Living in Grass Valley in Oakland


I live in the Grass Valley neighborhood and there are definitely areas in this neighborhood that have exactly this feel. Our home bumps up against Chabot Park behind us and so there are horses nearby and wildlife behind us. And our neighbors are not at all near us, so we have immense privacy. Sounds like we're pretty close to the school that you've chosen as well. The one downside to living here for other families with young children is that Grass Valley elementary is now closing so we won't have a neighborhood school. (You can thank the school board for that, smh). 

Other than that, we feel like we have the best of both worlds (urban nearby, rural feel) where we live.

Check out the Grass Valley neighborhood in Oakland. It’s diverse, quiet and can fit in your 850k budget. We bought here a year ago and couldn’t be happier. We anticipated going with private school when our child reached school age and now we are hearing such great things about our local elementary school that were considering it when our son starts K in another year. I’m happy to answer questions you have about the neighborhood.
