Each peninsula of Discovery Bay is built into the delta formed by the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers. They are artificially created, but they also give almost everyone who lives there the chance to have a waterfront property. Homes around here also typically have views of the lovely Mt. Diablo, too.
Depending on the size of the house and the lot, the price you could pay for Discovery Bay waterfront homes for sale can vary by quite a lot. A home with nearly 2.5 acres of property could cost you $1.75 million, while a 7,400 square foot lot that is just waiting for you to build your own house would only be $300,000.
Other Discovery Bay waterfront homes for sale include large homes with plenty of bedrooms for the kids (or guests) and enough bathrooms that no one has to wait in line again. They can be as generously sized as 2,500 square feet, and still not cost you more than $850,000. Choose one story or two stories – it’s up to you.
If you have only heard of Discovery Bay and are not sure what makes it desirable, here are a just a few of the reasons why this area is ideal. It was developed in the 1970s as a planned community of summer homes near the cities of Brentwood and Byron. Now close to 16,000 people live there in every season. Depending on traffic, it takes about an hour to get into San Francisco, so you’re close to all of the action but you’re far enough away to relax and enjoy the water.
Discovery Bay is near I-680 and Highway 4 for easy access to all areas in and around the San Francisco Bay area. Livermore is one of those nearby cities, home to Sandia Laboratories and Kaiser.
The delta area means you have plenty of opportunities for water sports like boating and fishing, and it also means there is a natural water source for vineyards and olive groves to grow nearby. Golf courses are plentiful as are hiking trails and other recreational activities. Tennis courts abound for healthy exercise as do children’s playgrounds.
Some of the Discovery Bay waterfront homes for sale are single-family dwellings, while others are condos or townhouses. There is also the Discovery Bay Golf and Country Club that features an exclusive yacht club for those who love to take their boats out on the water for the day. There’s also a public yacht marina and harbor for storing and launching boats.
There are plenty of educational opportunities around, with public school district Byron Union School District serving the area’s K-12 students. They graduate nearly 90% of their seniors, which any more is a remarkable record. There are several colleges with enrollments over 2,000 also nearby. These include Los Medanos College in Pittsburg and San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton.
