Merriewood's Homes For Sale


The central theme of all the homes here is nature.  Whether you are enjoying their gardens, porches, decks, or backyards, the goal is to settle comfortably among the quiet trees that surround the neighborhood.  The style of the homes here varies as the neighborhood has grown. Starting from a simple cottage style, through ranch, Mediterranean or Spanish or creatively modern, each is unique.  Many have dramatic views of the city below, or hills and canyons on either side. 

It is located just moments from the delightful shopping stores, restaurants and markets of Rockridge and Montclair Village and Elmwood.  Families have immediate access to all types of outdoor activities.  Starting with the closest, the North Oakland Regional Sports Center, then on to Tilden Park, Lake Temescal Regional Recreation Area, and Sibley Volcanic Regional Park, to name but a few. 

Lastly, the proximity of Highways 13 and 24 give residents immediate access to Orinda and the rest of Contra County, or downtown Oakland and San Francisco to the west.  Berkeley is just over the hill.
