Belvedere real estate offers old-world elegance and intimate views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge. This is where well-to-do San Franciscans built their country mansions in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Belvedere Island, the smaller Corinthian Island, and Belvedere Lagoon comprise this magical location at the end of the Tiburon Peninsula. The Belvedere Lagoon, connecting Belvedere Island to the mainland, is serene and a sunny water setting for many elegant homes---it's like a beach front without the waves.
Acclaimed Tiburon schools, also serving Belvedere, are among the best in the nation.
The China Cabin on Beach Road in Belvedere (a short walk west of downtown Tiburon) was the social saloon of the SS CHINA (1866), beached on Belvedere Cove in 1886. The gilded and well-restored Victorian drawing room was salvaged before the side wheeler was burned for scrap metal. It is open to the public on Wednesday and Sunday from 1 to 4 pm, April through October. You can rent this waterfront cabin from the Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society for special gatherings.
Walking in Belvedere. The best way to absorb the charm and elegance of Belvedere is from a boat or kayak on the Bay, or by walking its winding streets.
