Claremont Condos For Sale

The Claremont Neighborhood of Oakland and Berkeley is probably best know for the jewel in its crown--The Claremont Hotel.  Sitting atop a prominent hill, the hotel's views of the San Francisco Bay area are expansive.  Sharing these same views are the many homes above and around this landmark. Bright white, the hotel shines in the morning sun, and has attracted visitors from around the world.  When completed in 1915, a streetcar delivered guests right to its front door.  Over the years, writers, musicians, scientists and business leaders have made it their favorite lodging. 

Berekely's Condos in Claremont

The many beautiful homes in the area are surrounded by handsome oak, bay and eucalyptus trees, allowing residents a quiet back yard or deck retreat with views of the everchanging forest scenes.A few blocks below the hotel is the vital College and Claremont Avenue shopping scene.  Beginning at the nearby University of California in Berkeley, College Avenue extends all the way through the Rockridge area to Broadway in Oakland.  It offers every type of shopping experience, an extensive choice of restaurants, and two unique opportunities for entertainment. The first choice is the Julia Morgan Center for the Arts housed in a historic church designed by this famous architect, and the Elmwood Rialto Cinema movie theater, which is a trip into the past era of the afternoon matinee movie house.

A different style and approach to homes is directly south of the Claremont area.  The Hiller Highlands neighborhood is composed of open, modern homes designed to take in the stunning views that are everywhere, due to the fact that the area sits high atop hills that offer a completely unobstructed view of Oakland and the San Francisco Bay area.
