Redwood Shores

Overview

Interlaced with waterways and lagoons, Redwood Shores creates a marine haven for both world-famous enterprises and luxury residential developments. Its breathtaking scenery forms the backdrop for an exciting type of lifestyle rarely found elsewhere in the Bay Area.

 

An Interesting Background

The land that forms Redwood Shores juts out into San Francisco Bay alongside its neighbor, Foster City. It was built up from marshlands in the 1960s, becoming a master-planned community that would eventually accommodate both residential and commercial uses. The directly adjacent cities of Belmont and San Carlos declined to adopt the fledgling Redwood Shores community, so Redwood City stepped in to help its neighbor. As a result, Redwood Shores now belongs to Redwood City even though the two communities are not connected; at present, there is not a way to access one directly from the other via automobile.

 

Sought-After Qualities

Redwood Shores’ distinguished zip code represents a blend of commercial developments, luxury homes, and multi-family complexes. Offering a place of quiet sanctuary along with the convenience of surrounding cities, Redwood Shores is truly the best of both worlds. It has even been named among Forbes magazine’s list of top luxury neighborhoods in America due to its quality planning and designs, dreamy setting, and top-rated public schools.

 

Incomparable Living

For residents, the quality of life is what sets this neighborhood apart from the rest of the Peninsula. They can bask in gorgeous coastal surroundings while having excellent proximity to recreation, work, and school. Just beyond the boundaries of the vicinity await shopping centers, fine dining, and popular downtown attractions. Plus, residents are close to Caltrain and San Francisco International Airport for easy access to destinations in the Bay Area and beyond. This balance of convenience and relaxation is a treasured commodity to modern working singles, couples, and families, and makes Redwood Shores unlike any other residential experience available.

 

Corporate Convenience

Residents aren’t the only ones wooed by the area’s tantalizing features. Several major technology companies, including Oracle Corporation, Electronic Arts, Nintendo, and Shutterfly, have been attracted to the area, taking advantage of its scenery and relatively calm atmosphere. Redwood Shores’ prime location along the western shore of San Francisco Bay is near El Camino Real, Highway 101, and both Dumbarton and San Mateo Bridges, giving employees ease of access while enjoying a resort-style environment.

 

Leisure & Recreation

Living in Redwood Shores means exciting days and nights filled with gorgeous vistas. Many residents enjoy backyard docks from which they can take their boats to run errands, or they can lounge on their decks while watching local wildlife frolic along the waterways. For those who prefer to be more active, Redwood Shores offers seven immaculate parks that include facilities such as tennis courts and playgrounds, plus a seven-mile segment of the 500-mile Bay Trail. Residents regularly wander the community to admire the beauty of the lagoons, luxuriant parks, and glittering expanses of San Francisco Bay.

***

The enthralling experience of working and residing in the lovely coastal community of Redwood Shores makes every day feel like a vacation. As high-income residents continue to populate the Bay Area, luxury developments like Redwood Shores are expected to become only more popular as time goes on.
