Located in the heart of Chapman Park on Oakdale Avenue in Corte Madera, this Craftsman Bungalow will let you enjoy the small town character that makes Corte Madera a special place to live.
In the interest of full disclosure: we live nearby! So we may not be totally objective, but we know the area!
Most of the numerous young children on this block walk to school at nearby Neil Cummins Elementary School, located on the other side of Corte Madera Town Park. Town Park is a large, over 22 acre site just one block away that features soccer fields, playgrounds, a skate park, baseball fields, numerous picnic sites – and is also the center for the Town’s famous 4th of July celebration.
And on the way back from school, lots of moms and their kids can be found at Cafe Verde, or sitting outside having coffee on Town Park Plaza. The bus stop with express buses to downtown San Francisco is also right there, and Highway 101 is just down the road.
With two bedrooms and two baths, 1,280 square feet of living space, a two car garage and basement, this is an excellent starter home in one of Marin’s most desirable neighborhoods. The home was originally built in 1930, and has many vintage features like hardwood and Douglas fir floors, formal living and dining rooms, and a wood burning fireplace. It is on an oversized lot, 8800 square feet according to tax records, and has large, level, front, side and back yards. There is a nice deck with a Mt. Tam view right off the kitchen, perfect for barbecues, and we even uncovered an old, outdoor fireplace while clearing the lot to prep the home for sale!
Check out the property website, and more detailed information can currently be found there. Price is $995,000, one of the least expensive homes on the West side of 101! Contact Bob if you would like more information about pricing and availability.
