Novato Real Estate

The second largest city in Marin County, Novato has a rich history.  Novato is a premier community located 29 miles north of San Francisco, and has something for everyone.  From horse farms and ranches, to waterfront property and historic mansions, the eclectic blend of homes and people make Novato a city with a distinct personality. 

Novato was originally Rancho de Novato belonging to Fernando Feliz in 1839.  Before that however, it was the location of a key Miwok settlement, dating back to 1300.  An Elizabethan coin was found nearby as well.  Could it have belonged to the exploration party of Sir Francis Drake that landed on the coast in 1579?  And in 1846, the single battle of the Bear Flag Rebellion was fought here.

Novato played its part in the history of the Bay area and was incorporated in 1960.  With 52,000 residents, this city continues to be home to a diverse population.  7,600 students attend school in the Novato Unified School District.  The Buck Institute for Research in Aging, a nonprofit organization, can be found in Novato as well as Bio Marin.

Old Town Novato boasts unique boutiques and shops while the Vintage Oaks Shopping Center houses all the staples of daily living and modern luxury including Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Costco and Target.  The summers typically bring warmer days in Novato than other Marin towns. Recreation can be found in the city's parks and outdoor enthusiasts will have no trouble finding the space to enjoy their favorite activities in spots like Stafford Lake and the like.
