"Remote and Wealthy"

This farthest northeast micro neighborhood of Orinda is perhaps also one of the least dense areas in the city as well. You can tell just by driving down the long leafy ways that make up this area. Along the yellowish hills one finds long driveways disappearing back to partly obscured mansions. As you can tell by looking at the residences on these streets, there had already been some homes erected in the Fifties, but farther back along the hills you find the newer constructs, built mostly during the Seventies.

This is really the province of the immensely rich. Even in the older portion of Orinda View where the large Fifties homes remain and the homes are more tightly bunched, you still find yards that are perfectly manicured and homes that look brand new.

There isn’t much else to this portion of Orinda—its just the homes and the hills. Perfect for those wealthy Orinda residents that want not to be bothered.
