Bay Area Real Estate

Piedmont was home to a dairy farm on Highland Avenue and a large amusement park that were both owned by Walter Blair. In the late 1800’s a gentleman named James Gamble bought three hundred and fifty acres from Mr. Blair with the intent of subdividing the land for others to build large homes. He named his company “The Piedmont Land Company”. The name Piedmont translates to “The Foot Of The Mountain” in Italian. The name seemed to be a natural fit for the location at the time and is where the City of Piedmont gets its name. There was one house that particularly stood out named the Highlands that was painted bright yellow. The home was unique for the fact that it was visible too much of the Bay Area from a far.

There were only a few homes in Piedmont at the time until the event of the 1906 earthquake when much of San Francisco flocked to other parts of the Bay and many never returned. Piedmont grew more than ten times from 1906-1907 and in 1907 the vote was passed to incorporate Piedmont into its own City. Piedmont during the 1920’s became known as the “City Of Millionaires” for the very simple reason that there were more millionaires per square mile than any other city in the United States.

Not much has changed. The City of Piedmont today is rated the third wealthiest per capita city in all of California and one of the wealthiest in the Country. The lifestyle for many who reside in Piedmont is quite lavish and lush with the average income being in the top percentile. There are many fine estates with gates, plush grounds and panoramic Bay Views. Piedmont has some of the best weather in the Bay Area with temperatures that rarely get too hot or cold.

The Public School District is rated one of the very best in the entire state of California and education is a top priority there. The majority of Piedmont high students continue on to some of the most prestigious Universities in the Country such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Georgetown and MIT. Piedmont is neighbors with the Oakland and Berkeley hills and such local communities as Montclair, Rockridge, Lakeshore and Piedmont Avenue offering many restaurants and shops.

Piedmont Avenue (in Oakland) is home to the famous Fenton’s Ice Cream Parlor that is well know all over the world. Piedmont is a fabulous place to call home the Oakland and Berkeley hills close by, the easy access to many up-scale communities with tons of restaurants, shops, stores and lavish markets such as Market Hall or Piedmont Grocery. There is also a farmers market every Sunday morning on LaSalle Avenue in the Montclair Village offering fresh produce and many other items.
