Piedmont Real Estate
Located in the East Bay hills, Piedmont is surrounded on all sides by the city of Oakland. Piedmont is a small town feel, primarily residential community surrounded on all sides by the City of Oakland. It's primarily residential community with fine architecture and tree-lined streets. Due to its excellent school system, low crime rate and good weather 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.
Piedmont, literally foot of the hills in Italian, sits at the base of the Oakland Hills and almost centrally in regards to the Bay Area’s fuller shape, putting it nearly directly across the Bay Bridge from San Francisco, and very close to Berkeley.
Piedmont also has several beautiful parks and a community center and offers numerous “hometown” celebrations including its annual 4th of July parade, Turkey Trot Run on Thanksgiving morning and concerts in the park.Below: Piedmont Fenton's Creamery, a local favorite.
Piedmont is known for its public school system with three elementary schools (Havens, Beach, and Wildwood), a middle school (Piedmont Middle School), a high school (Piedmont High School), and an alternative high school (Millennium). Piedmont High School matriculates a high percentage (over 98%) of students bound for college. A very involved parent community continues to be a key factor in the strength of the public schools in Piedmont.
