Elmwood Homes For Sale

For a small neighborhood, Berkeley's  Elmwood neighborhood packs quite a punch.  Centered just south of the University of California campus, its core can be found at the intersection of College and Ashby streets.  Its commercial district is one of the oldest in Berkeley. Famous for outstanding restaurants, numerous popular Italian and Chinese spots have made this location one of the "must see" sites in the area.  If that cuisine doesn't appeal, there is still Japanese, Mexican, and Indian to choose from, in addition to coffee shops of every description.  Retail stores offer numerous childrens' stores, health and beauty shops, gift and books stores, and a unique pet store catering just to birds!  

Elmwood Real Estate in Berkeley

The homes in the surrounding neighborhood are often multistory, and reflect Brown Shingle, Arts and Crafts and Colonial Revival styles.  Many apartment buildings of classic Spanish style and a variety of stucco styles meet the needs of the many students who attend the nearby University Of California. This architectural theme is carried through in the nearby Claremont neighborhood of Oakland. Long established trees and plants of every size and color decorate the front yards of the quiet back streets.  Everything about the neighborhood is close, but not crowded in this active and prosperous area.[ Back To Top of Elmwood page]
