As one of the most iconic neighborhoods in the Bay Area, the Berkeley Hills offers a wide range of architectural styles, with many homes enjoying sweeping San Francisco Bay views positioned opposite the Golden Gate Bridge.
Set among large redwoods and peaceful winding streets, these beautiful homes were mostly built during the 1930’s through the 1960’s, although some closer further down the hill are from the teens and ‘20’s. You will see handsome Mediterranean, Tudor and traditional styles, along with mid-century modern architecture, perched above the storied University of California Berkeley campus. The Berkeley Hills area is generally defined as the area between Kensington to the north, Arlington and Euclid Avenues to the west, the Cal campus to the south and Tilden Park to the south.
Another major attraction of living in the Berkeley Hills is that so many vibrant shopping and entertainment districts are close by— as are the exciting performances offered by UC Berkeley and the lively theater district. A huge attraction, and within minutes, are the foodie havens of North Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto, Fourth Street, Solano Avenue and the multi-cultural, markets, restaurants and cafes of Northbrae, West Berkeley, Downtown and College Avenue.
