Neighborhood Spotlight: Walnut Creek in Plymouth Township

Walnut Creek Colonial

Plymouth Township had a surge of suburban development in the 1960’s-1970’s that resulted in creating many prominent Township neighborhoods, including Walnut Creek. This quaint neighborhood has about 80 homes built in the late 1970s that range from 2,050 sq. ft. ranches to 3,400+ sq. ft. colonials, tudors, and other styles.  All homes in Walnut Creek have basements, attached garages, at least 3 bedrooms and at least 2 full baths. There are two entrances off of North Territorial – Portsmouth Crossing and Haverhill. Both streets connect at the South end of the neighborhood. The association recently replaced their entry signs with ‘Walnut Creek’ carved beautifully into stone.

In recent years, sold prices have ranged from $305,000 to a high of $419,000. The average sales price since September of 2014 is $398,600.  With sizes varying dramatically and each home designed independently, it’s hard not to love Walnut Creek.  This neighborhood prides itself on being a nature lover’s paradise with mature trees and rolling hills. Because of these hills, some homes feature walk-out basements.  Homes sit on at least 0.3 acres each, some elevated on a hill or tucked away on a cul-de-sac.

  • 13175 Wyndham Court sold for $395,000

Walnut Creek is in the Plymouth-Canton school district. Children from this particular neighborhood may attend Bird Elementary and West Middle Schools, which are both on Sheldon Road.   All students in Plymouth-Canton’s district will go on to PCEP (Plymouth Canton Educational Park).  The Park is comprised of all three high schools for the district and a lottery decides whether your child will go to Canton, Salem or Plymouth high school.  There are also many private and charter schools in the area for you to select from.
