"Flying High Over the Pleasanton Riff Raff"

Like Foxbrough, Eagle Ridge Estates is another nest of mini-mansions perched atop another slight elevation to get a bit of view of the surrounding valley. I went to a pool party at one of these giant homes and got a sense of how the “upper half” lives. These are really spacious homes, many with around 5000 ft. of floor space.

And they have private pools, tennis courts and in some cases their own mini-vineyards.

The lawns are perfectly manicured and the streets are wide. It is at the edge of the valley so no one drives through your neighborhood on their way somewhere else.

The down side, I guess is that you are sort of away from it all. So every time you want to get some groceries or get anything at all done, you have to get into your car and drive to it. You probably get a bit of wildlife up here as well since you are right on the edge of town. I bet they probably get their garbage cans knocked over when they put it out the night before.

Which is terrible, because then their maids or butlers probably have to go out to the curb to clean it up for them. I kid. But I am just saying that this is a really rich area: million plus dollar homes and all that.

When I win the lottery I will be sure not to spend it all here getting one of these homes.
Pros
