Moraga, with its breathtaking views and quiet residential areas, is the most exclusive corner of the Lamorinda area. This quaint Contra Costa County community in the East Bay region is peaceful and luxurious — the true essence of California living. 

Moraga, named for a ranchero that founded the town in the late 19th century, was once a stopping point along the Sacramento Northern Railroad. The community has a rich history linked to the agriculture and exploration that are hallmarks of California.

This idyllic suburban enclave is within commuting distance of the San Francisco and Oakland metro areas but maintains its reposeful vibe. Active residents love the wide open spaces for walking, hiking, and biking among the rolling hillsides. And sports enthusiasts will find plenty of courses, courts, and fields around the community’s public parks and private clubs. 

What to Love

  • Serene, tranquil residential areas
  • Highly rated local public schools
  • Casually elegant eateries and cafes
  • Stunning California landscape
