Less than one square mile in size, Belvedere is surrounded on three sides by beautiful San Francisco Bay. Belvedere is the Italian word for “beautiful view” and,understandably, the community is one of the Bay Area’s most exclusive and desirable. Many Belvedere residences were designed by famous architects and incorporate spectacular views of San Francisco, Angel Island, the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito and Mt. Tamalpais.
Belvedere is located approximately 20 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge. Many residents take the nearby Tiburon Ferry into San Francisco. Tiburon also offers many fine restaurants and boutique shops. The San Francisco Yacht Club – founded in 1869 – callsBelvedere home, while the Corinthian Yacht Club – founded in 1886 – is located in Tiburon. Many of Belvedere’s families are members of one of the two yacht clubs and enjoy their various activities.
