Clayton is a quite town nestled in the foothills of Mount Diablo. The town is in Contra Costa County and is approximately 9 miles from the shopping, restaurants, and attractions in Walnut Creek; it is about 30 miles from the cultural and culinary attractions of San Francisco. The city of Clayton recently ranked (according to FBI reports) as the second safest city in California cities of 10,000 or more.
Buying a home in Clayton is the perfect option for outdoor enthusiasts. Walking Magazine has honored Clayton with an award, calling it one of the most walkable small cities in America. The city has over 500 acres of open space, along with 50 acres of parks. However, the recreation options don't stop there as there are 25 miles of walking and hiking trails that are part of the Clayton trail system.
In addition, the town is close to a number of state parks, Yosemite, wine country, and the Pacific Ocean. Clayton real estate is a good investment not only because of the city's natural attractions, but because of its excellent schools, low crime rate, and most importantly, because home prices are continuing to rise. This shows that investing in Clayton is a sound decision. The schools are outstanding, and the Mt. Diablo Unified School District is recognized as one of the best districts in the state.
In February 2010, the average home sales price for a single family home or condo in Clayton was $560,400. While this data is collected from the MLS and deemed reliable, it is not guaranteed.
