A village-like character and strong community spirit have long made El Cerrito a sought-after place to live. These qualities inspired Lafferty Communities to create Village 29, a collection of homes that reimagines village life for today’s homebuyers.
A car-free existence? This is the place! Just about everything you need is within a pleasant walk or bike ride from Village 29. Groceries, restaurants, cafes, one of the Bay Area’s great hardware stores, the historic Cerrito theater, the San Pablo Avenue Shopping District and the El Cerrito Plaza BART station are all within easy reach. That means you can get to work centers throughout Berkeley, Oakland and San Francisco, and to two airports, without getting in the car.
This post-car style of living fits perfectly with El Cerrito’s commitment to sustainability. The city has proactively established programs to protect watersheds, conserve water, promote a healthy urban forest and reduce pollution.
When you live at Village 29, leisure time is filled with possibilities. Central Park is right there, with its ball fields, grassy play areas and walking paths. El Cerrito’s Swim Center (with its popular splash park) is close by, as is the regional Bay Trail, which offers views of the salt marsh and the Golden Gate Bridge. The paved Ohlone Greenway Trail, which starts a few blocks from Village 29, runs more than 5 miles and ends near the U.C. Berkeley Campus.
Village 29 celebrates the strong sense of connection El Cerritans feel—to their community and to each other. So come home, kick back and step into village life–here at Village 29.
