Blackhawk since it's establishment has been a high earning and exclusive community. Even in 1986 Blackhawk
was on the top 15 most affluent neighborhoods in the US, but now we're climbing the charts now at the number 7 spot among CNN Money's top 25 list. Dominating the top 25 national list is the Bay Area with Hillsborough(#1), Los Altos Hills (#3), Blackhawk(#7), Saratoga(#17), Piedmont(#21), and neighboring Alamo(#23). Here you can find complete data on our beloved community....
Personally I think that Blackhawk offers much more than many notable cities and communities. The general quality of life and casual living is unmatched anywhere in the nation. Here people can go to San Francisco on a whim or go to ski or boat at their cabin in Tahoe. The Community is far away from the hustle of the larger cities tucked up in the foothills of Mt. Diablo providing both tranquility and serenity.
The exclusivity of the private gated community is notable, as well, boasting two championship golf courses and county clubs within it's main gates. If you don't prefer the social frills of the main gate then Blackhawk caters to those individuals with seven other gated communities to choose from.
Hidden Oaks- The first Blackhawk development, offering homes all over 1/2 and acre with a country charm.
Saddleback- Many of the largest estates of Blackhawk are found here most on five acres or more.
Oakridge- Mostly medium sized homes with a few Large Estate homes on private streets atop hills.
Tennis Villas- Mostly duet homes focused around the Blackhawk tennis club
Silver Maple- Medium sized homes focused around the stretches of the Lakes golf course, yet no streets are attatched to the main community.
Siver Oak- A luxury condo community.
Eagle Nest- A gated community within the main gates of Blackhawk. All the residences are behind their own private gates as well to their estates atop a ridge overlooking the entire golf community
