Clayton Real Estate Market
Real estate in Clayton, CA is a collection of beautiful homes in traditional suburban neighborhoods as well as some country horse-properties and ranches on the outskirts of town. Architecture is varied and includes Spanish haciendas, traditional ranch-style, Mediterranean, and contemporary homes at price points ranging from moderate to expensive.
Clayton’s historic downtown certainly helps make homes for sale here an intriguing option for any home buyer, especially if you find something that’s walking distance to all the quaint and charming little shops, cafes, and restaurants that line the city streets. On the outskirts of town is where you’ll likely find a number of farms, ranches, and equestrian-friendly properties, each offering lots of open space, plenty of privacy, and in many instances a pretty hefty price tag as well. The Clayton real estate market is also unique in that you’ll see a fairly wide-rage of housing styles, from Spanish haciendas and Mediterranean-style homes to traditional one and two-story houses that provide ample living space for anyone in the market for a new place to live. Plenty of four an five bedroom options should be available for under $1 million, and even Clayton’s most expensive homes offer a great value and rarely exceed $2 million.
Clayton Community Amenities
Clayton California is a small East Bay city in central Contra Costa County. No major roadways pass through Clayton, which helps maintain the rural ambience of the community; yet the amenities of larger East Bay cities are nearby, making Clayton a favorite with telecommuters who work from home and periodically travel to their San Francisco offices. Concord and Walnut Creek are both less than ten miles away; each with a BART station for commuters and a full range of shopping and business services.
The historic downtown center of Clayton has retained its old time character with charming shops and restaurants, while nearby Clayton Station Shopping Center provides Clayton residents with the modern necessities of life, including a supermarket and drugstore. Hundreds of acres of open spaces in the surrounding hillsides and Clayton’s proximity to the Delta assures residents of ample opportunity to hike and bike, ride horses, or water-ski and fish without the need to travel more than ten or fifteen miles from home.
Named on Money Magazine’s list of best small towns in America, Clayton is a wonderful community. The schools are good, the surrounding countryside is beautiful, and the lifestyle is comfortable.
