A whimsical and playful 4BD/1.5BA Mid-Century Modern, 20089 Emerald Court is an unexpected gem on a quiet cul-de-sac in Castro Valley. Reveling in Bohemian chic with its playful interior design, this home boasts an open floor plan with updated kitchen and bath, hardwood floors, and oversized dual-pane windows that fill the rooms with light. This level-in, level-out home includes a huge backyard with two decks--ideal for outdoor entertaining--and a separate cottage-like music studio.

Nestled in a confluence of canyons, Castro Valley is a refreshing pocket of quiet neighborhoods with a small-town vibe, yet boasts sought-after schools and is well-situated for the daily commute with easy access to BART and the 238 and 580 freeways. The area offers many outdoor activities, including the annual Rowell Ranch rodeo, parade, chili cook-off, and pancake breakfast. Emerald Court is moments away from Don Castro Park, swimming at Coal Canyon Reservoir, and horseback and hiking trails at Lake Chabot.

Nestled in a quiet valley surrounded by oak-studded rolling hills, Castro Valley enjoys a rural atmosphere in the midst of urban Alameda County. With the San Leandro Hills extending along its northeastern edge, Castro Valley boasts such natural amenities as an extensively developed park system, a swimming lagoon, and an 18-hole golf course. Lake Chabot Regional Park offers boating, hiking, and an annual spring fishing derby. This vibrant community of a little more than 60,000 residents hosts an annual fall festival and car show, a chili cook-off, and a rodeo parade. Seasonal farmers' markets sell fresh produce from the nearby Central Valley. Youth activities include softball, baseball, soccer, and basketball leagues, as well as a track club. Historic Rowell Ranch Rodeo holds rodeo events and chooses a Rodeo Queen each year. Castro Valley’s Adobe Art Gallery displays group art exhibits, student exhibits, and children's and senior art. Castro Valley homes range from 10-acre properties with plenty of room for horses to custom-built homes with views of the surrounding hills and three-bedroom, single-family homes close to schools and shopping.
