Welcome to San Anselmo
Great weather, access to hiking and biking trails, good schools, and a delightful downtown make San Anselmo a desirable destination for Marin County homebuyers. The neighborhood surrounding the San Francisco Theological Seminary is a quiet, leafy enclave of large, older houses with yards. Heading up Butterfield Road will take you through the bucolic neighborhood of Sleepy Hollow to the rolling hills above San Anselmo, which offer sweeping views of the open spaces, grasslands, and oak trees of northern Marin County. San Anselmo is a town made for strolling. Small shops and many restaurants line the main street, which backs onto the active San Anselmo Creek. Insalata’s and Cucina Restaurant & Wine Bar are popular dinner destinations. Locals get their fill of gourmet comfort food at Comforts and their caffeine fix at the Marin Coffee Roasters. Shopping for antiques is a notable pastime here, with numerous stores devoted to discovering the perfect find. Residents of San Anselmo attend the Ross Valley School District schools, which are comprised of four elementary schools and one middle school. High schoolers primarily attend Drake High School, but are able to access the other schools in the Tamalpais Union High School District. California’s first independent school, San Domenico School, is an outstanding day and boarding K-12 school nestled on 515 acres at the end of Butterfield Road.
