About the owner: We grew up in Castro Valley and this is Bill's boyhood home. We've totally remodeled it and love the seclusion in the midst of things, the beautiful,quiet neighborhood complete with resident urban deer and the ability to quickly walk to large parks and recreation areas.
Why the Owner Chose Castro Valley: Our family history is here - family gatherings, local schools, the UC Berkeley campus (many of our family, including us, are alumni!). We love how unique the Bay Area is today - amazing sights, incomparable cuisine from around the world,great people and weather too. Castro Valley's central location makes getting away to the Wine Country, Yosemite or the Gold Country easy as well!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Probably the best hing about our house is the feeling of country seclusion and charm so close to the city. No matter the season or time of day, the garden is quiet and peaceful, ever-changing with the seasons, and can be seen from every room of the house.
