With a population under 20,000, Alamo takes great pride in carefully maintaining its small town rural charm, such as two-lane roads, trees, parks, and support of local businesses.
Large lot sizes echo Alamo’s rural heritage, many with views of Mt. Diablo and the valley. Many lots are at least half an acre, with custom built homes. Alamo is one of the East Bay’s most exclusive and upscale areas, coupled with one of its most expensive zip codes. Some of Alamo’s notable communities include White Gate, Round Hill Country Club, Alamo Springs, Stonegate and what is known as the “Westside.” Each of them are distinct and beautiful and offer a range from ranch homes to mansions, with price points to match.
Many Alamo residents belong to the Round Hill Country Club. A private club, Round Hill was founded in 1959 as a combination golf and luxury housing community. It offers a championship, par-72 course that has hosted numerous business, club and golf tournaments, including the LPGA. Round Hill’s Clubhouse and catering facilities are exceptional and offer a wide variety of dining choices, from an intimate dinner for two, to banquets serving hundreds of guests. In addition, Round Hill has state of the art tennis facilities, with top professionals recognizing them as some of the most complete in Northern California, and a widely known Aquatics facility and locally renowned swim team. Its bocce league is also very popular, and teams often play against others from Diablo and Blackhawk country clubs.
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, a low crime rate, highly educated residents and high rates of homeownership in mainly single-family homes make Alamo a great choice for raising a family.
The town has one main commercial shopping district, many parks and hiking trails and 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.
