"Not So Cool But Okay"

Located on the far eastern end of Concord, the Landana neighborhood is another one of those classic 70’s style Ranch home neighborhoods. It is actually pretty nice for what it is: wide streets and well-kept Ranch homes with more of an Arizona feeling than a San Fernando Valley feeling, if that makes any sense. Basically what I mean is that you have a lot sky in this neighborhood; it is not one of those neighborhoods where you get so much tree cover that you feel enclosed in a tree tunnel.

The median price for a home here is around $300 K—about average for Concord, but low for Contra Costa County and the East Bay in general. Prices range from $80 K to $600 K, though less than 10% break the $500K barrier and fewer than 10% drop below $125 K.

On the southern edge of the neighborhood is Dave Brubeck Park, named after the renowned West Coast Cool Jazz musician famous for Take Five, who was actually born in Concord.

As to schools, they are a little bit of a mixed bag. Monte Gardens Elementary shows outstanding test scores, but El Dorado Middle School is really quite bad. Concord High School is solid (actually better than Diablo High School, people are sometimes surprised to find out) but not spectacularly so.

Overall it is not too bad a spot, with the usual conveniences of the suburbs: supermarkets, a fitness center and a Starbucks.
The whole shebang.
