About El Sobrante Real Estate
El Sobrante located in West Contra Costa (between Richmond and Pinole), means remaining land, leftover or surplus. The San Pablo dam supplying drinking water to many in the county runs through the north-east portion of El Sobrante. Nestled in a valley surrounded by rolling hills many of the homes offer pastoral hill views and larger lots with plenty of elbow room.
There may not be a sidewalk though as El Sobrante is an unincorporated area of Contra Costa County and has no city government. The population, estimated at about 12,500, can enjoy plenty of hiking trails leading through Wildcat Canyon Regional Park and the San Pablo Reservoir Recreation Area. El Sobrante real estate is the choice for many people looking to find a balance and escape from the fast pace inner city life style. Plenty of shops, restaurants and affordable homes add to the allure of El Sobrante living.
