Why live in a town that has no downtown, no shops, and is only about one square mile in size? Because it’s paradise, that’s why! Belvedere is an incredibly desirable place to live and one of the most affluent communities in the country, so it’s no surprise that homes come with a correspondingly high price tag. The town’s property values are a function of its proximity to The City and its breathtaking location, as it’s surrounded on three sides by the San Francisco Bay and offers world famous views of San Francisco, Angel Island, the Golden Gate Bridge, Mount Tamalpais and Sausalito. Many homes in Belvedere were designed by acclaimed architects and are located either on the dramatic hillsides of Belvedere Island, in the flats along Belvedere Lagoon, or on the shore of the San Francisco Bay. It’s a tight-knit community where residents can be found gathering at the town’s newly renovated park, at tony fundraisers, or launching boats from the docks of the local yacht club. It’s an amazing location if you can afford it, and the amenities of neighboring Tiburon are just a stone’s throw away.
