                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1976

                  About the owner: We're a couple who have raised our family and are now into traveling the world. We always love to come back to our beautiful home in the foothills of Mt. Diablo just a half our from one of the world's great cities...'the city by the bay', San Francisco

                  Why the Owner Chose Walnut Creek:
                  Walnut Creek has some of the best weather, restaurants and shopping in the Bay Area. It is so scenic with such easy access to the City yet so unique.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                  We are only 1/4th mile from the Shell Ridge open space in the foothills of Mt Diablo...great for hiking, great views and getting away from it all. Our neighborhood is quite, without traffic, full of trees, shrubs and flowers yet an easy mile walk to downtown restaurants and shopping or the BART station.
