Our residential development is quiet, safe and convenient with free use of amenities such as a 60-foot pool and tennis courts. The neighbors are very friendly and there are lots of kids around. We are surrounded by wooded hills and open country, and have great walking and mountain-biking country around us on Mount Diablo, Las Trampas, and many other areas. There is a good road network - out of rush hour, San Francisco is about 45 minutes' drive away (alternatively there is a metro from nearby Walnut Creek). We also have excellent shopping and MANY restaurants in several locations within 5 -30 minutes' drive.
We are an English family that moved to the USA in 1999. I am an executive with IBM; my wife is a locum teacher. We have three kids - a daughter of 19 and two boys aged 13 and 11. We also have a dog and two cats - if you use our house, we can either have these boarded or you can look after them if you would like. Things we like to do - walking, bike-riding, swimming, skiing, camping, kids' sports, socializing with friends.
