Nestled amongst the pine trees in the upper Oakland hills, the friendly neighborhoods of Montclair, Merriewood and Piedmont Pines maintain a refreshing and laid-back mountain atmosphere reminiscent of Mill Valley in Marin County. Winding streets dotted with trees and gardens lead to large homes hidden among mini-forests that look out over the distant Bay.
Home styles range from large Craftsman bungalows, shingled cottages and Prairie homes, to period revivals, ranch and split-level style homes from the '50s, '60s and '70s. The area's more modern homes found in parts of Merriwood and Montclair were built in the '90s and early 2000s.
Adding to its rural appeal, the Oakland Hills are tidy and very residential, yet close to many East Bay parks, offering endless hiking, biking and equestrian activities through which visitors can take in the beautiful wooded scenery.
