The small town of Alamo was named after its many poplar trees, first observed by Spanish settlers. With a population under 20,000, Alamo takes great pride in carefully maintaining its small town rural charm, such as two-lane roads, trees, and support of local businesses.
Large lot sizes echo Alamo’s rural heritage, many with views of Mt. Diablo and the valley. By requiring Alamo house lots to be at least half an acre, Alamo protects against subdivision development and shrinking lot sizes. Every home in Alamo has been custom built, giving buyers a wide variety of styles to choose from.
Alamo is served by the highly regarded San Ramon Valley Unified School District, which boasts more California Distinguished Schools of Excellence than any other district in Northern California. Great schools, low crime, highly educated residents and high rates of homeownership in mainly single-family homes make an Alamo home a great choice for raising a family.
The town has only one main commercial shopping district, but offers close proximity to downtown Danville and Walnut Creek for shopping, fine dining, and nightlife. For even more options, San Francisco is only a 35-minute drive away.
