Asked by Eastbay_buyer, Danville, CA • Mon Jan 12, 2009
I would appreciate an input from someone familiar with Lamorinda area and around with respect to quality of life issues.
We are not fans of suburbs in general,and would like to find an area with great schools but also shopping/entertainment options nearby. And proximity to BART to get to the city. It seems that such an area is Walnut Creek, but we really do not like it.
It seems that the desirable areas in East Bay provide great schools for children, but nothing for adults in terms of nightlife and shopping options (boutiques, not Target or the like).
Blackhawk currently has a lot of bargains with nice lots. Alamo remains overpriced, considering there is nothing out there -- just a village of a 16,000 people who are mostly concerned with having that prestigious address rather than living per se. Lafayette seems like a good alternative, but the houses that are at least somewhat affordable are not in Lafayette school district.
Is Marin better?
