Dublin California is a vibrant and fast growing city located at the crossroads of I-680 and I-580. Historically, Dublin had been a sleepy bedroom community originally settled in the 1800s, mainly by Irish immigrants. Back then, it was located at the junction of two important stage coach lines (the early gold rush equivalent of interstate 580 & 680). Many of the historic influences can be seen in Dublin today, including a pioneer graveyard and church. For much of the 1960s through the 1980s Dublin was a small, charming community proud of its Irish heritage, with affordable housing and strong community ties.
Beginning in the late 1990s, Dublin experienced a dramatic transformation from a small bedroom community to a more urban, planned modern city with sparkling subdivisions, golf courses, major shopping centers, new schools and parks, and upscale homes, many well over $1 million.
The population of Dublin has increased dramatically to around 35,000, and the city aggressively attracted forward-thinking development, with high-end mixed use projects, boutique shopping centers, major office and large tenant retail developments, and higher density housing developments near BART and transportation hubs. Dublin’s strategic location has created strong demand from major employers, including Sybase, Palo Alto Medical Foundation, and Kaiser Permanente, as well as home buyers. The unmatched quality of life in Dublin has made it a destination for buyers looking for the ultimate in suburban living.
Dublin CA offers many neighborhoods, with prices ranging from $400,000 to well over $1 million. Dublin enjoys an abundance of new homes and properties, and offers buyers outstanding real estate opportunities. Dublin Ranch, a master planned community on the Eastern flank of the city, combines higher density condo & attached homes with traditional detached single family homes, built around the Dublin Ranch golf club, a magnificent golf course and clubhouse with sweeping views of the valley. Dublin boasts Hacienda Crossings, a popular shopping center and movie theatre complex with tenants such as Best Buy, Old Navy, Any Mountain, Barnes & Noble, and more. Several high end retail developments are planned for the East Dublin area, providing excellent access to shopping and services alike. There is also an additional BART station set to open in West Dublin across from the Stoneridge Mall. With such excellent access to transportation, plentiful housing options, a strong employment base, and abundant retail and medical resources, Dublin real estate is poised to continue its strong historic appreciation in the years to come.
