We’re huge fans of Overlook (sometimes referred to as “The Hill”), but as current residents of this neighborhood, we’re definitely biased. Conveniently located near highways 680 and 24, Walnut Creek BART, and downtown Walnut Creek, the location is second to none.
Home styles range from ranch style to Mediterranean to traditional. Hidden driveways and unbeatable views of Mount Diablo are characteristic of a typical Overlook dwelling. Large lots, sizable yards, and distant neighbors suit those with the highest standards of privacy. Some residents enjoy direct access to Acalanes Ridge, an open space and natural divide between Walnut Creek and Lafayette with 360 views of Mount Diablo to the east and the Carquinez Strait to the north.
Homes in Overlook are zoned for top-rated Walnut Creek schools including Buena Vista Elementary (8/10), Walnut Creek Intermediate (8/10), and Las Lomas High School (9/10).
