Quiet neighborhood steps from Oakland and 20 minutes from San Francisco

Welcome to our family- friendly house and street. Piedmont is a wealthy small area inside of Oakland. We are on a quiet block with a 10 minute walk to the shops, restaurants, parks, Saturday market and lake of Oakland. Our house has an outdoor sitting area, BBQ and dining area plus bikes and a car to exchange. There in a bus stop 5 min from the house and the BART train to San Francisco is 2 miles away. It's a 15 min train ride to downtown San Francisco. You can do easy day trips to the beach, hikes in the hills and exploring the cities of San Francisco, Oakland and Berkeley. It is also a 1-hour drive to the famous Napa wine region. So much to do!

About Our Family

We are an active family of boys. I, Shannon, am a high school principal at the high school in town up the street from our house. We all walk to school together in the morning. I drop Joaquin (age 11), Gael (age 10) and Ramon (age 8) at their schools on the way. (This school has a great field and playground just a short walk from our place.) My husband Angel runs a business from home working to raise money for solar energy projects. We are a Spanish-English bilingual family as Angel is Mexican-American. We are very social and enjoy hosting events for all of the wonderful kids and neighbors on our block. We live in an amazing area and really appreciate all we can walk to in our area.
