San Rafael Real Estate

San Rafael is located on the land that was once the Mission San Rafael Arcangel.  Father Prefect Vicente Francisco de Sarria, along with three friars and a group of soldiers, established the mission on December 14, 1817.   The mission was rebuilt in the city of San Rafael and although the buildings are not the originals, the museum houses a plethora of authentic artifacts.

The oldest and largest city in Marin County, San Rafael is also the seat for the county government.  The second most popular destination for tourists can also be found in San Rafael.  A national historic landmark, The Frank Lloyd Wright Civic Center draws tourists from around the world to see the only government building and last major structure designed by the world renowned architect.  China Camp State Park is just minutes from town and provides a beautiful shoreline to enjoy.

Residents are able to enjoy all of the 14 parks maintained by the city.  Yacht clubs, docking and launching facilities, swim and tennis clubs, and bicycle trails are all available in San Rafael.  San Rafael Eichlers account for most of the mid-century modern homes in Marin. The city is truly a place for families who wish to enjoy an active lifestyle.  The community has a rich cultural heritage and diversity that combined with the history of this city, create a place unlike any other.
