The Town of Larkspur
One of the most spectacular features of houses in Larkspur is the scenery surrounding them. Redwoods rule in Larkspur. In Baltimore and Madrone Canyons, giant redwoods grow straight out of the roadway, while the streets gently curve their way around these massive trees.
Tucked away under the redwoods beneath Mount Tam, Larkspur boasts world-class restaurants, including the Lark Tavern. The main street, Magnolia Avenue, is a vibrant destination for food lovers who frequent Picco, Cafe Rulli, and the Left Bank Brasserie. The Lark Theater, also on Magnolia, has been recently restored to its art deco glory by a community effort that supports first run films and live music performances.
The Larkspur/Corte Madera path runs a few blocks parallel to Magnolia, on a former railroad right-of-way, and is popular with families, dog walkers, and bikers on their way to Pt Reyes.
Larkspur and neighboring town Corte Madera share one of the best school districts in the state, with Redwood High School consistently achieving API scores in the high 880s.
