Throughout the past century, Marin County has harbored an impressive number of extraordinary residents. Cooking legend Julia Child, talented musicians like Jerry Garcia, Janis Joplin and Tony Bennett. Even film legends Marilyn Monroe, George Lucas and, of course, the unforgettable Robin Williams have called the region home. Most of the towns in the county date back to the late 19th century, once serving as luxurious vacation getaways for wealthy San Franciscans who wanted a piece of Marin’s sunny scenic vistas and an escape from the city’s chilly summer fog.
Whether it’s the gorgeous weather, proximity to both the city and Wine Country, or simply the beauty of the land itself, people have always flocked to Marin, and these historic homes have hosted some seriously fabulous figures. And the best part? These fabled homes are available now.
