Sunol Real Estate Market

Homes in Sunol California are an eclectic mix of cabins, bungalows, cottages, and rural estates. Kilkare Woods, the original housing tract in Sunol, began as a private association of 105 summer cottages built in the early 1900s. The area has been built up over time with a variety of homes in different styles and sizes, from relatively inexpensive fixer-uppers to multi-million dollar estates.

With recent population stats having under 1,000 people calling Sunol home, it’s no wonder that housing options and opportunities are limited. But thanks to its easy access to both Interstate 680 and State Route 84, which connect home owners to Fremont to the south and west and Pleasanton and Livermore to the northeast, it’s still considered a convenient place to live. In addition, San Jose only lies 17 miles from town, while San Francisco is only 32 miles away, allowing for most homes for sale in Sunol to never be too far from plenty of big city amenities and attractions.

Sunol Community Amenities

Tucked away in the south central hills of Alameda County is the East Bay community of Sunol California. Although it is only minutes away from Pleasanton, Sunol is small, rural, and sparsely populated. Linked to the rest of the Bay Area by I-680 and Highway 84, Sunol is close to all the conveniences of a large metropolitan area, yet feels a world away.

Even despite Sunol only encompassing about 27.8 square miles, part of the beauty about living in Northern California is that locals are never too far from plenty of parks, preserves, and other outdoor recreational amenities. Part of Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park lies within Sunol’s borders, while the Calliope Preserve Golf Course and the Ruby Hill Country Club sit just outside of town near its northern edge. To the south does Mission Park Regional Preserve and Sunol Regional Wilderness, which both provide plenty of hiking trails and pathways, swimming, camping, and more!

The historic Niles Canyon Railway is a popular tourist attraction and offers train rides year round between the depot in Sunol and Niles Station in Fremont. Another of Sunol’s claims to fame is the Sunol Water Temple. Designed by Willis Polk, a well-respected architect who is best known for his work in San Francisco, the Water Temple is a treasured Sunol landmark.

Sunol School Information

Sunol Glen School is a Kindergarten – 8, open enrollment, elementary school that serves children living in Sunol as well as children from Pleasanton, Fremont, and other nearby communities. High schoolers attend school in Pleasanton.
