The other area of Belmont Heights that is worth a look is the Bluff Heights area. Similar to the Bluff Heights neighborhood these homes relocated near the beach from Broadway and 3rd street. The beach is approximately a 4 to 7 block radius depending on where you live with beautiful older Bungalow style homes.

It's important to note when looking for a historic property to find out if it's covered under the "Mills Act." If the property has already been approved then you save a large amount on your annual taxes. This can be a considerable savings as taxes are normally more than 1% of the purchase price in California.
