What is Saddleback at Blackhawk?

Saddleback was built as a second of the many phases of Blackhawk, not long after Hidden Oaks was developed. Predominantly built from 1979-1988, architecture is varied, with most homes having a California contemporary feel. Each of the 53 homes in the development has been individually custom-designed and built. With Saddleback drive appearing to be one massive horseshoe on the map, Saddleback has the benefit of large lots ranging from just over one acre to seven acres. These lots provide real privacy with many spectacular views of Mt. Diablo and the East Bay hills, while remaining as close as a golf cart ride from the main Blackhawk Clubhouse.

The original concept of allowing horse properties in Saddleback remains intact, with a few equine residents still in the neighborhood. However, several enterprising residents have used space afforded by the large lots to build everything from an artist's retreat to a workout facility, to a collector car garage.

Saddleback at Blackhawk is a gated community, but it has an easy to use entry system allows guests and service workers ready access to residents as needed. Saddleback is a quiet, yet friendly place to live, with most residents committed to a long term stay - several of whom have turned down transfers just to remain in this very special place to live.
