J. Rockcliff: Walnut Creek

J. Rockcliff Realtors


Walnut Creek is a bedroom community of San Francisco which encompasses 19.14 square miles and is home to approximately 65,000 residents. Formerly known as “The Corners” because of its location where two roads met on the way from Pacheco to Oakland, the town was renamed Walnut Creek in 1862 in deference to the many fruit and nut orchards in the area. Today, Walnut Creek still sits at the intersection of two major highways (680 and 24) making it a central location to many points.

Walnut Creek sits at the foot of beautiful Mt. Diablo affording endless opportunities for hiking and exploring. The Lesher Center for the Arts is the premier destination for an exceptional arts and entertainment experience. First opened in October 1990, the Center now presents more than 900 productions and events each year. A day spent at Heather Farms Park can range from enjoying a picnic while feeding the ducks to watching the Walnut Creek Aquanauts make magic at the pool. The kids will love learning about rescued animals (that in many cases they may hold) at the Alexander Lindsey Junior Wildlife Museum.

Walnut Creek’s bustling downtown is home to many gourmet eateries. Broadway Plaza, the cornerstone of the downtown area boasts designer retail shopping, including Nordstrom, Macy’s, Tiffany, William Sonoma, Restoration Hardware and others, all set in an outdoor mall area featuring plazas brimming with flowers!

Walnut Creek offers the best of all worlds; from live/work urban condominiums to “Leave It To Beaver” neighborhoods to multi-million dollar estates.

Our Walnut Creek Office is a landmark in and of itself! Built using 100% recycled materials; this gorgeous building is an architectural masterpiece! Situated across the street from the Lesher Center for the Arts, you will know it by the interesting “Drunken Brick” façade and turret.
