Situated in the heart of Hamilton Field with beautiful bay and mountain views, Elegance Hamilton Hill is a relaxed luxury senior living community located near Novato Community Hospital, Kaiser Permanente Terra Linda and MarinHealth Medical Center as well as Hamilton Marketplace, Vintage Oaks Shopping Center, and Hamilton Field History Museum. Wake up every day in a safe, intentionally designed living space.

We tend to the cooking, housekeeping and home maintenance so you can participate in social, cultural and exercise programs including our partnership with The MarinMOCA. Choose a menu of seasonal, nutritious chef-prepared dishes from multiple dining venues.

Enjoy discreet, supportive care, a maintenance-free lifestyle including scheduled transportation, and boutique amenities. Spend every day experiencing greater well-being.


Our Philosophy

We believe a thoughtfully designed environment filled with good neighbors and a caring staff, along with nutritious food, accessible exercise programs and opportunities to connect and engage every day, are the right combination for optimal living.  

For older people living alone, these important elements can become harder to maintain – making home a challenging, unsafe, even lonely place to be.  

That’s why we offer a community for older people where living is easier, surroundings are safer – and together is better.

If your loved one is not thriving in their senior living community, you should strongly consider a move to Elegance at Hamilton Hill. Set in the quaint, historic, safe and peaceful setting of the former Hamilton Air Force Base, Elegance sits atop... an oak-lined hill occupying the renovated former military hospital. The renovations preserved the historic features while adding all the modern amenities and state of the art infrastructure one would expect of a modern senior living community.When you walk through the entrance, you know you have arrived. The artwork is stunning, furnishings are modern with clean lines, and the environment is open, grand, filled with light and impeccably clean.Most importantly however, are the staffing and services that Elegance provides. My parent arrived from another facility lonely, isolated and withdrawn. In their prior setting, my parent had not made any connections with fellow residents, participated in any activities and remained isolated in their room sleeping or eating alone day after day. After just 2 weeks at Elegance, they are engaged fully with both residents and staff, eating communally, learning and enjoying themselves. Elegance offers a full roster of stimulating daily activities from movement exercises, reading groups, entertainment, singing and of course music and movies. My parent comments: "There is always something to do. I love eating with the other residents and the food is fantastic. The staff are gentle, intelligent and kind. I am so happy here. I didn't think that I would ever be this happy again." When your parent is here, the burden of worry is lifted and you can feel confident that your loved one is safe in the careful hands of caring, attentive and professional, well-trained staff. Stop by for a tour, it is truly in a class of its more

This well-known Spanish revival-style building was once the home of the historic Hamilton hospital at the former Hamilton U.S. Airforce Base. This beautiful building has been masterfully repurposed and renovated into an 80-unit senior assisted... living center with 40 rooms designated for luxury Assisted Living and 40 additional rooms for Memory Care residents. Built with their affiliated development partner, Elegance Living, and working closely with the Novato City Council, this thoroughly modernized senior living community has preserved the architectural integrity of the entire front facade that epitomizes the building’s landmark Spanish Mediterranean architecture. They’ve also expanded the central courtyard to allow for sunlight, landscaping and space for a variety of outdoor activities. Elegance at Novato has been designed to provide a wonderful home environment for older adults who are still fairly active and independent but may require assistance with some of the activities of daily living. The community also features a separate wing and services for those adults suffering from some form of memory impairment or dementia. This amazing new housing option is something Novato has desperately needed and is now a chance for people to stay in the area they love. I am so proud of this project and it gives me great joy to see it realized. My Mom's dying wish 11 years ago was to see that seniors had options to live in Novato - now 11 years later it has happened. I know it will mean everything to her to see that seniors have that opportunity today. I am proud to say I was Mayor the year this came to fruition.Denise Athas, Mayor of the City of Novatoread more
