"Nice Hillside Neighborhood With Good Bayside Views"

Bayside Acres is a small, aptly named San Rafael hillside neighborhood with winding lanes and great bay views. As you might expect this is a fairly expensive location. Homes here sell from as little as $625 to as much as $1.7 million--though most are in the $900 to $1mil range, which is about where you would expect them to be. Most homes date from the 1950s and 60s.

You also get the other benefits of Marin County living: good schools and low crime. That combined with the beauty of the location makes for a pretty great combination.

Drawbacks of Bayside Acres mostly have to do with the specifics of the location. If you work in the city, for example, you will have a pretty good commute. You will also have to deal with the usual hillside maintenance problems such as erosion, critters, and wildfires.

If you love leafy, hillside living, however, you are sure to love it here in Bayside.
