I posted this in the general California forum but haven't gotten any responses. Maybe someone here can help.

We are considering a move back to California from the east coast and dh would be working in St. Helena. We are a fairly conservative, traditional type family. We have two children who we would want to put in a parochial school.Our price range for a 3,000 sq. ft. home would be about $650,000. Safety and a good Christian School are our primary concerns. A 45 minute commute to St. Helena is about the max. dh would want to take on. We will be coming out in April. Any suggestions where to look? TIA

I would take a serious look at Napa. There is a very good Christian School there though I don't recall the name of it. Some good restaurants, fairly family oriented. Within Napa itself you would need to look at the various different neighborhoods as there are both good and bad as with any city.

I would not go any further south on hwy 29 than that as you then get into the Vallejo area that you want to stay out of.

Going west you might look at Santa Rosa though this would be more of an hour commute. Some people don't like that drive but I personally love it. It is over the hills and sort of windy in some areas. But as with Napa, Santa Rosa does have a good Christian School and some rather nice neighborhoods (and some bad). Again not sure I would go much further south than that only because you would then increase your commute time.
