Saranap in Walnut Creek
Saranap is a beautiful unincorporated area of Walnut Creek, that is filled with it’s own unique charm that is unmatched. The area is bordered by Walnut Creek and Lafayette, so residents can fall under either the Walnut Creek or Lafayette School Districts depending on the address.
The area is also home to two private swimming clubs, Sun Valley and Dewing Park. It is so wonderful for families to have easy access to swimming areas. In another way to get the kids out of the house, the Acalanes Open Space is nearby for small hikes in some California sunshine. If fitness does happen to be your thing, you also have easy access to the Lafayette Moraga Regional Trail. Spend some time on foot or on two wheels to take in the beauty of this area.
Country streets take you through the neighborhood as if you stepped back in time. You can’t help but take notice of the rustic environment with many streets being without street lamps. There are many rancher homes on flat plots of land, leaving plenty of space for the kiddos to run around. It is incredible just how much of a country feel this neighborhood has, yet is so close to all the ammenities that matter most.
You are close to the downtown area of Walnut Creek, and also close to the major commute routes. Yet you still feel miles away, and back in time from the typical Bay Area hustle and bustle.
Another element to note of living in this unincorporated area between Lafayette and Walnut Creek, is you fall under the County Sheriff jurisdiction…rather than a city police department. It’s not uncommon as well for residents to have chickens, or roosters and such on their land. Chickens? Hello fresh eggs!
As you can imagine, Saranap real estate is in high demand. Home buyers keep an incredibly close watch for homes that come on the market. From charm, to the stellar schools, it’s no surprise that families with children are so keen to become residents. With outdoor activities, and a quiet charm to the Saranap neighborhood, it is quite an ideal place to live.
