Pleasant Hill Real Estate
Pleasant Hill California is a small, suburban East Bay city located along Interstate-680 between Concord and Walnut Creek. Once a quiet farming area, Pleasant Hill has become a popular commuter city due to its relative affordability and proximity to other Bay Area locations. Access to I-680 is easy and the Pleasant Hill BART station connects Pleasant Hill to the rest of the East Bay and San Francisco.
Real estate in Pleasant Hill is not as costly as it is in neighboring Lafayette or Walnut Creek, but Pleasant Hill’s location is every bit as favorable. A mild Mediterranean climate promises warm, sunny summer days and mild winters. Nearby parks and open spaces offer recreational fun, and a network of trails give joggers, hikers, skaters, and bikers miles of scenic paths.
Downtown Pleasant Hill is a hub of activity. Redevelopment of the area was completed in 2000 and provides a small city “Main Street” environment with a nice mix of shops, restaurants, and large retailers. In the summertime, residents enjoy a busy Farmers Market and the free outdoor Summer Concert Series. Another popular event is the annual Pleasant Hill Art, Jazz, & Wine Fest.
