Things we love about this property crush: 

It’s your chance to snag a space in the East Bay for an affordable-to-California price tag. This condo is in Walnut Creek, an urban oasis that’s surrounded by hillsides—and known for the mild Mediterranean climate. But more specifically, it’s in Cactus Court—a sought-after area where you’re sure to meet loads of neighbor friends. And here, you’ll have space to entertain them.

This condo is built on the lower level and spills out on to a patio with lovely landscaping and greenery. Imagine cool California evenings with a glass of wine out here. 

Inside, you’ll step into a bright and airy space with big windows and beautiful hardwood flooring. We’re picturing lots of Scandinavian furnishings. This opens to a nicely-sized dining space with more of those big windows (aka, so much natural light). Make your way to the kitchen. It’s simple but sweet with retro sunny yellow countertops and an oven to match.

Two bedrooms make up the home, each large enough for your bed and additional furnishings; both have new carpeting, too. There are two full bathrooms, one of which is en suite, and each with plenty of storage space. 

Our favorite part of the condo has got to be the glass-enclosed porch that almost feels as if you’re sitting on a house boat—all without the hassle. This would be the ideal spot for a breakfast table and lounge furnishings. Or maybe a fun bar cart. Your morning coffee and evening cocktail would have a designated area.

The condo is in Rossmoor, one of the area’s most coveted neighborhoods, and close to the Gateway Clubhouse, a farmer’s market, movie theater, and lots of art studios.
