Belmont is a quiet and culturally diverse bedroom community of nearly 27,000 residents that’s located almost at the mid-point of the Peninsula between San Jose and San Francisco. Known for its hilly terrain and its eclectic architecture, Belmont has fast become a target destination for Peninsula home buyers because of its excellent public schools and relative housing affordability.
Residents of Belmont don’t need to head to other cities for dining and shopping. At the hub of city is the Carlmont Village Shopping Center, which is a chic mix of specialty shops, restaurants, and a grocery store. You can find everything you need here.
Like other small communities along the mid-Peninsula, Belmont offers great connections to commute routes, with direct connections to both highways 280 and 101, as well a full-service CalTrain station right in the heart of the city. It may have once been a well-kept secret gem on the Peninsula, but Belmont now basks in its own glow.
