Forestland Homes For Sale

Oakland's Forestland Neighborhood is, by definition, a neighborhood among trees, and it most certainly fits that description.  Located high in the hills above Oakland, it, in company with the adjacent Montclair and Merriewood neighborhoods create the illusion of Tahoe in the city. 


Forestland Real Estate

Its top boundary runs along scenic Grizzly Peak and Skyline Boulevards, and the neighborhood itself is closest to the amazing outdoor beauty of Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve, and Huckleberry Regional Preserve, which means that nature is right outside the window of these homes. Add the nearby Lake Temescal Regional Reserve just down the hill, and those who want to enjoy the outdoor life have an outstanding variety of activities to choose from, whether it be hiking, picnicking, jogging or biking.

For those who enjoy shopping and fine dining, the stores, boutique shops, and fine restaurants in nearby Rockridge, Elmwood, and Montclair will fit their needs. 

All these hillside neighborhoods are bordered in one form or another by Highways 13 and 24 which allow immediate access to downtown Oakland, and the bridge to San Francisco to the west, and just over the hills to the east, to Orinda, Lafayette, and Contra Costa County.  So whether your trip is work related, or just a pleasure trip, you are centrally located to do either one quickly.
