Joseph Eichler was brilliant in situating his Marin Eichler communities, validating the old real estate axiom that the number one rule in real estate is Location, Location, Location. Located in one of the most beautiful parts of California, Marin’s Eichler neighborhoods have top-rated school districts and easy access to commuting, recreation, entertainment, and shopping. Of the 1700+ homes Eichler built in Marin County, approximately 900 of them are in the Terra Linda community of San Rafael. Six hundred Eichler homes can be found in Terra Linda North and the remaining 220 are in the Terra Linda South tract.
The Terra Linda South Eichlers were designed by two of Joseph Eichler’s favored architectural teams, Jones & Emmons and Anshen + Allen in the late 1950s to 1960. Most of the homes are 3 and 4-bedroom models with atriums or courtyards. The Eichlers in Terra Linda South are located along the main thoroughfares of Golden Hinde Blvd., Nova Albion Way and Devon Drive, as well as smaller streets and courts including Arcangel Way, Ayala Court, Anchorage Court, Del Haro Way, De Anza Way, Corte Pacheco, Cermenho Court, Don Timotea Court, Sussex Court, and Drakes Cove.
The Eichler tract in Terra Linda South is a family-friendly community, and the streets off the main drag are quiet. With easy access to the freeway, Terra Linda South is in a handy location for commuters and life’s amenities are nearby at the Northgate Mall and numerous smaller strip malls. On Sundays, farmers and specialty food vendors display their wares at the Civic Center Farmers Market, which is one of the area’s largest markets and only a mile from the center of the TLS Eichler neighborhood.
Children living in Terra Linda South Eichler homes attend school in the Dixie School District, a highly desirable district with a reputation for great schools. Younger students attend Vallecito Elementary School (grades K-5) and older kids attend Miller Creek Middle School. Terra Linda High School is in the community and within walking distance for students living in the TLS Eichler tract.
