"Nice Bland Castro Valley Neighborhood"

East Castro Valley is probably the newest Castro Valley neighborhood and the one that looks most like its eastern neighbors, Pleasanton, Livermore and Dublin. These are planned tract homes, all in similar styles: light adobe walls, red clay tiled roofs on clean wide streets sprawling far up into the Contra Costas.

These homes were built in the 1980’s and 1990’s for the most part. They are very nice though more than a little boring and homogenous. The median home price homes sell for here is $550K with the ceiling being around $750 K.

You get lots of great views, very effective schools and safe streets in East Castro.

Other than that though this is a pretty standard neighborhood. Nice but fairly unremarkable.
