Largest Hidden Valley Floorplan

Tranquil Canyon Setting              

Welcome home to 2626 Carlmont Drive

This newer enclave of thirty single family homes is located on a quiet cul-de-sac nestled in the Hidden Canyon Valley, referred to originally as Rancho de las Pulgas. Built in 1997, these homes enjoy modern built-in fire suppression systems. This, the largest of the Blackwell floorplans, is a French Provincial influence inspired home and enjoys an enormous 14,652 square foot lot that backs up to protected open space where no one can currently 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 as this neighborhood is tucked away in the idyllic Hidden Canyon valley.

Step upon a slate entry porch into the capacious rooms for entertaining. The great room has built-in ambient speakers, with a gas see-through fireplace as the centerpiece of the room—flanked by rustic wall scones, and a custom built-in cabinetry and mantle. Incorporated into this great room, is a large communal dining area and eat at bar—perfect for social gatherings.

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 while providing access to the inviting outdoor entertainment space. 

Boasting an eat-at kitchen with recessed lighting, this chef inspired kitchen sports a custom designed semi-commercial hood and professional Wolf gas stove and oven combination. More stainless appliances including ASCO® dishwasher and KitchenAid® refrigerator. The rich wood cabinetry and durable smooth surface Corian® countertops complete the French provincial motif.

From here one can step outside to the spacious and slate patio offering a multitude of space for al fresco dining, barbeques, watching the native deer stroll by, or just relaxing by a fire. A private and expansive rear yard offers easily maintained grounds.

Inside, the grand living room features a celestial skylight and glass brick wall for natural sunlight. This room shares the see-through gas fireplace with a custom regal wood mantle and inlaid rich marble neutral tone hearth and façade. 

A convenient half-bath is also on the first level with a porcelain pedestal sink and bronze accoutrements. A sizable laundry room includes a Whirlpool was & dryer with a utility sink and large counter space—perfect for folding clothes.

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

Unique to this home, is the fourth bedroom currently outfitted as an office and open to the upper landing with floor to ceiling custom built-in bookshelves and a prominent executive desk. 

At the front of the upstairs portion of the home are two generous bedrooms near a hall bath featuring dual sinks, a shower-over-tub design, and stainless 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 minimal maintenance landscaping 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.
