"For the One Percent"

Most of the hills on the southern end of Blackhawk Road are undeveloped, so the homes that do exist in this area have backyards that open onto open hillsides. Of course, that in combination with the fact that this is Danville/Blackhawk make this some fairly prime real estate, commanding the sort of prices that you would expect from such real estate.

Many of these homes are definitely in million dollar price tag territory. These are large homes with pools and that pricey look to them that you would expect from an area like this. Although most of these homes are in the fairly typical Contemporary style that you would expect, there are also some homes here that are also some uniquely designed homes up here in classic styles which are a little more interesting than you your usual run of the mill house.

This is basically one of those out of the way spots where rich folks place their homes so that they can “get away from it all” when they get home.

There is also a big mansion up in this neighborhood—up, hidden away on top of a hill. I am not sure whose it is, but they clearly must be totally loaded.

This is a great spot without question—but way out of the league of most of us.
