"Like a Stroll in the Library"

Canterbury Village is another one of those Concord neighborhoods with older Ranch style homes. They are not spectacular, but you are far enough away from the overly crowded sections of Concord that this section’s quiet is sort of appealing.

Also, if you happen to have been an English major in college like me, you have to like the names not only of the neighborhood, Canterbury, but also themed streets on the eastern end: Huckleberry, Shakespeare, Chaucer, Lancelot, Pickwick, Joan, and Sherwood. Though, of course, I would have preferred a little bit more consistency in the names: say Knight’s Lane, Wife of Bath Ct., Summoner’s Ave. rather than jumping all over the place in English from Chaucer to Dickens. (Also clear up the confusion as to which Joan the are referring to: Shaw’s or French one that pops in Shakespeare’s Henry VI). But, alas, you can’t have everything.

What does it cost to live in this highly allusive neighborhood?

Well, you can rent a 2 bedroom up by Treat for around $1300.

If you prefer to own, the median price here is $275K with prices ranging from as low as $150 K to as only as high as $500K.

Of course, the problem when you are in Concord is the low quality of the public education system here. The schools are just not on a par with other parts of the Bay Area, so if you are going to live here, you will definitely need to consider sending your kids to private school.

Overall an okay neighborhood, maybe slightly better than average for Concord.
