Artfully set into the Claremont Hills upslope, this refined 2008 Craftsman style home features a rare combination of bay and city vistas and lush, easily accessible gardens. All three floors offer sweeping views across treetops and rooftops to the cities, bridges, hills and waters of San Francisco Bay.

Anchored by a central fireplace, the broad, open living and dining rooms share panoramic views, exceptional light and flow, and a charming sunset balcony. Off the versatile sitting room and handsome chef’s kitchen, wide doors lead to the intimate rear patio, upper lawn and leafy upper terrace. Upstairs are the serene master retreat, with glorious views and sumptuous bathroom, two more bedrooms and a hall bathroom.

Neighborhood

The Claremont neighborhood straddles the Berkeley and Oakland borders and features lush landscaping, curving streets that hug the canyon hills, and open space. Homes on the leafy side streets provide old-fashioned Berkeley elegance, with turn-of-the-century brown shingles, revivals, prairie-, custom contemporary-, and Tudor-styled structures offering residents a place to call home within the landscaped confines. 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.
