Meet Me in Larkspur

index-meetmeinlarkspur.jpgThat’s the catchy slogan that will be used by the city of Larkspur to commemorate and celebrate their centennial.  Having recently returned west from my brief affair with the east, the one thing I do miss about the other coast is the history and lack of newness.  Besides the trees and trails, what draws me to Marin is the smattering of citys with charming downtowns that scream of history and pay homage to a time long past.  San Anselmo recently passed the century mark and this year, along with Larkspur, Ross is ringing in the big 1-0-0.index-larkspur100years-small.jpg

This Saturday kicks off a year long party with a big fiesta and parade in Larkspur.  Come spend the day at an event I’m pretty sure none of us will be around for the next one.  While you are at it, take a look at recent homes on the market and you may find yourself celebrating Larkspur all year.

378 Larkspur Plaza Dr – 2 beds/ 1 bath, 906SF – $549,000:  This 2 bedroom unit is in the Larkspur Isle complex.  Supposedly, this is one of the few that have its own washer and dryer, a big draw.  The home looks well maintained and the wood floors and detailing definitely add a nice touch.

330 Madrone Ave – 3 beds/ 2 baths, 5,009SF – $1,249,000:  On the market for over 90 days, this home sits in the woods amongst towering trees.  The prices is $150K lower than its original ask.  Remodeling has been done to this home which was originally built in 1908.   Just like the town….

81 Diane Ln – 4 beds/ 3 baths, 2,200SF – $1,790,000:  Be the first to live in this one, a new construction that seems very nicely done with all the high end touches.
