Greenbrook Neighborhood in Danville California CA 94526

By
Real Estate Agent with Empire Realty Associates

Want to buy a home in Danville, California but can't decide which neighborhood is right for you and your family? You might consider the Greenbrook neighborhood - a seasoned community with lots of benefits:

Danville California neighborhoods of Greenbrook, Sycamore and Danville Station

Club House

Greenbrook was developed in the 1970's. The beauty of the neighborhood is that it has lots of parks, a wonderful swimming pool and club house to which people who own in this area automatically belong. The clubhouse has lots of activities for family and children like an Easter egg hunt and holiday festivities - the club house is a great community gathering place.

Open Space

As you can see, there is lots of green open space that meanders throughout the Greenbrook neighborhood. People love to walk their dogs along here....run...and walk. There are over 3 miles of meandering trails and greenbelt running through Greenbrook, as well as the adjacent communities of Danville Station and Sycamore. It's a great asset to all these communities.

Lawn Mower Brigade

There's history here. The men of Greenbrook have, what they call, The Lawnmower Brigade. Every year, they enter the Danville 4th of July parade with their lawnmowers and fun hats. I guess the grass is gonna have to mow itself that day!

Remodeling

There's been a great deal of remodeling done in this neighborhood over the years to bring these houses up-to-date. In the video below, you'll see an example of a house that's been remodeled in this neighborhood. It has all new windows and stone steps going up to the front door - it has character. They also added a considerable amount of square footage to this house.


Love

People love this neighborhood for its meandering streets, good location to downtown Danville and close - but not too close - proximity to the freeway. It's a very family-oriented, community-centered neighborhood.

Schools

Located in the boundaries of the Greenbrook neighborhood is the Greenbrook Elementary School. It was recently remodeled and it's an excellent school academically.It has lots of activity fields for different sports like baseball, basketball and soccer. They have a Kids' Country program here for mom's who work so their children can stay after the school hours are complete. You will also find the Charlotte Wood Middle School in this neighborhood.

Mary,

You really got a lot of information about the neighborhood into a short video. I know it wasn't easy to get the clips of people riding the bikes, the remodelers and the lawnmower brigade!
