"Forbes-San Rafael's best kept secret"
San Rafael's Forbes neighborhood is west of downtown- close enough to walk but just far enough to have a warm, quiet neighborhood community feel. The neighborhood does have a deep history with the old homes and San Rafael Mission. There are many different style homes from Victorian to the turn of the century mixed with beautiful Mediterraneans and Craftsman style homes. There are a few smaller homes and remodeled bungalows mixed in as well- but everything works together to create one of San Rafael’s most desirable neighborhoods. The popular public Sun Valley Elementary, is a quick drive west down 5th Avenue. Don't forget to stop at Andy's Market for frozen yogurt after school or to pick up a nice bottle of wine and dinner on your way home. Hands down my favorite San Rafael neighborhood!!
