Piedmont Heights is being a bit usurped by SkyHawk which is about a mile away down Hwy 12. The community is showing it's age with the designs, construction techniques but the lots can be much bigger. The younger families are in SkyHawk with the new school there and its family friendly park and walking paths. Rincon Valley school is just down from Piedmont Heights and is always in demand for families and the new High School is right at the corner of Calistoga and Montecito Blvd. The NE area is an area not flooded with the REO/Short-Sale/Foreclosure failures we've been seeing as of late. Values, though they've come down, are not on the order of some of the other areas of Santa Rosa. All in all, solid, older, transitional but not the flag ship of upscale living it once was!!
