Kentfield is located in the heart of Marin County. It offers the outdoor recreation of country life and the convenience of a central location. It is minutes away from Larkspur Landing ferries, the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge, and the Golden Gate Bridge, yet sits at the base of towering Mount Tamalpais and next to Baltimore Canyon Preserve and Creekside Park. Hiking, biking, picnicking, and walking are all activities enjoyed by the 6,485 residents that call Kentfield home. Property in Kentfield is generally set well back from the streets, which meander among pine, redwood and manzanita. The low-profile roofs of these spacious homes, mostly set on large lots, are designed to blend in with the natural surroundings and offer a wooded, country feeling. This gives the area a feeling of modernism with all of its amenities but also offers a sense of naturalness with an appreciation for the surrounding environment. Kentfield is home to nationally renowned schools and this too makes Kentfield an excellent place to raise a family.
