Sophisticated Traditional

Oakland's Upper Rockridge


About this home's










Upper Rockridge, one of the Crown Jewel neighborhoods of Oakland offers its residents a centralized location, good schools, views and access to the premier business areas of the Montclair Village, Rockridge and Berkeley’s Elmwood. 

Proctor Ave runs the ridge and offers some of the best Westerly facing views of the Bay, San Francisco, Bridges and Marin’s Mt. Tam.  Perched perfectly on the lot, the homes sun exposure and its many windows filled with the brilliant blue sky strike the perfect balance of privacy, outlooks and openness.  

One step in from the street and you enter into a sophisticated home that maintains its traditional flare.  The home is truly an Entertainers delight.  The living room’s French-doors open to a spacious deck overlooking the rear yard/garden and the sun-filled views beyond.  There is a formal dining room adjacent to the fully updated eat-in kitchen that includes honed-stone counters, a Viking range and custom cabinetry that is sure to please even the most discerning chefs out there.  The upstairs level offers 3 full bedrooms, one of which is the primary on-suite with big and bright views of the Bay and the San Francisco skyline.  The lower level has the 4th bedroom (staged as an office), another full bathroom, a second laundry area, a huge dry storage room and a spacious bonus living room.  French doors open out to the rear patio and level grassy yard and garden.  

Tastefully updated and maintaining its 1928 flare, we think you’ll find the perfect combination of style, utility, sophistication and location all rolled up into one amazing lifestyle.  The only finishing touch needed in this terrific environment is YOU!

Large lawns, terraced gardens, stunning views of the bay and San Francisco skyline, and roads that follow the rolling hills all define this affluent Oakland community.
A local grocery, the Village Market, serves the neighborhood, while more extensive shopping and dining options await in nearby Rockridge, where residents can commute to San Francisco via the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station.


Cross Alcatraz Avenue, which divides Oakland and Berkeley, and you’ll find yourself in Rockridge, one of Oakland's most desirable, charming, and convenient neighborhoods. Housing in Rockridge is a combination of charming bungalows, cottages, classic Arts and Crafts dwellings, and large brown-shingle houses. Its leafy streets are mainly residential. 
Rockridge offers an easy commute into San Francisco via the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station, as well as access to the University of California, Berkeley Campus. The 100-year-old, four-acre campus of the California College of Art and Crafts is nearby. Food-and-drink purveyors in Rockridge provide the best from around the world and local farms. Rockridge Market Hall, which takes its cue from the French Marché, offers numerous individual food and flower shops open to the sidewalk. Dozens of restaurants, cafes, and boutiques line bustling College Avenue, Rockridge's main drag.
