"Nice Suburban Living, But Maybe Not so Great for Commuters"

Town and Country is on the far western end of Danville—which of course in Contra Costa means it’s a hilly expensive area with some relatively new looking houses. I don’t know if you would call these Ranch homes, exactly—they just seem longer and squatter than most Ranch homes that I have seen. There are also a lot of Contemporary style homes up here. This is the kind of place with wide streets and sidewalks where the hills are mostly soft enough and the streets quiet enough where you see people on early evening walks. People have big lawns here and nice brickwork.

Or, to put this another way—this is definitely million dollar home territory. With the central part of Danville just to the northeast, this is definitely a great little spot. If I were making bank, I might consider living here.

One drawback to this area is traffic. If you have to commute to San Jose or San Francisco, this is actually a pretty lousy starting and ending point. Neither one is within an hour’s commute time during rush hour—even worse if you intend on taking BART (you will only get as far as Orinda in an hour, probably).

Other than that it is pretty much a great, slightly boring suburban area, with strong schools, no crime, okay nearby restaurants and good shopping. Kind of boring, but really nice if you are into suburban living.
Pros
  • Nice Houses
  • Great Schools
  • Close to "Downtown" Danville Attractions
Cons
  • Bad Commute Traffic
  • Kind of Boring
  • High Cose of Living
