Homes in Walnut Creek, California come in a variety of styles and prices. Established Walnut Creek neighborhoods, including Joaquin Ranch, Estates of Walnut Creek, and Lakewood are beautifully landscaped and quiet. Newer subdivisions in the Northgate area, including Rancho Paraiso, feature large, high-quality homes, many on large lots with expansive views. For the house-hunter looking for a condominium or townhouse, Beacon Ridge and California Gardens offer interesting possibilities. Additionally, Walnut Creek also has its fair share of Joseph Eichler homes that were built in the 1950's, which tend to be some of the more highly sought-after properties in the entire Bay Area. These sleek contemporary homes share the neighborhood of Rancho San Miguel with traditional ranch-style homes built by Jordan & Reed. Rancho San Miguel has a definite mid-century vibe, similar to the Eichler neighborhoods in Marin's Lucas Valley or the Diamond Heights area of San Francisco.
