One of the best places to visit in Emerald Cove is the Emerald Cove park. Located just around the corner of Haman and Patton, the park is directly attached to one of the finest schools in the district, the Discovery Elementary School. 

You can come for a peaceful walk, just to enjoy the fresh breeze in the morning after you drop off your children at school. Or you could bring your children here and have a bit of outdoor bonding. The scene is just right for you. 

If you are dropping off your children at school and missing a cup of coffee in the rush, no need to be down. There is a Starbucks right next to the other side of the school. So no worries even if you occasionally miss a cup or two.

The other great thing about Emerald Cove Park is that it is almost a central area surrounded by shopping places and coffee houses. It is a main spot in the northwestern Bakersfield area. 

Details on Property

 You already know the street names are fancy and named after gems. The houses are custom-made as mentioned earlier. What else is there in this uncommon neighborhood? Well, lots!

Having fancy street names is only an additional bonus to the excellent community that exists at Emerald Cove. The cost of an average home here starts at 650,000 dollars and up depending upon the construction and upgrades of the property. But even the highest cost doesn’t go above the lower 8 figures.

From a price point of view that is quite reasonable.

The area only had two properties on the market in the last year and that too only for ten days. That’s how quickly they sold. If we check in detail these houses were about 20 years old, built in the early 2000s. 

With four bedrooms, two and a half baths, three garages, 1 RV, and a side yard, the houses were as spacious as any palace. A lot of the houses in Emerald Cove are of similar construction in terms of space and elegance.

But, a lot of houses are even bigger and more spectacular than the ones mentioned before. They are either custom-made or semi-custom-made making them one of a kind and unique in the entire neighborhood. But then again Emerald itself is one of a kind gem.

It is a highly desirable place to live in in the northwestern part of Bakersfield and make no mistake the most sought after as well given the houses were on the market only for ten days. 

Apart from being spacious with large lots you have the benefit of extra square footage for your property. This is because back in the early 2000s it was the norm. Hence all houses are humongous. 

You also get to have gorgeous entryways, mesmerizing landscapes, and clean, wide streets.
