A Neighborhood for Every Lifestyle
Round Park is across the street and a stream runs through the large, level gorgeous lot...the ultimate location AND there is a beautiful house as well. This lovely traditional has great detailing, sun-filled living room, dining room with built-ins, lots of bookshelves, a fabulous sunroom, great office with wall of bookshelves, and country style kitchen with dining banquette opening to the garden. PLUS there is a most gorgeous, permitted 2 story art studio with bath. Enclosed by a flowering vine covered fence, the gate opens into a special world of beauty, privacy, quiet and serenity. Near pool and tennis clubs, SF Express Bus, BART, fine dining, and Star Market. Great location to meet neighbors, dogs and kids!
The Claremont neighborhood straddles the Berkeley and Oakland borders and features lush landscaping, curving streets that hug the canyon hills, and open space. Homes on the leafy side streets provide old-fashioned Berkeley elegance, with turn-of-the-century brown shingles, revivals, prairie-, custom contemporary-, and Tudor-styled structures offering residents a place to call home within the landscaped confines.
The landmark of this area is the majestic Claremont Hotel Club & Spa, a vast Victorian edifice perched on 22 acres in the hills. Three outdoor pools, 10 tennis courts, a full-service spa, a fitness club, and three onsite restaurants deliver stunning views, and the resort has become popular with generations of locals as a luxurious getaway.
Elmwood's shopping district on College Avenue in Berkeley offers old-fashioned shops, access to the Rockridge Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), grocery stores, bookshops, and flower stands. Restaurants, a movies theater, and a bakery are all a short walk away.
The Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve is 208 acres of open space managed by the East Bay Regional Park District and more than 200 acres outside of the canyon owned by the University of California, Berkeley. Garber Park, a 13-acre oak-and-bay-tree woodland south of Claremont Avenue, is owned by the city of Oakland. Trails reward ambitious hikers with panoramic views of San Francisco Bay.
