"Affordable But Not Family Friendly"

Campbell Lane just off San Pablo Dam Road in El Sobrante is basically one of those spots where it is all apartments. Most people use San Pablo Dam Road as a shortcut to and from the Lamorinda area, but this is also a nice little spot to live as well. The rents at the apartments around here are fairly low--about a $1000.

There is some crime in the area from what I understand--the occasional assault--but nowhere near what you find to the wes of here. You are also pretty close to the Hilltop Mall and are not in too bad a position for starting a commute.

Of course, you also have to contend with the traffic on San Pablo Dam Road, which is fairly constant and filled with speedsters.

It’s also pretty cheap to buy a house around here, with nearby houses selling for between $150 to $250 thousand.

Schools are pretty bad around here though--De Anza High having a pretty reputation in terms of test scores. So families would probably not want to live here.
  • Affordable Apartments
