Piedmont Real Estate

    Piedmont is a small, primarily residential community with fine architecture, tree-lined streets, and competitive city schools. Due to its school system, low crime rate, good weather, and high property values, it is regarded as one of the most desirable residential communities in the San Francisco Bay Area. Property in Piedmont is markedly more expensive than real estate in neighboring communities. Today, Piedmont remains notable for its minimal amount of commerce when compared to its statistically similar counterparts. However there is plentiful shopping in adjacent Oakland neighborhoods such as Piedmont Avenue, Montclair, Grand Lake, and Rockridge. Piedmont is largely zoned for residential use. It has a small commercial district in the center of town along Highland Avenue that includes a gas station, three banks (including Citibank, Wells Fargo, and Bank of America), a realty office, some professional offices and a small convenience store named Bonfare and has a small number of commercial enterprises along Grand Avenue near the southern Oakland border. The city is served by two local weekly newspapers–the citizen-run Piedmont Post, and the Piedmonter, a neighborhood newspaper organized under the Contra Costa Times news organization. Piedmont also has several parks and a community center. Points of interest in Piedmont include; Tiddlywinks, Tot Zone, Dracena Park, Blair Park, Piedmont Park, Linda Pathway, Kennelly Skate Park, Coaches Playfield, Baja Piedmont, Seaview, Beach Elementary, Piedmont Community Church, Piedmont Adult School, Piedmont Choir, Piedmont Neighbors and Newcomers Club, Piedmont Soccer Club, Piedmont-Montclair Rotary, Camp Augusta, and Piedmont Swim Club.
