Great weather, access to hiking and biking trails, plus good schools and a strong, vibrant downtown make San Anselmo a desirable destination for those looking to live a little off the beaten track.
Heading up Butterfield Road will take you to one of the most magical neighborhoods in Marin: Sleepy Hollow. This neighborhood has always been a draw for families seeking large lots, warm weather, community events, and sweeping views of the open spaces, grasslands and oak trees of northern Marin. The Sleepy Hollow Pool and the voluntary Sleepy Hollow Homeowners' Association offer a myriad of community activities.
Downtown the locals get their fill of gourmet comfort food at Comforts, and their caffeine fix at the Marin Coffee Roasters, which hosts a long-standing jam session on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Shopping for antiques is a notable pastime here, with over 100 stores devoted to discovering the perfect find. Sunset Magazine readers recently named San Anselmo as the best town in the west for antiquing.
It's a town made for strolling. Small shops and many restaurants line the main street, which back onto the active San Anselmo Creek. Insalatas, Fork, and Cucina are popular dinner destinations for the gourmet.
Schools in San Anselmo are part of the Ross Valley School District serving San Anselmo, Fairfax, and Sleepy Hollow. The district includes four K through 5 elementary schools: Brookside Elementary School, Hidden Valley Elementary School, Manor Elementary School and Wade Thomas Elementary School, and White Hill Middle School for grades 6th, 7th and 8th. Most middle school graduates attend Sir Francis Drake High School or one of the many private schools in the area. San Domenico School, a private school at the end of Butterfield Road, draws students from all over the world seeking top-notch facilities and education.
