Belmont Woods Homes For Sale / Bay View Heights Homes For Sale
1. Neighborhood Introduction & History
Bay View Heights: Just west of El Camino and south of Ralston, this hillside neighborhood has genuine character. It and neighboring Brookhaven are two of Belmont‘s oldest neighborhoods, with many homes from the 20s and 30s. While most are modest, what really gives this area some punch is the sprinkling of large, even majestic Spanish Revival homes that have excellent Bay Views.
Belmont Woods: Belmont Woods homes for sale are located up the hills in Belmont, and offer homeowners great views, outdoor opportunities and serenity. This neighborhood contains one of the city’s finest subdivisions (Hallmark), some of its newest subdivisions, almost all of its large- scale apartment complexes and some of its most wide-open, uninhabited land, featuring protected open space and an extensive series of hiking trails running from Ralston Avenue all the way into San Carlos.
2. Housing types & styles in the Neighborhood
Belmont Woods homes for sale attract homebuyers looking for space, modern homes and San Francisco Bay Views. Most homes were built between the 1960s and today, and offer large square footages and ample lot sizes. Hallmark homes are at the top of the Belmont market, lately selling for $1.3 million and up.

Other areas of Belmont Woods offer similar housing options and prices.
Bay View Heights offers charming homes from the 1920s and 30s interspersed with a few large and stately Spanish Revival houses. Although the neighborhood is favored by nature in one respect— it’s not directly in the path of the ocean wind blowing in through the Highway 92 gap— it seems to act as a sort of natural amphitheater for traffic noise from Highway 101. Prices vary, but even the Spanish Revival homes are surprisingly affordable (by Bay Area standards).

Some of the newer subdivisions in this area abut wide-open & uninhabited land, protected open space and extensive series of hiking trails that run from Ralston Avenue all the way into San Carlos.
