The end of the railroad line was Diablo, the summer destination for wealthy San Franciscans who longed for warmer temperatures and an escape from the fog. Diablo was once filled with summer cottages many of which didn’t have kitchens because the residents took their meals at “the club”. Today, about 400 homes are nestled within the less than one square mile called Diablo which is filled with some of the more exclusive estates in the San Ramon Valley and are just a short golf cart ride away from the historic country club. Diablo continues to celebrate a rich history that dates back more than 100 years. Its residents recognize and honor properties for upholding the charm of Diablo’s early years by awarding homes the Diablo’s Preservation Award and the Diablo Treasure Award for beauty and historical significance. The Diablo Country Club turned into a world-class golf and country club in 1914. Designed by Jack Neville and William Watson, the par 71 course is still recognized as one of the most desirable courses to play in the San Francisco Bay Area. The club is currently undergoing a $31 million renovation that will include a three-story, 15,000 square-foot “Family Activity and Wellness Center” followed by a renovation of the main clubhouse.Tucked in along Diablo Road, Diablo is just a short drive to freeway access, downtown Danville, Walnut Creek BART, and top-rated schools in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District.
