In 2009, Forbes Magazine named Redwood Shores one of America’s Top-Selling Luxury Neighborhoods, thanks to the community’s large homes, beautiful setting and top-rate public schools, part of the Redwood Shores-Belmont district. This waterfront community apart from the rest of the Peninsula, beginning with its setting. Like Foster City, Redwood Shores was created on land reclaimed from San Francisco Bay. Development was made possible when Leslie Salt filled in its ponds and marshes, creating solid land but leaving the lagoons and canals that make Redwood Shores so unique. Living in Redwood Shores means water views for almost everyone and backyard docks for many. It means taking the boat to the grocery store and lounging on the deck, watching the egrets and great blue herons skim across the water.
Though it was originally conceived as a residential community and has very little in the way of restaurants and stores, Redwood Shores has recently made a name for itself as a hub for the high tech industry. When Oracle came, others followed, including gaming giant Electronic Arts, whose headquarters sits across Redwood Shores Parkway from The Marketplace, Redwood Shores’ only major shopping center. Restaurant choices at The Marketplace run toward fast food and Starbucks, but that’s okay with Redwood Shores residents. Laurel Street, the shopping and dining center of downtown San Carlos, is only 3.5 miles from the Redwood Shores lagoon, and the Hillsdale Shopping Center, in San Mateo, is a 10-minute drive away. Redwood Shores gets the best of both worlds: convenience and quiet. Redwood Shores is located in the 94065 zip code, and as a master planned community it contains a good mixture of single family homes, condominiums, and townhomes to choose from.
