
