Nestled in the coveted Claremont Hills, up a private tree-lined drive stands this custom-built home evoking New England traditions. Its generous floor plan is thoughtfully and architecturally designed to accommodate a modern lifestyle. The dining room with naturally finished built-ins and wet bar, opens to a living room perfect for entertaining, with a marble fireplace, box-beam ceiling, and balcony with verdant redwood views. The light-filled cook’s kitchen, with a sunny breakfast nook, leads to a redwood deck. The perfect spot to soak up the morning sun or cool down in the afternoon shade. Up two half flights of stairs are four bedrooms connected to the welcoming great room with vaulted ceiling and a fireplace of its own. The exquisite master suite features a relaxing jetted tub, oversized shower, and long marble vanity. An easily accessible attic as well as two-car garage provide ample storage space. There is plenty of parking available along this tranquil cul-de-sac. With nature trails and thriving flora nearby, it’s easy to forget you’re just minutes from shops, cafes, and easy commuting.
The Claremont neighborhood straddles the Berkeley and Oakland borders and features lush landscaping, curving streets that hug the canyon hills, and open space.
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.
