Internationally known for its cultural diversity, environmental sensitivity, and dynamic academic life, the leafy university town of Berkeley is a model California city that its residents are proud to call home.
Urban culture and the arts, innovative shops, and gourmet restaurants beautifully co-exist with charming homes, tree-lined neighborhoods, winding streets, lush parks, fragrant gardens and attractive walking paths.
With so much character and flavor, Berkeley's many distinct neighborhoods offer something for everyone, as does its range of architectural styles. Homebuyers can choose from stunning homes high in the hills, charming Victorians, Craftsman bungalows, stately older homes, wooded hillside retreats, and magnificent period revival homes. Much of Berkeley's real estate
is notable for its singular architectural styles, some of which were designed by famed architects Bernard Maybeck
, John Hudson Thomas
and Julia Morgan
In addition to the close proximity to the prestigious University of California
, Berkeley residents also enjoy convenient freeway access to San Francisco, Oakland, and the Silicon Valley. Berkeley is also served by three BART stations (Ashby, University, and North Berkeley), and the AC Transit bus system. Just minutes away, Tilden Regional Park
is comprised of 2,065 acres of open meadows and forests with spectacular views of the Bay Area. Within its boundaries are miles of splendid hiking and biking trails, a botanic garden, picnic areas, an 18-hole golf course, and a lake for swimming. Families especially enjoy the historic carousel, petting zoo, steam train, pony rides, and environmental education center.
Many of our agents call Berkeley home and, once you taste it for yourself, you will want to as well.
