Hidden Oaks is located in Lafayette, California, one of the Bay Area’s most desirable communities. Nestled among the oaks and rolling hills of Contra Costa County, Hidden Oaks has the advantage of a quiet semi-rural setting with close proximity to the Bay Area’s best arts, entertainment, recreation, fine shopping and cuisine.
Founded in 1857, Lafayette has skillfully preserved its character while investing in the quality of its top-ranked schools, tastefully designed village shopping areas and recreational facilities for its active lifestyle.
Lafayette is the “La” in the suburban enclave known as Lamorinda that also includes Orinda and Moraga. This area is rich in performing arts and boasts such venues as the outdoor California Shakespeare Festival, the classic art deco Orinda movie house, and Lafayette Town Hall. Nearby opportunities are exceptional, including Walnut Creek’s Dean Lesher Regional Center for the Arts, Oakland’s classic Paramount Theatre, and San Francisco’s Davies Symphony Hall.
In addition, Lamorindans enjoy exceptional weather, easy access to BART and the peace of mind that comes from living in a safe and secure community.
And Lafayette adds to the Lamorinda splendor…
Lafayette is family oriented. The Lafayette School District and Acalanes Union High School District boast ratings in the top percentiles of all California schools. Residents take pride in the schools and routinely pass bond measures to finance upgraded programs and facilities.

Lafayette is youth-oriented and sports-minded. Throughout the year recreational teams play and cheer at modernized fields and facilities. St. Mary’s College in Moraga and the University of California, Berkeley, offer a full range of collegiate sporting events to entertain any sports enthusiast.
Lafayette is an outdoor community. The Lafayette-Moraga Regional Trail head is nearby. Further down Mt. Diablo Blvd. is the Lafayette Reservoir with its wide-open spaces and hiking trails. Residents also enjoy the East Bay Municipal Water District’s 80-mile system of hiking and horseback riding trails.
For those reasons, Lafayette was chosen for Hidden Oaks’ serene setting. It is as desirable today as it was hundreds of years ago when Native Americans lived among the same meandering oaks. Though there is a sharp contrast between the simplicity of the past and today’s affluent lifestyle, similarities do exist. Historians suggest that the original Saklan Indians were a dignified community; committed to family life; and enjoyed spending time playing field games, socializing, and dancing. Today, the same can be said of those who decide on a home in Lafayette at Hidden Oaks.
