Living in Canyon
Does anyone have information about life in Canyon - in
particular the schools & the community, and how to find property
there? My husband and I are very interested in learning about
the area and possibly living there, but are having a hard time
finding a real estate agent with much information on/expertise
in the area. I understand that because it's a small community
and turnover is low, listings are infrequent - and may not exist
since homes are sometimes not sold in a conventional way - i.e.,
with agents. Any recommendations or leads for us would be really
appreciated. Thanks -
I too looked at homes in Canyon - there was one for sale about 18
months ago listed by a Lamorinda based Prudential agent, you
might try calling an office over there. I poked around at the
time and found this: http://www.canyon.k12.ca.us/ I recall
reading that kids should have an extra set of clothes at school
in case they get wet playing in the creek; I loved that! I don't
recall how I first stumbled upon the home - maybe just a broad
search on www.realtor.com or eastbayrealestatedirectory.com.
Actually, now that I think about it, there was a second home for
sale then too, but way out of my range. I can't recall if it was
agent listed or not. I decided not to pursue the one home
because it was in too poor repair (it's very moist back there)
and begrudgingly decided the community is too remote for my
family's other needs. I think the school has ''open houses'' where
you'd be sure to meet other families and make a connection and I
think some kids even bus in from outer areas of Moraga and
Orinda. Good luck!
Houses don't come up for sale very frequently in Canyon, but when they
do it's often posted first at the post office bulletin board in Canyon.
The Canyon School is indeed lovely, and many of the children come
from outside of the district. Give them a call and you can get information
about their transfer process. Good Luck.
