When it comes to architecture, Pleasanton is renowned for its Victorian-style homes.

Welcome to Pleasanton

An affluent, mid-sized city with a cute and vibrant downtown
About an hour from San Francisco by car, Pleasanton has long been favored as a day-trip destination, offering big-city residents an escape in the form of beautiful outdoor spaces, a lovely Old Town, and a Mediterranean climate. However, Pleasanton is also a great spot to set down roots, as residents searching for their dream homes quickly fall in love with its charming, quiet streets.
When it comes to architecture, Pleasanton is renowned for its Victorian-style homes. These beautiful homes were built by local architects in the late 19th century and are now some of the most sought-after properties in the city. Pleasanton Old Town is an excellent representation of the city's past and is home to the Pleasanton Heritage Museum, which tells the story of the city's founding. Of late, Pleasanton’s job market has been energized by an influx of corporations — Safeway and Workday have headquarters in Pleasanton.
