East Bay Real Estate | East Bay Towns
San Francisco’s East Bay Area is an extraordinary blend of scenic beauty, urban sophistication, and rural country charm. With top-notch public schools, an excellent public transportation system, thousands of acres of open spaces and regional parks, and an architecturally diverse real estate market, this region on the sunny side of the Bay offers a first-rate environment for work and play.
Some of the most desirable real estate in the Bay Area can be found in the East Bay (in both Alameda County & Contra Costa County), where there is something for every sensibility, making it an ideal choice for urban, suburban, or rural living. On the eastern edge of the Bay, in the Oakland and Berkeley Hills, homes often come with panoramic views and expensive price tags. In the flats of the inner East Bay, affordable live/work lofts and condos in Oakland and Emeryville are fast becoming the place to be for young professionals. Farther to the east, Orinda and Lafayette offer a quiet haven to commuters wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city.
Mid-century modern enthusiasts will appreciate the wealth of homes to be found throughout the East Bay. Of particular interest are the homes built by Joseph Eichler during the 1950s and ‘60s. East Bay Eichler neighborhoods, offering a bit of mid-century suburban ambience, can be found in Oakland, Castro Valley, Walnut Creek, and Concord.
Whether situated along the shores of the San Francisco Bay, in the hills of the coastal mountains, or in the valleys sitting at the base of Mt. Diablo, real estate in the East Bay offers a quality of life second to none. Proximity to other Bay Area locations including San Francisco, Marin the Peninsula, and the Silicon Valley make the East Bay attractive to commuters. Housing options ranging from rural country estates in Clayton and Moraga to comfortable Craftsman bungalows in Rockridge and Piedmont make buying a home in the East Bay an attractive alternative for many house hunters. Come take a look – you just might want to stay a while!
