Our Neighbourhood

Our home is located in a small town about 25 miles east of San Francisco.  It directly faces the woody and hilly Las Trampas open space.  It is on a private lane with seven homes on almost an acre lot. Within minutes there are walking, hiking and biking trails.  A walking/bike trail heads north to Walnut Creek, the hub of our area, with extensive shopping and gourmet restaurants.  About a mile to the south lies the quaint town of Danville with numerous cafes, restaurants, and boutique shops.   Bart (Bay Area Rapid Transit) takes you to San Francisco in 30 minutes from Walnut Creek.
Within 45 minutes you can be in the Napa Valley Wine Country.  And in an hour and a half you can be on the  Monterrey peninsula where Carmel-by-the-Sea and Pebble Beach are located.  Lake Tahoe is about 3 and a half hours and Yosemite National Park about 4 hours.  Just north of San Francisco lie the quaint seaside towns of Sausalito and Tiburon.  Continuing further north you can reach Muir Woods and walk among towering redwoods. You can reach numerous ocean beaches from our home in less than an hour.

About Our Family

 Ally and Don, who are owners of the home, are pictured sitting at a table. Don was a systems analyst for a large oil company and Ally was a marketing manager for an electronics firm. 
We are nonsmokers and would appreciate the same.   On our trips we enjoy museums, gardens, stately homes, architectural ruins, and accidental discoveries.

Lifestyle

We enjoy taking walks, hiking in the hills or mountains and dining out on our exchanges.
