This five bed, three and a half bath home just south of Stone Valley Road in Alamo took a little time but finally sold for $250,000 less than the list price. It has a half-acre lot, gourmet kitchen, lots of deck space and it’s at the end of a court. Oh yeah, and a three car garage.

Anyone know what’s going on with the temporary orange fences at 680S between Walnut Creek and Danville?
From a reader:
