The town of San Anselmo—located approximately 15-18 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge—is a sophisticated, yet laid-back, friendly community with a mellow Mediterranean climate of warm, dry summers and wet winters.
This family-oriented, creek-side town is a hub of activity with antique shops, boutiques and restaurants. There’s Juan's Tumbling classes for kids, the beautiful Seminary, film nights in the park, Sleepy Hollow’s 4th of July Parade, town festivals, and magnificent mountain biking and hiking trails on Mt. Tamalpais.
San Anselmo is a very desirable place to live, and real estate in San Anselmo is in demand. The average median home price for a single-family home in San Anselmo is typically in the mid-$900,000s. Homes in Sleepy Hollow tend to be larger with acreage, and home styles throughout the town range from Spanish-Mediterranean, single-level ranches, Victorians, bungalows, a few Eichler homes, and more.
