A charming and spacious community with a focus on family.

Welcome to Lafayette


Once a wide expanse of quiet farmland, Lafayette began to grow after World War II, when the construction boom led to an increase in new homes. When BART arrived in the mid-1970s, Lafayette was connected to San Francisco and its future as a thriving and vibrant suburb was set. The Lafayette of today retains that small-town charm and bucolic beauty of yesteryear and now boasts a tight-knit, friendly community, excellent schools, and an idyllic setting to call home. 

With tree-lined streets, a bustling downtown district, and expansive green spaces, Lafayette has become the perfect blend of residential paradise, urban flair, and rural serenity. The downtown district is bustling and vibrant and the scenery is some of the best California has to offer. Housing here is as unique as the town is beautiful, with everything from updated single-family Craftsman and ranch styles, to magnificent estates, stunning mansions, and luxurious condo buildings complete with every amenity.
