Foster City Spotlight

<br />

Foster City is one of the most beautiful cities in San Mateo County and offers a lifestyle that can’t be found in most places.  There are five miles of lagoons enabling many home owners to launch from their backyards.  Not to worry if there’s no boat dock out back, there are over 15 parks interspersed throughout the city - you can always find one within walking distance.

Many who relocate to the Peninsula love Foster City not only for its close proximity to San Francisco and Silicon Valley but for the short commute it affords those who live and work in the area.   Gilead Sciences, one of the more famous of the biotechs that ”discovers, develops, manufactures and commercializes therapies for viral diseases, infectious diseases and cancer” is located there.  It’s also home to Applied Biosystems and Visa’s world headquarters.

World-class windsurfing, a nine hole golf course, free lessons from Bay Area Dragons, an off-leash dog park, the library, and the Peninsula Jewish Community Center are just a few of the activities available to keep you busy.

The public schools of Foster City are highly desirable for their high scores.  Foster City School and Bowditch Middle School have been acknowledged as California Distinguished Schools, a very prestigous award only given to five percent of California’s schools per year.

Need a place to dine and relax?  Hook up to Foster City Yelp.  My current favorite is Chipolte’s burrito bowl.  Just thinking about it makes me hungry.

There are currently 25 homes for sale ranging in price from $868,000 to $2,275,000.  Condos and town houses for sale total 42 and range from $315,000 to $1,298,000.
