With unparalleled views of the San Francisco Bay and skyline, Claremont/Uplands is the pinnacle of upscale California living. Nestled in beautifully wooded hills just 12 miles from San Francisco, this historic area is dotted with parks, broad medians filled with redwood trees, hidden pathways and winding walking paths.
The neighborhood's best known landmark is the world-renowned Claremont Resort & Spa. A former private "castle" built by a successful gold prospector, the Claremont opened to the public in 1915 as a retreat for wealthy San Franciscans to escape from the fog for a day on the sunny side of the Bay. This area still caters to those seeking the best in life.
Two upscale retail shopping areas serve local residents with specialty stores like Rick and Ann's, Bread Garden Bakery, Jutta's Flowers and Afikomen Jewish Books.
The celebrated Claremont/Uplands real estate includes a range of architectural styles including English and shingled cottages and prairie spreads. Custom-designed residences are equally as popular, with numerous contemporary dwellings and magnificent Italian and Spanish period revivals to choose from. The stately residences are often accompanied by wonderfully manicured gardens, adding even more allure to this picturesque area.
