Bay-O-Vista Neighborhood is The Best Place to Live in San Leandro. California

Bay-O-Vista Neighborhood is located in the rolling hills east section of the city of San Leandro, CA. This is generally the most expensive area in this town of only 75,000 people. Situated right in the middle of the San Francisco bay, it has easy access to the Bay the San Mateo and the Dumbarton bridges. Only 20 minutes to downtown San Francisco, 10 minutes to Oakland International Airport and 45 minutes to San Francisco Airport.

San Leandro's Bay-O-Vista offers homes that are very spacious, typically ranchers with an average of about 2,200 square feet mostly in one level, most homes here have at least 3 bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two fireplaces and a spacious 2 car garage and boast very generous sized lots. The streets are wide and the views are impressive.  There is no public transportation in this area, nor miradors or places for the general public to come and enjoy the views of the bay, this helps keep Bay-O-Vista a very quiet, and low traffic area.

The most impressive part of San Leandro's Bay-O-Vista are the panoramic bay views, in the distance you can see the bay and in a clear summer night, (like in the picture below) you get presented with a show of lights at dusk, sunsets are the best part of the day for the views. At the back of the hill, the views are of the park and the lake.
