    I’ve never had one – grew up in a condo with a patio, and last year bought my own condo with a patio. But it’s nothing new – my place was built in 1965. I’d love a backyard, but I have no desire to live in Norco…

    Growing up in Palo Alto we had one of the few very large lots that provided a very large backyard. Between the weeping willow being used for treehouses, the Walnut Tree being used for a re-make of planet of the apes, and the fruit trees in the back ringed around the hole to china….backyards have been very important to me.

    Needless to say with our first condo, then townhome purchases, our backyards were, well,…non-existant. Our first “real house” in the Bay Area was on a cul-de-sac (end house_ and had a triangle shaped property. Very large backyard, since then it is the #2 requirement on our list when looking for a home (#1 is schools now, #3 is price). Our current house sits yet again on the end of a cul-de-sac in north Fullerton, with yet again a triangle shape property, and a large backyard. You need room for kids, dog, BBQ, parties, and the newly planted Willow and Walnut trees.

    So you dont need to live in Norco….big backyards can be found….
