Burton Valley Lifestyle

  .25 acre lot  •  4 Bedrooms  •  2.5 Bathrooms  •  Office • 2021 sq ft

Burton Valley is known for its flat, secluded neighborhood feel just ten minutes to shopping in either Lafayette or Moraga.

 

Burton Valley Elementary is 0.1 miles from 559 Silverado Drive. Immediate proximity to this top-rated elementary school makes it highly sought after for families with young children. 

Stanley Middle School, another top-rated school, is 2.3 miles from the house, most of which can be traveled on the Lafayette/Moraga Regional Trail making it an ideal bicycle ride.

 

Enjoy membership-based community pools in the area including Rancho Colorados and Las Trampas Pool.

 

Easy access to the Lafayette/Moraga Regional Trail and the Lafayette Community Park provide access to sports and exercise opportunities.

 

Less well-known, but incredibly remarkable is the immediate proximity to a network of trails accessible from the top of Rohrer Drive, past Rancho Colorados Swim Club. The Clyde Wood trail joins the Las Trampas Ridge trail, part of the Las Trampas Regional Park. The hiking, mountain biking and views from this extensive network of trails is generally lightly trafficked. Access to this network of trails and proximity to nature is an invaluable asset to life in Burton Valley. Note: Not all trails are open to the public. Check maps offered by East Bay Regional Park District and the Trails Club of Rossmoor for details.

 

Enjoy the extensive options for outdoor activities in the area including the Lafayette Reservoir and adjacent trail network, Briones Regional Park, Mount Diablo, Diablo Foothills, and Redwood Regional Park. And this is just the beginning!
