After my fun and fruitful day at the Piedmont Community Church Garage Sale last weekend I really wanted to go back and take a leisurely walk around the beautiful neighborhoods that give Piedmont it's reputation as one of the most desirable places to live in the SF Bay Area.
Piedmont is only about a 20-30 minute ride to San Francisco depending on traffic.
Many of the homes have commanding views of downtown Oakland, Lake Merritt, and the San Francisco Bay Bridge.
Even though our weather has been gorgeous, it is still a bit hazy.
Spectacular views of Lake Merritt.
My Mom and Dad would drive up here as teenagers and dream about how one day they would live in Piedmont and raise a family.
Piedmont is known for it's mansions,
but what I love most about Piedmont is the beautiful landscaping!
I've never seen such attention to detail and meticulous landscape maintenance anywhere!
Piedmont has a thing for tulips in the Spring.
There are lots of dramatic entry's.
But what makes Piedmont so unique...
are settings like this...
that look right out of a fairytale.
This vintage beauty sits smack dab in the middle of this bucolic setting!
A peak into the entry.
Thanks for coming along on my walk today :)
