"Where Beaver Cleaver Would Live, If He Lived in Concord"

Last week I wrote a review saying that Inner Lime Ridge was Concord’s best neighborhood. That is true enough, but I would say this neighborhood is tied right up there with it in its own way. As always when it comes to neighborhoods it is about location, and Middle Lime Ridge definitely is well situated being located as it is around the Lime Ridge Open Space, has definitely situated itself perfectly.
This is just far enough east that you are no longer in the more populated areas of Concord.
Middle Lime Ridge is one of those newer neighborhoods with nice wide streets and a super clean, classic suburban look to it.
Basically this is where Leave to Beaver would be set if it were filmed today instead of during the Eisenhower Era.

You can actually divide this neighborhood up into three different sections. There is western section along Treat Blvd. that
faces west and whose inclined streets give you views of the valley.

There are two eastern sections to Middle Lime Ridge, the northern residential section by Treat Blvd. and the southern section by Ygnacio Valley Road. The northern section by Treat has a little bit more a of “rural” feel in that it doesn’t have side walks and the front lawn stretch right out to road. It gives a particular feel.

The southern section by Ygnacio Valley gives you eastern views and is loaded with those larger 80’s style Ranch homes that were bigger and denoted then and still denote now, a certain amount of affluence.

So what does it cost to live here?

The median home price overall is $450 K. But it makes a big difference whether you are on the western end versus the eastern end. In the eastern sections, the median home price is closer to $500 K.

Partly this is because you farther away from the rest of Concord and it problems and partly this is because the homes here are simply newer (most dating from after the Reagan Era).

The schools here are also stronger than in the rest of Concord.

Overall this is definitely one of the best neighborhoods for families to live.
Pros
  • Nice Homes
  • Nice Views
  • Good Elementary Schools
Cons
  • Too Many Foreclosures
  • Not Very Goo Night Life
  • High School Not Very Good
