                  Location

                  Great location in the East Bay with views to San Francisco. Walking distance to Montclair town center with restaurants and shops. Five minute drive to Rockridge BART station and Rockridge neighborhood, with even more restaurants and shops. Twenty minute drive to Oakland airport and downtown San Francisco.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1994

                  About the owner: Owned by widow with two grown children. We moved here when our oldest child was in kindergarten, and our kids went through the local grade and high schools. It's a great neighborhood! I live here most of the year, and only rent this out when I'm traveling.

                  Why the Owner Chose Oakland:
                  Who doesn't love the San Francisco Bay Area? A little known secret is that the weather is much better in Oakland than in SF, because it is sunnier and warmer, but not hot like in the more suburban areas.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Enjoy eating or relaxing in the newly renovated inside rooms or outside on the new patio. Take a walk in the neighborhood and see the views of the Oakland and Berkeley hills, or turn the other direction and see the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges.
