"Nice Quiet Woodsy Neighborhood"

The Greenbriar neighborhood is one of the newer neighborhoods in Richmond, having those kinds of Contemporary style homes that became so popular in the late 1970’s—the kind that have incorporated other styles in, like the red-tiled roofs from Mediterranean style homes, but placed atop what look like Ranch homes. The area is very woodsy and bushy, and fairly removed from other locations.

The average home here costs between $300 and $400 K.

It has pretty nice views of the tree covered hills of the El Sobrante National Reserve.

One of the real bright spots of this neighborhood is Olinda Elementary, which ranks really well when it comes to test scores.
Crime is relatively low here, with only a handful of reports of break-ins and domestic battery reported in the last 6 months.

Overall, this is a relatively affordable middle class neighborhood.
