Castlewood Apartments, Still First in Downtown Luxury
Build in the 1970s as one of the first luxury apartment communities in all of Walnut Creek, Castlewood Apartment Homes have a long tradition of raising the quality of apartment living. “It was so far ahead of its time,” a local architect was recently quoted as saying. “Even some of today’s newest properties can’t compete with it.”
A high rise style community with elevators, trash shoots and underground parking, Castlewood is three towering buildings surrounding a straight out of a magazine tropical resort, giving Castlewood that Castle-wood feel. “It’s easy to see where they got the name from,” a long time Walnut Creek resident says. “It’s like they build a modern day castle inside a tropical forest.”
Located in the skies of downtown at the top of the hill where Lincoln Avenue (off North Broadway) meets Mt Pisgah Road (off Mt Diablo Blvd), Castlewood residents are in the unique position to enjoy the comforts of a secluded, suburban lifestyle with the suspense and excitement that comes with living amidst a popular downtown city location. Residents can spend a vociferous night in the city before returning home to enjoy a soothing night’s sleep.
“When downtown Walnut Creek is literally your backyard,” one resident confesses. “You don’t exactly have to entertain at home.”
Though staying at home, where many apartments have recently been upgraded with all new kitchens and bathrooms does have its benefits as well. As one twenty plus year resident says, "I fell in love with Castlewood many years ago and she's always taken good care of me. I couldn't imagine anywhere else being home."
