Posts Tagged ‘Oakmore’

When new buyers ask about areas of Oakland many do not know about the Upper Oakmore, or Oakmore Highlands as it was originally named. My eyes always light up when talking about this lovely part of Oakland!

To start with the terrain is gorgeous, rolling hills studded with mature Oaks, and then there are the stunning Bay views as you crest the top of some streets and swoop down others.

All this and a wonderful selection of vintage homes, some estate size with large parcels of land. It’s perfect neighborhood walking (just hug the roadside on the curves) and there are flights of public steps and access to the Sausal Creek trail when you need a shady spot!

My new listing  at 2008 Bywood Drive is a lovely warm home with beautiful light and superb outlooks from all the rooms. The location feels exceptionally private with little intrusion from the neighboring homes.

Just minutes from both Montclair Village and the Glenview shopping districts, and  close to great schools and commute access. The neighborhood community is an active one with listserve and a legendary turnout for Halloween trick or treating!

~from the marketing materials of the Walter H. Leimert Company, c. 1926.
“Here is the natural beauty of the wooded hill slope, the sunny plateau, the pleasant glen. Below is the City of Oakland spread out fan-like, and to the west, the glorious panorama of San Francisco Bay . And yet, there is no sacrifice of convenience. Particular care has been taken in the plotting of the property. The lots have been apportioned more on the basis of beauty than upon the arbitrary basis of so many square feet constituting a homesite. In every instance, the homesite’s have been apportioned in conformity with the contours of the property and the natural features. It is in this new residential park that the elements of a desirable homesite find superior and practical expression.”
