Maxwell Park Homes For Sale

The quiet, peaceful streets of Maxwell Park are made for walking—whether it be dog-walks, an early morning run, getting out for some afternoon sun with kids and strollers, or taking in the cool, evening air on a late-night walk that feels safe. This neighborhood is ideally located in the foothills of Oakland, and is noted for fostering a close-knit community amongst its mostly middle-class professional residents, and for being nearly crime-free relative to its local, urban counterparts.

The Maxwell Park Real Estate Market

Maxwell Park is filled with historic, lovely old homes—unique real estate, and finely detailed, warm but not-necessarily luxurious homes with a ton of personality are the norm. So much so, that some residents say no street addresses are necessary for a local to find their way around, as the descriptions of each property are so idiosyncratic and distinctive.

Many homes for sale in this neighborhood feature elegant touches such as original hardwood flooring, and beautiful landscaping. Mid-century bungalows are a prominent type of architecture for the area, and this neighborhood is home to several charming styles of these cozy dwellings. Many of the homes in the neighborhood have panoramic views of the Oakland hills to the north, and towards Alameda and the San Francisco Bay to the west.

Where is the Maxwell Park Neighborhood Located?

The area is named after its developer, John P. Maxwell. The original development area was bounded by 55th Avenue, Trask Street, Monticello Avenue and Camden Street, and the main developers were the same as for many of the much sought-after, upscale homes in nearby City of Piedmont.

The modern geographical borders for Maxwell Park are: MacArthur Boulevard, High Street, Trask Street, Foothill Boulevard, and 55th Avenue. Maxwell Park is adjacent to Mills College, I-580, Brookdale Park, and the neighborhood of Fairfax. When Maxwell Park was first built, the nearby streetcar transportation and temperate, healthy climate were big selling points. It is in East Oakland's famed "warm belt".

In the 60s, the old streetcars were replaced by AC Transit buses, and Lines 47 and 14 still service the neighborhood to and from the Fruitvale BART station, along with many other public transport lines that run along MacArthur. Most residents who commute to the city from this neighborhood choose to use public transportation to get to work, because the stations and stops are so walkable, and conveniently located.Whether it be the nearby Dimond District or the Laurel District neighborhoods, shops and services are just a few minutes away. 

Things to do Near Maxwell Park

Part of what makes Maxwell Park feel so quiet and safe is its almost suburban feel, with no real services or businesses within the neighborhood.

For amenities, the bordering Laurel neighborhood offers a major retail strip along MacArthur Blvd between High Street and 35th Avenue. The Laurel is home to the annual Laurel Street Fair, a local favorite during the summer with an old-fashioned wooden dance floor welcoming enthusiastic dancing to Salsa music, and vendors of every conceivable type of food, including African, soul food, Asian cuisine, authentic Mexican, fried chicken, and fish, and BBQ.

Though neither Maxwell Park or the Laurel are known for their nightlife, recent times have brought increased new business to the Laurel. Neighborhood favorites such as The Food Mill have been joined by many new cafes and bistros. Newer bars like Lounge 3411 and the Laurel Lounge offer neighborhood evening options for the 30-something demographic.

Maxwell Park School

Due to OUSD school closures in recent years, Maxwell Park is served mainly by public schools in the surrounding neighborhoods.

There are three OUSD elementary schools, and one middle school within the district. A private option within the district is the Urban Montessori Charter School. High school students would attend Skyline or Fremont High. There is also a private school available within nearby Mills College.
