Morningside/Brookside is considered to be a convenient, family-oriented neighborhood with easy access to the Redhill shopping district, Downtown San Anselmo, and Fairfax. Here you’ll find a plethora of architectural styles, including Spanish Mediterranean, Arts and Crafts, bungalows, and California Ranch homes. Homes tend to be well-maintained, medium in size, on flat lots, with great neighborhood charm and outdoor recreations nearby.
Morningside/Brookside is known for having a festive and tight-knit neighborhood community—as well as being a favored trick-or-treating destination for many kids on Halloween. Most locals are familiar with the secret stairway leading from Brookside/Morningside to Faude Park Open Space. Faude Park, a 14-acre hilltop park, has foot trails and what many consider to be the best views in all of San Anselmo.
Brookside Elementary School, a California Distinguished School, and Drake High School are both within walking distance from this very desirable neighborhood.
