Mill Valley Real Estate

In 1836, John Reed built a saw mill on Cascade Creek.  The mill worked to produce wood for the construction of his house.  Mill Valley was named for this mill, which has since been restored and stands just a few blocks from downtown in Old Mill Park.

Only ten minutes from San Francisco, Mill Valley is located on the eastern slope of Mt. Tamalpais.  There is a very peaceful, rural feel to the area as homes are surrounded by the truly majestic redwoods and abundant pines.  Set back far enough from the main roadways, you'll feel as though you've gone back through time to a quieter, simpler era.

With fantastic hiking in your backyard and the beach just a short drive away, Mill Valley provides ample outdoor activity for even the most adventurous.  Biking is popular and the Old Railroad Grade is a popular trail for both bikes and hikers.  Nearby are Muir Woods National Monument, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and Mt. Tamalpais State Park providing acres to explore.  For a change in pace, the nightlife and urbanism of San Francisco is essentially next door.

Mill Valley was incorporated in 1900 and the town was quick to make its mark.  The Outdoor Art Club, founded in 1902, is still active in the community and works to preserve the natural beauty of the area.  In 1905, the Dipsea Race was run for the first time.  At 7.1 miles long, it is the second oldest race in the country.  This quaint town also hosts the Fall Arts Festival and the Mill Valley Film Festival, drawing thousands to experience these great events each year.

Real Estate in Mill Valley has the best to offer for quiet living in a town with a special ambiance. Yet it has many modern luxury properties as well.  The close knit community has a rich assortment of activities for its residents, boasts great schools, convenient shopping, and entertainment at such favorites as 142 Throckmorton Theater and the Sweetwater Music Hall for music.  No matter who you are or what you do, Mill Valley is the place for you.
