Small Town Feel - Urban Offerings

Homes on these neighborhood streets provide old-fashioned Berkeley elegance, with turn-of-the-century brown shingles, revivals, prairie-style, custom contemporary, craftsmans and Tudor-styled structures offering residents a place to call home within their landscaped confines. The much sought-after neighborhoods of Elmwood/Claremont have a rich architectural history. Early 20th-century houses, estates, and some of the more notable homes designed by prominent turn-of-the-century Bay Area architect Julia Morgan can be found in this neighborhood. 

Elmwood's shopping district on College Avenue in Berkeley offers old-fashioned shops, The extreme-local shopping district centered at the intersection of College and Ashby avenues is a bustling hive of activity, featuring an array of gourmet eateries, boutique shops, cafes, and restaurants. A movie theater, multiple bakeries and the Zip Code "94705" branch of the US Post Office are all a short stroll away.  In the opposite direction on College Avenue one will access the Rockridge neighborhood, including Rockridge Station - Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) which is on the "SFO" airport line. Grocery stores, bookshops, and flower stands are all found just a few blocks away. Residents of Elmwood also enjoy an easy walk to multiple commute options as well as a library, and parks. For an only-in-Elmwood, experience, visit Mrs. Dalloway's, a shop that combines a bookstore and garden supplies, or Rialto Cinemas Elmwood, a Berkeley city landmark that houses a three-screen cinema. In terms of hyperlocal culture, Julia Morgan Theatre offers camps and classes as well as performances of music, dance, and theater throughout the year.

You'll also find small town activities throughout the year in this coveted neighborhood! On the Claremont end of the block, the Star Grocery (having just celebrated their 100th Year!) hosts a pumpkin carving contest, held annually for many years, it is a fun way to get to know your neighbors (and express yourself!). Russell Street (between College Ave & Claremont Ave) is closed to traffic every year on Halloween where thousands join in the holiday spirit in costume, visiting the many elaborately (often politically inspired) decorated houses. On the 4th of July, neighbors are invited to participate in a celebration that includes a small parade and gathering on The Uplands. 

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. As a 30+ year member of the Claremont Pool & Tennis Club, Diana Yonkouski, Bay Area Properties Broker, is happy to answer any questions and introduce you to the club and it's management.

The Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve, 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 is adjacent to the hotel for hiking. The trails reward ambitious hikers with panoramic San Francisco Bay views - which is special all day, but especially so for sunrise/sunset. Garber Park, a 13-acre oak-and-bay-tree woodland south of Claremont Avenue, is owned by the city of Oakland. 

As with any university city, Berkeley residents benefit from the arts, sports, intellectual offerings and entertainment that the world renown campus of UC Berkeley brings to the community. The campus is beautiful, the surrounding streets lined with restaurants of all kinds. Embracing the arts, CAL campus has multiple theater & performance spaces:  CAL Performances with world-class live, in-person music, dance, and theater productions held at Zellerbach Hall on the CAL campus or "the Greek Theatre" (William Randolph Hearst Greek Theatre) - an 8500 seat outdoor ampitheater on the CAL Berkeley Campus which is perfect for taking in a concert. Off-campus, Berkeley is lucky to have multiple live regional theater offerings including the Tony award winning Berkeley Repertory Theater ("Berkeley Rep" to locals) and the Aurora Theater

A Bicycle Plan was adopted by Berkeley City Council on May 2, 2017 with the purpose to make Berkeley a model bicycle-friendly city where bicycling is a safe, comfortable, and convenient form of transportation and recreation for people of all ages and abilities. 3032-3034 College Ave. is just a few blocks from one of the Berkeley Bicycle Map routes! And has helped this address earn it's classification as a "Bikers Paradise" with a 98/100 Bike score.

The East Bay has so much to offer, this neighborhood stands about amongst the best!  Truly a great place to call home!
