"Great Upscale Hillside Neighborhood"

Las Trampas Hills is the place to come for gated mcmansions and nice valley views way out to Mt. Diablo. This is the kind of place where homes have turnabouts around fountains in the front, pools in the back and a tennis court or two just for good measure. The kind of properties where small armies of gardeners and maids ascend every day to help maintain the beautiful properties while the tennis moms go out to get their lessons.

Am I painting too luxurious a view of this location? If so, not by much.

This is without a doubt million dollar home territory. In fact, it is more like multi-million dollar home territory. It is the kind of place where senators come to raise money, as Feinstein did this weekend (netted $3 million).

A lot of the homes here are perched on little winding roads that don’t look like they are going anywhere and in many cases you feel as if you are out in the middle of the country. The Las Trampas Hills neighborhood is bordered by the Las Trampas Wilderness Park on the west and south.

I like this neighborhood though it is one of those places that I will never be able to afford to live.
  • Big McMansions
