Tucked into a valley at the base of Mt. Diablo, Walnut Creek CA is a city that blends the best of all worlds. Surrounded by Open Spaces and trails for hiking and biking, Walnut Creek manages to maintain a relaxed, rural feel; while upscale shopping, fine restaurants, golf courses, and swim clubs give the city a cosmopolitan flair.
Good public schools, community oriented parks and sports facilities, a pleasant climate, and many housing options help to make Walnut Creek popular with active families. For mid-century modernists, Walnut Creek has the largest community of Eichlers in the East Bay. These sleek contemporary homes, built by Joseph Eichler in the 1950s, share the neighborhood of Rancho San Miguel with traditional ranch style homes built by Jordan & Reed. Rancho San Miguel has a definite mid-century vibe, similar to the Eichler neighborhoods in Marin’s Lucas Valley or the Diamond Heights area of San Francisco.
