A Glenview Craftsman on the Crocker Highlands border! Starring the new eat-in kitchen you’ve been longing for: bright, roomy and deluxe with loads of cabinets. And it flows right out to a big sunny deck, lawn, and garden, under the massive ancient oak! Perfect for play, entertaining, growing veggies and watching the glorious sunsets. Don’t forget the figs, pears, and lemons!
The entry foyer flows into a light-filled living room with hardwood floors and a handsome fireplace featuring built-ins. The large traditional dining room with period hutch has hosted countless celebrations.
Enjoy the nicely updated bath and two generous bedrooms — one looking out to the deck and garden. Downstairs is a handy office/studio/bonus room with a separate entrance. The garage adds additional storage and has inside access.
Best of all is the friendly, welcoming neighborhood. So, sit a spell on the front porch and say howdy! Glenview shops, market and cafes are only three blocks away — and the direct SF commute bus is even closer. This is a wonderful “smart” home near the top schools. Welcome to Glenview on the Crocker Highlands border!
Situated in the Oakland foothills, Glenview is a small residential neighborhood full of are single-family bungalows and traditionally styled dwellings dating back to the 1920s and ‘30s.
Most of the businesses in Glenview are mom-and-pop shops and include a market and several salons. Highly rated restaurants such as Bellanico and Blackberry Bistro add some gourmet flair to the Park Boulevard business district, which offers great vistas of the bay. The Glenview Neighborhood Association and Glenfriends have adopted Park Boulevard, sponsoring the Park Boulevard Median Cleanup and Planting Day on the boulevard median.
Twelve-acre Dimond Park runs along Glenview's eastern side, with oak and redwood trees populating the green space. Amenities include picnic areas, playgrounds, and a swimming pool.
Crocker Highlands, once known for reliance on Key Line of electric trains, offers elegant examples of Tudor, Spanish, Arts and Crafts, Beaux Arts, and Art Deco period homes dating back to the 1920s. Notable homes were designed by architects Julia Morgan and Bernard Maybeck. Tree-lined streets and authentic street lamps from the 1920s are laid out along the rolling hills and frame spacious, manicured lawns in a neighborhood reminiscent of English garden suburbs.
Crocker Highlands is conveniently located near Interstate 580, and AC Transit bus lines serve the neighborhood. Residents can access parks, shops, and restaurants in the nearby Lakeshore, Grand Lake, and Glenview neighborhoods.
