This spacious 1 bedroom + bonus room (which could be used as a spare bedroom, den, office, or kid's room) and 1 bath condo is situated in the highly desirable Lauriedale Condos. Great value with the condo priced as a one bedroom but, with the bonus room, effectively functions as a higher-priced two bedroom. The open floor plan has a large living area that flows between the kitchen, dining area, and living room. An exclusive outdoor balcony overlooks the pool and lush courtyard, and is ideal for entertaining and outdoor dining.
This condo includes a number of extra amenities such as multiple pools, a clubhouse, tennis courts, and a gym. In addition, it includes a large 10' x 10' secure storage unit conveniently located below the condo. New windows, dishwasher, oven and light fixtures were all installed in the last couple years. Centrally located between the tech-hubs of Silicon Valley and San Francisco, this condo is conveniently situated to access all that the Bay Area has to offer and close to a variety of transportation options including easy freeway access, tech shuttles, Caltrain, and walking distance to neighborhood parks and restaurants.

Belmont, which translates to “beautiful mountain,” is located about halfway between San Francisco and San Jose. This city’s roots trace back to about 1850, two years prior to the carving out of San Mateo County. Until about 50 years ago, Belmont was largely pastoral, a part of the 35,000-acre Rancho Las Pulgas.
The Ralston Mansion is a historical landmark, built in the 1860s by William Ralston, founder of the Bank of California. The grand palace has been restored and features a hall of mirrors, a grand staircase, crystal chandeliers and a ballroom filled with an impressive collection of period antiques reminiscent of the Palace of Versailles. Tours are offered during the week, and the mansion is available for social celebrations.
1870 Gallery and Studios is a cooperative, with more than 25 artists participating in a variety of media. Local and global artists’ works are featured regularly, and various cultural events are offered including seminars, workshops and classes for all ages.
While the Stanford Shopping Center is nearby, the Belmont Plaza Shopping Center presents a broad spectrum of shopping and dining opportunities with a charming village ambience. And, of course, the Farmers Market is every Sunday, rain or shine, complete with locally-grown produce and home-grown entertainment.
Over the past several decades Belmont has grown and flourished into an upscale address for some of the Bay Area’s distinguished luminaries.
