Welcome home to 2616 Carlmont Drive

This newer enclave of 30 single family homes is located on a quiet cul-de-sac nestled in the Hidden Valley Canyon referred to originally as Rancho de las Pulgas. This property sits upon an enormous 20,500 lot, and backs to protected open space where no one can build behind the property. At the end of the cul-de-sac is the Carlmont entrance to Waterdog Lake Park and Trailhead, adjacent 260 acres of open space and a multi-use trail system for hiking and mountain biking.

Enjoy a milder micro-climate of this neighborhood tucked well away in the idyllic canyon valley.

Step upon a slate entry porch into the capacious great room with newly refinished natural flooring, a neutral tone color scheme, lofty ceilings, and abundant natural light illuminated by celestial windows found throughout the home—a gas see-through fireplace adorned with river rock stone façade is the centerpiece of the room, and ideal for cool winters. Incorporated into this great room, is a large communal dining area—perfect for gatherings of friends or family.

The open-style kitchen allows for an expansive experience to the great room which embraces a separate space for casual meals and remains deeply functional and gazes out to an inviting outdoor entertainment space. Boasting an eat-at kitchen over intriguing granite counters, the kitchen sports stainless appliances including Bosch™ dishwasher, GE™built-in microwave, and combination GE™ oven and gas stove. The LG™ French door refrigerator offers room for a bounty of food and includes an in-door ice and water dispenser. The bright wood cabinetry has with crown trim and ambient LED lighting atop. 

From here one can step outside to the spacious and well-designed rear ConHart redwood deck, offering a multitude of space for al fresco dining, barbeques, watching the native deer stroll by, the birds enjoying a refreshing bath, or just relaxing by a fire. A private and expansive rear yard—with designer landscape features—offers easily maintained grounds.

The enchanting rear hillside is adorned with drought resistant plantings providing a wash of flowering color to titillate one’s senses including the sweet smell emanating from the Jasmine hedge. Up a short pathway one can stroll to the pinnacle of the yard which offers stunning pastoral Hidden Valley Canyon views.

Inside, the grand living room boasts radiance from 18-foot soaring ceilings, and additional celestial windows on all outside walls bathing the room with natural sunlight. This room shares the see-through gas fireplace with a handsome neutral tone marble façade. 

A convenient half-bath is also on this level and has a rich cabinetry sink with porcelain bowl and stainless faucet over granite. A sizeable laundry room includes an GE™ washer and Samsung™ dryer. A utility sink is basked in light by the glass block wall and has a cultured marble counter space—perfect for folding clothes.

On the home’s second level we find three bedrooms—including the Owner’s ensuite—with cathedral ceilings recessed lighting and a copious walk-in closet. This suite’s bath is enhanced with neutral tile and accent inlay floor, dual sinks, a seamless glass door shower and separate jetted soaking tub. 

At the front of the upstairs portion of the home are two generous bedrooms near a newly tiled hall bath featuring dual sinks, a shower-over-tub design, and stainless waterfall style faucets.

Located in the Heart of the Peninsula, this city once hosted vacationers from San Francisco. Summer retreats began popping up on Belmont’s bucolic hillsides to supply respite and relaxation as well as an escape from the cool city fog. 

This home, with its attractive curb appeal and well-designed landscaping and softscape, retains a feeling of being away at a country resort for a weekend retreat and at the same time living serenely with today’s amenities and access to modern amenities. 

This location is coveted for its beauty, relative seclusion, access to open space, Hidden Canyon Park, and hiking and biking trails. Not far is the Carlmont Village Shopping Center which offers a variety of retailers, restaurants and popular gathering spots, such as Starbucks, Vivace Ristorante and Waterdog Tavern featuring craft cocktails and pet-friendly outdoor dining and the local go-to spot, Lorenzo’s Sandwich Shop. Other businesses include Chase Bank, Bank of America, Hassett’s ACE Hardware, and the upscale Lunardi’s Grocery. For shopping, Hillsdale Mall is a short drive away and has completed an entire renovation with Nordstrom, Macy’s, Williams-Sonoma, Sephora and Trader Joe’s. One can savor dining options at the new Dining Terrace, Paul Martin’s American Grill, The Cheesecake Factory, California Pizza Kitchen, and The Counter.

Belmont is ideally positioned on the Peninsula between the Silicon Valley and City of San Francisco. The location is popular because of its proximity to major travel arteries—Highways 101, 280, 92. Caltrain, San Francisco International Airport and Coastal towns are conveniently nearby.
