The Claremont district – including the Uplands - is a mature, gracious neighborhood with many beautiful homes sited along quiet tree-lined streets. Bordered by the Elmwood and Rockridge districts, UC Berkeley and the iconic Claremont Hotel and Resort, this coveted community offers some of the Bay Area’s most desirable residences. Head for the hills to Claremont Hills to find mostly newer (built after the Oakland fire), elegant and larger homes, many with the most spectacular views in the East Bay. Claremont’s central location is a big plus, with excellent shopping and restaurants in popular Oakland and Berkeley neighborhoods in less than a 15 minute drive. Easy freeway access for commuters to San Francisco and a short distance to Ashby and Rockridge BART stations for public transportation throughout the Bay Area, including Oakland and San Francisco airports.
