San Ramon Real Estate – Home Styles

San Ramon real estate covers many styles and price ranges. There are affordable condos and townhomes, luxury townhomes, patio homes, and high density planned unit developments. Many neighborhoods comprise single family homes both large and small.

Modest older homes from the 1960s can be found in south San Ramon and then in the 1970s, new homes tended to be a little larger, as can be observed in neighborhoods like Twin Creeks & Bollinger Hills area. Then in more recent times, 3 major master planned communities on the Eastern edge of San Ramon in the Dougherty Valley were established – Gale Ranch, The Bridges, and Windemere. The seemingly never-ending supply of new homes in Gale Ranch makes San Ramon a popular destination for new home buyers.


San Ramon has two distinct zip codes, 94583 and 94582. The first of these, San Ramon 94583, covers the west side of San Ramon where most of the older developments are situated. This is what would generally be thought of as the center of San Ramon as it spans highway 680 and has numerous shopping centers.

San Ramon 94582 is the newer zip code and although some of the developments there hark back to the 1980s, it also contains the largest neighborhoods in San Ramon – Canyon Lakes, Gale Ranch and Windemere.

Where To Live in San Ramon

San Ramon real estate options are extremely varied and there are really no bad neighborhoods here.

If you like more traditional homes, perhaps with a nice size back yard, you will probably gravitate towards the older developments on the west side. If your ideal home is a large modern home with high ceilings and a fairly small yard, the newer neighborhoods on the east side may be more to your liking.

Having said that, though, there are some substantial newer homes on the west side as well, notably in Norris Canyon Estates.

And if your San Ramon real estate interests are more modest – condos, for example, you should find possibilities spread throughout San Ramon.
