Homes For Sale In Canyon Lakes
Canyon Lakes is one of San Ramon’s few gated communities with over 3,000 homes. All are built in a contemporary style, perhaps a little ahead of their time for the mid-1980s with double-height rooms, cathedral ceilings and display shelves being prominent features. Outside, Spanish style tile roofs and white stucco walls are common elements.
This is a large, sprawling neighborhood with plenty of greenery. It is positioned between Bollinger Canyon Road and Crow Canyon Road to the east of 680. Access to the main part of Canyon Lakes is via a manned gated entrance on Crow Canyon Road. Other sections can be reached via gated entrances off Bollinger Canyon Road.
Canyon Lakes Home Sizes / Types
There is a very wide range of home styles in Canyon Lakes from small 1 bedroom condominiums in a variety of different types of building, to 4 bedroom detached single family homes. There are also townhomes, some of which are “upside down” with the bedrooms below the street level living areas. Detached homes are either two story or tri-level. No single level detached homes can be found here though. Lot sizes, in the main, are fairly small, mostly less than 6,000 square feet although there are homes with lots up to 10,000 square feet in size.
The range of facilities was a major attraction when this gated community was developed and includes a pool, clubhouse, spa and tennis courts as well as a golf course, although that requires a separate membership. The large man-made lake is also a major feature.
Canyon Lakes residents enjoy country club style living. There is a large, impressive lake here and homes overlooking the lake or the golf course are significantly more expensive than the rest.
