"Close to Old Town but Overpriced"

Baltimore is the Larkspur neighborhood just to the south of Old Town. It is mostly a residential neighborhood except around Magnolia where you get some spillover from the “downtown” area. The Italian restaurant Picco is technically in this neighborhood as is The Tavern at Lark Creek, a high ceilinged restaurant and wedding venue that is the fountainhead of half dozen plus Lark Creek restaurants around California.

Most homes in this area are estimated at around $1 million, but you will also find some small 20’s era bungalows that sell for about 3 quarters of that. Although there have been some newer homes added here it mostly still has the wide-laned feel of an older neighborhood and enough of the original homes that were once here to firmly indicate that it is one of the oldest spots in Larkspur.

You get a fair amount of traffic along Magnolia, but the inner streets are pretty quiet. You are fairly close to the Old Town neighborhood as well so you have all the restaurants and stores within walking distance.

Overall this is an okay neighborhood but way overpriced in my opinion, given what it actually offers.
