In this month’s installment of Cali Comparables, we compare three similarly priced listings (priced around $2.3 million) in three different East Bay locations. One property in Danville is a Tuscan dream with six bedrooms and 5,177 square feet. In San Ramon, a traditional-style 4,578 square-foot home gives you a view. And if you want remodeled perfection, sweeping views with sunsets and plenty of space to spread out with 2,411 square feet on one level, look no further than the Orinda home. One thing is for sure: the further east you go, the more you get for your money!
