Great location — walk everywhere

The vibrant Elmwood and Rockridge commercial districts are just 5 blocks away, bookending this Berkeley/Oakland border. Our walk score is 92! Although street parking is available, because of easy access to Bart (7 blocks), bus lines (1 block) and bicycle routes, having a car is not necessary. Nearby are all manner of shops and restaurants, UC Berkeley, farmers markets, tot parks, Alta Bates Hospital and the best of the East Bay. San Francisco is just a 20 minute Bart ride away. There is also easy freeway access. Famous for its charm and great weather, Rockridge is enjoyed and written about by many from around the world.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1992

              About the owner: I work in information technology as a user experience designer. I delight in making systems work for people. The bay area is the place where technology and people interact to invent the future. My family and I have lived on our quiet residential street for over 20 years. It offers a great mix of quiet neighborliness with semi-urban vibrancy. I walk, cycle or ride transit to nearly everywhere I go. My family and I live upstairs in a separate unit, where we can be responsive to guests' needs.

              Why the Owner Chose Oakland:
              We are close to all that we need on a monthly basis -- shops, schools, theaters, museums, transit, the University of California. Even the two international airports are easy to reach on transit.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The large windows in the first bedroom bring the outdoors in. There is a view of beautiful trees and the east bay hills. The weather is gentle throughout the year. Generations of children have learned to ride their bicycles on the nearby church/exercise lot. There are several farmers markets a few minutes away. The community is rich and diverse.
