"A Classic Wealthy Neighborhood"

Nowhere is the wealth of the city of Piedmont more grandly displayed than in the Piedmont Estates neighborhood. The leafy sloping lanes of this area are lined with stately manors whose dormers and Mansard roofs stare imposingly down on passersby. There are a variety of architectural styles here, but the quiet, picturesque streets make one feel as if they are walking through story book vision of an early twentieth century wealthy neighborhood. There are also quaint Tudors and beautifully arranged Spanish Revival style homes here, tall pine trees and narrow winding lanes. Put simply, the neighborhood exudes both wealth and beauty as few others do.

At the corners of the neighborhood one finds Reservoir Two (in the northeast), Piedmont Sports Field (southeast), Crocker Park (southwest though away from the neighborhood’s border), and Piedmont High School (northwest). Although you are in walking distance of the quaint little village area of Piedmont and slightly farther on the Piedmont Avenue neighborhood and its many restaurants, the Piedmont Estates neighborhood is a purely residential neighborhood.
Pros

  • Quiet and Safe
Cons

Recommended for
