Homes for Sale in Belmont, CA

Belmont is a city within the vibrant Bay Area that holds a unique historical charm.

It was established in the 1850s as a stagecoach station and was once associated with William C. Ralston, a Bank of California magnate. He transformed Count Leonetto Cipriani’s hillside villa into his ornate mansion, which now stands as the heart of Notre Dame de Namur University. From the chrysanthemum center of the country in the early 1940s, Belmont evolved into a quiet residential community featuring single-story homes, duplexes to fourplexes, and condos. These enclaves offer panoramic views of San Francisco, the Bay Bridge, and the East Bay Hills, creating a tranquil and scenic atmosphere. The city also boasts excellent connectivity, with Cal Train stations and convenient access to major routes such as 280, 82, 92, and 101.
