"Nice But Busy Street"

Oak Grove Road in this section of Concord is a well-trafficked north-south artery that stretches from Ygnacio Valley Road to Ygnacio Valley Park. Most of the eastern half of Oak Grove is made up of single-family homes and apartments. Although Oak Grove Road is a busy lane, the houses and especially the apartments are very nice.

The homes are for the most part late 50’s era Ranch Style homes. The median price for one of these homes during the last year or so is about $500K, with sell prices running from $350K to $650K.

As to the apartments and condos along Oak Grove, they sell for between $125K and $300K and rent for between $1600 to $1800 per month for a two bedroom. I actually came here to take a look at a 3-bedroom listed for $1600, about as low as you get in a good neighborhood like this.

The schools here and especially to the south of here in Walnut Creek, are actually pretty strong. Bancroft Elementary and Valle Verde Elementary (which both serve the southern end of Oak Grove Road) both have APIs of 9. But things are more divergent when you compare them to southern end of Oak Grove as compared to the northern end. Northgate High in Walnut Creek, for example, has an API of 10 while Ygnacio Valley High, which is just off Oak Grove near the intersection of Treat Blvd., has a solid but unimpressive API of 5. The middle schools serving the southern and northern ends of Oak Grove are even more divergent, with Foothill Middle School have a perfect API of 10, while Oak Grove Middle Schools scratches bottom with a 2 API.

The other nice thing about this section of Oak Grove is that you are far enough away from the more commercial sections of Concord and Walnut Creek that you get a certain level of peace (except for the fairly constant traffic along Oak Grove of course)--but you are not so far away that you add significantly to your job, wherever that may be.

I actually really like this area and would one day like to live here perhaps.
