Lone Tree Estates


Lone Tree Estates is one of the few developed family communities in Antioch that has all the amenities of master-planned neighborhoods. This includes a community pool, tennis courts, basketball court, playground, hiking trails and a wonderful Club House. The homes in the neighborhood were built in the late 1990’s and are designed with bigger and manicured lawns and mature trees to keep the streets cooler in the summer.

There are plenty of parks in the area including Eaglesridge and Prewitt Family Park. Prewitt in particular, with 99 acres of walking and hiking trails, a summer swim area and tons of play and picnic areas.

Black Diamond Canyon


Not shockingly, one of the major pluses to living in Black Diamond Canyon is the direct access to Black Diamond Regional Preserve. Living in this neighborhood means you live on the edge of one of the real gems in the park world in the area with 6,000 acres of stunning hiking/biking/camping and strolling at your doorstep. The neighborhood also has wonderful subdivisions like The Estates at Black Diamond, which has great big family-friendly homes with 4, 5, 6 and even 7 bedroom homes, which can come in handy for big families and those with two work-from-homers who need private space. Prices in the neighborhood are typically just below a million, which in the Bay Area, for homes this big and luxurious is a bargain.

Lake Alhambra


Living in the Lake Alhambra neighborhood means you win the water lifestyle lottery twice. You’re near the Delta and you get to live in this charming lakeside neighborhood, with its peaceful, scenic vibe. The neighborhood surrounds the Lake so many of the homes are on the water and the rest have easy access to the wonderful boating, fishing, and walking trails that circle the lake. Homes here tend to be smaller (and less expensive) averaging in the high $500 to mid $600k range. Much of the neighborhood is filled with singles, couples and families that want that outdoor, water-centric lifestyle that comes from being on a lake that is less than a mile from the Antioch Dunes National Wildlife Refuge that sits on the shore of the Delta.
