"Nice Apartments Close to Everything"

Montego Avenue in Walnut Creek is short, well-kept street just to the Southwest of John Muir Hospital where two of my children were born. It is, for that reason, perfectly located for nurses and other healthcare professionals who work at John Muir or in the satellite labs that are nearby.

This is basically an apartment row with only apartments on one side of the streets and offices (mostly hospital related) on the other. These however are some of the nicer, best placed apartments in Walnut Creek. The street is first of all really well kept with green lawns and well-trimmed hedges.

Despite these nice looks the apartments here are only moderately prices at around $1200 to $1400 for a 1 bedroom.

The apartments here nice in that 80’s sort of fashion. Enough space is allowed between rows of apartments that you do not feel quite so claustrophobic for the most part. Unlike other apartment areas, this location is very quiet and well-kept.

This is also close to both Downtown Walnut Creek with all of its attractions and entertainments and to the Walnut Creek BART. So this is perfect area for singles and young couples and divorced guys looking to start over.

This is not a bad place to live as a single parent either. The schools here are outstanding and Walnut Creek is a very safe location overall.
