New Developments on the Rise Along Norris Canyon in San Ramon

New Developments on the rise in Norris Canyon EstatesWhen American settlers first laid claim to San Ramon in 1850, the first purchase of land was granted to Leo and Mary Jane Norris.  The Norris name still remains strong in San Ramon, as the city officially gave recognition to its founding family by naming Norris Canyon Road after them.  Today, the Norris family is once again being honored by having San Ramon Valley’s newest luxury estates named after them, the Norris Canyon Estates.

Centrally located between Castro Valley, Pleasanton, Walnut Creek, and Dublin, the new Norris Canyon Estates are single family luxury homes situated behind staffed gates and offer views from the foothills of the San Ramon Valley.

These estate-sized homes are built by the Toll Brothers and range in size from 3900-6500 square feet.  Homes are situated on 1/3 to over an acre of land and offer the privacy of heavily wooded conservation areas.

Toll Brothers offers five plans that range in price from $1,583,995 to $1,984,995 and several amenities that prospective buyers find very appealing: numerous bedrooms, bathrooms, and garages, high ceilings and doorways, large foyers, an optional walk-out basement, gourmet kitchens, luxurious master suites and baths, tennis and basketball courts, a community center, walking trails, and a playground.

While Norris Canyon Estates are a luxury priced home, they are not the only new development of homes in the vicinity.  At the east end of Norris Canyon Road, a new community of Kaufman Broad homes is being built.  These single story homes are priced from $499,000-$542,000 and range in size from 940 square feet to just over 1000 square feet. Offering 2-3 bedrooms, 2 baths and 2 car garages, these homes are conveniently located near the Iron Horse trail, Bishop Ranch, schools, the San Ramon Community Center, Central Park, shopping, restaurants, and the freeway.  Owners of these new homes can walk to popular attractions such as the Farmer’s Market, the live music at Central Park, and the holiday displays in the surrounding neighborhoods.

Thanks to its founding families, the San Ramon Valley has continued to thrive and grow.  From the first purchase of land by the Norris family to a population of more than 73,000 people, San Ramon has proven to be a very popular place for families to live. San Ramon ranks in the top 3% of the schools in the nation and top 2% in California.  With excellent school districts, access to commuting, a record of safety, quaint restaurants and dining, and new homes on the rise, more people are choosing San Ramon as their home.
