Why I Love Living in Kent Woodlands…


Proximity to Mount Tamalpais.

Hopping on your bike or stepping out the door directly onto our network of fire roads and trails makes meeting a daily step goal or Strava challenge easy to achieve. If dogs are your favorite exercise partner, the 3 miles of flat fire road, where dogs can roam off leash, as well as numerous trail extensions along the route (dogs on leash) make trail runs and vigorous hikes the best with our furry friends.

Award Winning Public Schools.

A great aspect of living in Kent Woodlands would be the excellent public schools;  Bacich, Kent and Redwood High School are the reason so many families choose this location when fleeing urban living. The demographics of this community are a good mix of young families with school age children and older retirees and empty nest boomers. Many Kent Woodlands homeowners have been in their homes for over 25 years.

Community Events.

Every year the neighborhood HOA (Kent Woodlands Property Association) hosts a number of community events. One of the neighborhood favorites is the Halloween Parade when lower Woodland Road is closed to traffic and Kentfield Fire trucks lead a procession of ghosts, goblins, witches and action hero’s to neighbor treat tables. The  annual holiday party, usually held the first Sunday in December, is hosted in the exterior annex at Guesthouse. Recently the community began hosting food truck events held in our Acorn parking lot at the entrance to Kent Woodlands in May and September. In a hillside community with no sidewalks to meet and greet your neighbors, this has proven to be a popular event.

Shopping & Dining

Woodland’s Market and Cafe, located at the entrance to Kent Woodlands, is a neighborhood favorite and the unofficial community center of the neighborhood. Known for gourmet food to go, catered meals, custom and speciality sandwiches and a wide selection of organic and locally sourced foods it is also the after school crowd’s favorite post school hangout. A few blocks from the entrance to the neighborhood is Rustic Bakery known for their decadent scones, cinnamon rolls, croissants and fresh baked breads. The lunch hour usually means lines out the door but if you order to go you’ll miss the lines and the long wait. GuestHouse is a fairly new addition to the neighborhood and has become the go to dinner spot with innovative menu items and a very popular full bar with some of the friendliest bartenders in the area
