Redwood Shores

Overview

Located east of Belmont and San Carlos, the masterfully-planned 1,500 acre community of Redwood Shores lies in between Foster City and Redwood City. Occupying an area formerly known as Redwood Peninsula, the history of this picturesque region dates back centuries ago to its habitation by the Ohlone tribe. Today, Redwood Shores has evolved into the headquarters of world-famous industry leaders like software giant Oracle and entertainment software company Electronic Arts. This idyllic community is also home to many other businesses, including the Sofitel Hotel and branches of Ernst & Young and DHL.

Residents appreciate the serenity of their setting, as well as its abundance of jogging trails and the beautiful, 76-acre Redwood Shores Lagoon. Although this community provides several townhome, condominium, and apartment complexes, Redwood Shores is mainly populated with single-family residences, many of which are waterfront real estate and homes for sale that include private boat docks. The tranquil surroundings and rich, abundant offerings of this scenic locale give Redwood Shores a unique appeal that very few other communities enjoy.
