"Just Like Most of Pleasanton: Bland and Boring"

Amberwoods/Wood Meadows is the little tiny neighborhood just to the east of the playing fields and to the south of the little waterway that bisects the northern part of Pleasanton. (This waterway has a nice bike trail on it where you can go for a ride and stay in shape—it’s very nice.) It’s funny that it should have two names; it is such a small neighborhood it barely deserves to have one name.

Not to mention the fact that it is hardly distinct from the neighborhoods around in it. Here you will find Contemporary style homes, galore, yet again. These are basically the staple of Pleasanton. I suppose the only thing that makes them a touch on the unique side is that one of the streets at least has some palm trees in front of some of the houses and some bushy, willowy trees that add a bit of individuality. (As in, “Yeah my house is the one two houses down from the house with the bushy, willows.”) Just something to provide a contrast to the bland uniformity which is Pleasanton.

Otherwise this is par for the course in terms of neighborhoods in Pleasanton: nice quiet streets, a little boring and fairly expensive. I am guessing house around here cost in the $750 K ish range.
