"Nice Suburban Neighborhood, Relatively Affordable"

This Concord neighborhood is best known for being the home of Ygnacio Valley High and Carondelet High, a private all girls school. Ygnacio Valley High is gets an average rating in terms of API, but Carondelet is widely considered to be a very strong school that teaches from a Catholic perspective.

The Oak Gravel Treat neighborhood--I have never heard of it referred this way, btw--is a mostly suburban neighborhood, one of the better ones in Concord. (It, in fact, feels a bit more like a Walnut Creek neighborhood than a Concord neighborhood.)

You can roughly divide this neighborhood into two parts when it comes to the homes you will find here. North of Treat Blvd., the median home price is around $375K with prices running between $250K to $450K. (No home north of Treat breaks the $500K mark.)

Meanwhile south of Treat, the lowest priced home sale in the last year was for $375K. Prices on this south side, however rise to as much as $665K. The median is around $500K. Homes seem to date from roughly the same period, though they may be slightly better kept on the southern end than on the northern end.

Overall this is a nice suburban neighborhood with solid schools, low crime and relatively affordable home prices. You are not too far away from Downtown Walnut Creek and the commute is not too bad in the area. (Unless you are going into the city, in which case you might want to consider taking BART.)

I would certainly not mind living here if I could afford it.
