PIEDMONT Piedmont is a primarily residential community with fine architecture and tree-lined streets. Due to its 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.
In the 1920’s Piedmont was known as the “City of Millionaires” because there were more resident millionaires per square mile than in any city in the United States. Many of these millionaires built mansions which still stand today. Piedmont is largely zoned for residential use. It has one intimate commercial district in the center of town along Highland Avenue consisting of a gas station, three banks, some professional offices and a small convenience store. Piedmont also has several beautiful parks and a community center and offers numerous “hometown”celebrations including it’s annual 4th of July parade.
