3 bedroom TH maybe, or a house on a postage stamp with $400+ HOA fees. Or a scraper. Which are all, granted, reasonable enough options for people who just want to live in Danville for the location, location, location factor but don't have enormous wealth.

Ok, I need to start meeting more people in Diablo/Blackhawk. Anyone from the aforementioned area want to make friends?

As others have mentioned, Concord is not the Central Valley.

The start/end of the Bay Area and start/end of the Central Valley around the Delta is more of a gradual changeover as there are no major hills/passes similar to something like the Altamont/Pachecho pass....but, personally, I've always felt that the Central Valley in that direction started somewhere around Brentwood.

Not sure why we need 4 pages dedicated to this question, though. It really is a definitive "no."

Oh yeah, that sounds like "typical suburbia"
What would "Captain Dan" think?

Concord to me = De La Salle High School footbal and the Blue Devils Drum and Bugle Corps.
