PLEASE CORRECT LOCATION OF 253 Camellia Circle, Larkspur, CA 94939. The map is wrong and it is not in Tiffany Hills or Via Roble.It is off of Doherty Drive at Rose Lane in LARKSPUR!

You do not want to be single in this town. I've been here 25 years and for a single person this just doesn't work. It's a family oriented place and very few singles live here.

Don't forget to look at Madrone Canyon full of redwoods...it's worth looking at many families are very happy there. As a child it would be a magical place to grow up.

It's possible but depends on where you live. Generally speaking it's a suburban situation. I would think it would be difficult to carry a lot of groceries to where you live with that said it could be done. I think we've all gotten spoiled by driving in California. There is Golden Gate transit for going to the city and other cities, I would live as close as possible to the old town but to get to the best groceries would be a few miles away...a lot of walking. ... more

it's hard to beat Larkspur for weather. I have lived in Madrone Canyon for 25 years and love the weather but winters can be very wet. In general there aren't drastic changes and the weather is consistently pleasant. On those few hot days in the 90's and those are few, you can always go to Tiburon and cool off. It really is a jewel of a place with little fog and much beauty and weather consistency. ... more

J.P.

And...

All the communities of the Ross Valley are co-terminous, each abuts others. On the ground it is often invisible where one ends and another begins. Greenbrae, Corte Madera, Larkspur and Kentfield all have their own flavor of shopping, services and amenities. And then there are San Anselmo and San Rafael that are very close. Most folk use the whole shebang. I live in Mill Valley and often shop variously in the Ross Valley. ... more

Straddling Magnolia Avenue, if there is one issue Larkspur cannot escape it's traffic. The town is so beautiful it attracts its share of tourists, and any locals who want to pass through north or south are forced to follow. More recently, traffic lights have regulated the flow and I've noticed a definite improvement. For commuters it's pretty easy. Head down Doherty Drive and on to Highway 101. Maybe two miles. ... more

Dolliver Park is a tiny park for small children nestled beneath towering redwoods, a shady hideaway at the entrance to Madrone Canyon and the mountain hiking trails. Piper Park is a huge open sky park on the edge of Corte Madera Creek. It has playing fields, grassy lawns, and picnic areas. ... more

Larkspur is great for families. Weather, schools and outdoor activities. The best weather and the best schools, along with access to the trails on Mt. Tamalpais, the walking trail that cuts across town from north to south, and three parks, the tiny, redwood tree shrouded Dolliver Park, the other small Heatherwood Park, and the huge Piper Park with playing fields and open skies. ... more

What an interesting town Larkspur is! One of the most beautiful little downtowns in Marin County, Larkspur is a combination of beautifully restored old homes alongside old homes waiting to be restored, alongside homes from the 40's and a few modern gems here and there. Like Mill Valley, Larkspur is one of the older towns in the county and one of the best places to live. People take great pride in the homes, and it keeps getting better. Trees are mature and lush, and the town feels like a big garden dotted with homes. ... more
