I recently sold 1924 Pomar in this complex. Up until this time the market was lagging and the few sales were closing in the low to mid $300,000. As Spring sprung, inventory was extremely tight and Pomar had 9 offers and closed for $420,000 the winning bid removed their appraisal contingency. With prices on the upswing, Sunset Park has seen a handful of new listings and prices continue to rise (although as more hit the market I am sensing some stabilization).

This house is for rent, offered at $9,950 per month. Ideal for the A’s baseball player or Oakland Raider football player!
It includes a 4 car garage, 6127 sq. ft. 5 bedrooms & 4.5 baths overlooking Walnut Creek and amazing views of Mt. Diablo, especially from the infinity pool. For those of you who live in the neighborhood, this home during construction burned down twice within two years. I will never forget waking to noises at 5:30 am on a Saturday morning in July day of a Dewing Park swim meet. Embers were floating down the hill onto roof tops and everyone was out watching and watering down their roof tops. A year later appx. the same weekend, it was torched again. The Police never found the arsonist, however once it was completed, it was left alone.
What is being built on the corner of Cypress & Broadway – A shop called the Wedding Dressers. With Clarissa’s no longer in business, future brides can shop close to home.

Each month, on the Second Saturday Spotlight will “shine” on a new subject for Walnut Creek. From 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. will include hands-on demonstrations and guided tours in and around our city.
If you liked the movie Lincoln and want to learn more about our 16th President, then check out the first Spotlight event this Saturday January 12 for “Walnut Creek Library’s Inside Story” with a docent tour of the national touring Lincoln Exhibit. I will be volunteering at the event and hope to see you. Doors open @ 8:45 am.
