"Nice Quiet Suburban Street"

Douglas Lane in Pleasant HIll is one of those large sidewalk-less suburban streets largely populated by large Ranch style homes dating from the 1950’s and 60’s. These are the kind of big Ranch homes with expansive front yards and a long, flat arrangement.

This is a nice section of Pleasant Hill located right by the library and close to both the best shopping areas of Concord and Walnut Creek. It is also very close to BART (Bay Area Rapid Transfer) which makes it a pretty good place for commuters.

The area is relatively safe with most of the crime occurring along Contra Costa Blvd. There have been about a half dozen assaults in the residential area, but they were all reports of domestic violence rather than the kind of battery that you get in the city. (2 such incidents, btw, were right on Douglas Lane.)

Most of the burglaries in the area were close to the commercial areas along Contra Costa Blvd.

Schools here are also quite strong, making this a pretty good place to live overall. Homes in the immediate vicinity run less than $500K and there are relatively affordable apartments for rent.
