"Nice Hilly San Rafael Neighborhood"

California Park is a pretty typical hillside neighborhood around these parts. It has nice sloping streets with homes set up along them to make the best of the views here--which are mostly of the valley below from these locations.

You get all the typical hillside problems here, of course, like erosion and critters eating your gardens and getting into your garbage. But you also get the great schools and the benefits of being close to everything from nice restaurants to hiking and beaches.

Of course, this is Marin County so you can expect to pay a couple of extra hundred k here for the privilege of living amongst the wealthy. Most people are happy to so, however, if they can afford it.
