I was honored to be invited to tour another gorgeous new neighborhood by Toll Brothers, Inc. located in San Ramon in the community of Gale Ranch. This new neighborhood is called Lexington and the three model homes we toured did NOT disappoint! Let me first tell you a little about the city of San Ramon. San Ramon is a dynamic young city, one of California’s outstanding urban villages. It has a variety of homes, parks and stores and a major employment center — all in a setting of remarkable beauty.

Gale Ranch is a luxury master planned community in San Ramon, CA where families don’t just live—they thrive. Gale Ranch is an established community of luxury homes in the Bay Area. Known for award-winning schools and high-quality lifestyle, They are a community where families work, live, and play surrounded by luxury.

Now let’s talk about the new neighborhood, Lexington:

Lexington, which is the final new home build community in Gale Ranch, offers five charming home designs in a hillside location with views of Dougherty Valley. Its convenience to the area’s finest amenities including award-winning schools, neighborhood parks, The Plaza Shopping Center and City Center, which is a high-end shopping center that also offers entertainment, along with The Bridges Golf Club make this the perfect place to call home. A wide range of options, including expansive stacking doors and covered decks, allow each homeowner to personalize their home to fit their unique lifestyle.

The models we toured include:


  • 4 Bedrooms
  • 4.5 Baths
  • 3,091 sq ft.

My favorite features of this model include the open-concept kitchen, the outdoor entertaining space, the storage and the bathrooms!!

My favorite features on this home once again include an exquisite loft with an outdoor living space, the very modern design details and the openness of each floor. This plan is perfect for entertaining and for a large family.

I love being able to bring Kolton and Shayne to these open houses because it really gives me a different perspective on the properties. Being able to envision little ones running through a house brings them to life and immediately turns them into homes. I also love seeing their reactions! The “oohh’s” and “aahh’s” that they express remind me that sometimes the little things, like a hall closet that can double as a secret cave, are what are really important to finding the perfect home! With low maintenance yards, tons of living space and a gorgeous location, Lexington is a place I could envision raising my family!
