I was talking to Empire Realty Broker Associate Julie Dudum the other day about Downtown Walnut Creek. Julie is an experienced real estate professional who lives in Downtown Walnut Creek and has a great sense of the community and why it is such a great place to call home!
Q: Julie, tell me about Downtown Walnut Creek and the homes in that area. Why are they different?
A: Each home in Downtown Walnut Creek is different and cuter than the next - they are truly the gems of Walnut Creek. Most homes downtown were built in the 1920s or 1930s and exude so much charm and character. Each home evokes a feeling! There is a tremendous amount of pride among homeowners in downtown. Many are original owners! Typically when a new family moves into the neighborhood, they are greeted with warmth and a very welcoming feeling, characteristic of yesteryear. My clients love the convenience of being so close to downtown as well.
Q: For children, what school districts are kids a part of downtown?
A: For elementary and middle school they are in the Walnut Creek School District and for high school they are in the Acalanes School District
Q: You live downtown, correct? Tell me about that and the unique home you are in.
Q: Yes, I live downtown in the Almond Shuey District and absolutely love it. In my neighborhood there are families, retired couples, executives, original homeowners, and more. The home we live in was the mayor's home in the 1930s, so it has a ton of historic and sentimental meaning to my family and to the city of Walnut Creek.
Q: What do you love most about this neighborhood?
A: I love the historic feeling that this neighborhood has. No two homes are the same! I love the close-knit community that is felt downtown. In fact, every year in August there is an Almond Shuey block party and is something we look forward to every year. it's a great opportunity to catch up with friends and neighbors.
