"Apartments and Condos All the Way Up"

Ascot Drive in Moraga is basically all apartments from Moraga Way, way up into the hills. There are variations in the styles of apartments. So down at the bottom you get those sorts of boxier apartments, the ones where even the balconies barely stick out, from the squares.

I took a look at some of the apartments here the other day; they are basically the kind of apartments you think of when you think of 1970’s style apartments. A little dark and somewhat dingy looking, but very serviceable. Unfortunately the price wasn’t right. They wanted $1100 for a studio and $1500 for a one bedroom. That was just not going to work out for me. I can see someone paying that because of the safety and convenience of being in Moraga, but it is just not quite within my means.

Farther up Ascot as you get to the upper reaches of the street the apartments get nicer as well. They become more individualized get better views and have cooler entrances. Usually along walkways. These are still pretty small but they are still pretty nice.

This is a pretty quiet residential area with a grammar school nearby and within walking distance of Downtown Moraga and the local park. There are probably a fair number of St. Mary’s students here as well given its proximity to that college. It think this is probably one of the closest off-campus areas where they could find housing.

It seems like a pretty good spot to have an apartment.
Pros
  • Nice Apartments at the Top
  • Close to Downtown

Cons
  • Somewhat Expensive

  • So So Public Transportation
