The History Of Blackhawk
Blackhawk was developed in the late 1970s by the Blackhawk Development Corporation, a company formed by Florida real estate developer, Ken Behring on what was previously Blackhawk Ranch. Approximately 2,400 homes were built and 2,000 acres were dedicated to Open Space as part of the Mount Diablo State Park.
Blackhawk‘s reputation for high-end luxury homes is longstanding and well deserved. Although there are many homes here that were built speculatively and with well under 2,500 square feet of living space, even including some townhomes, a glance along Blackhawk Drive reveals numerous architectural styles where an English Tudor sits happily alongside a French Provincial or a Greek Revival home. Many of these properties are over 5,000 square feet and built to the highest standards.
But Blackhawk is about more than real estate. There are many social and recreational activities here, most of which center around the Prestigious Blackhawk Country Club with two championship golf courses, swimming pools, tennis courts and two club houses. Then, there is the Blackhawk Shopping Center which features numerous quality restaurants and stores together with the world famous Blackhawk Motor Museum.
