Southern Oakland Hills

When you visit the neighborhoods of the Southern Oakland Hills, you'll ask "Is this Oakland?"

This area has become increasingly desirable over the past few years. South of Montclair, running along the Oakland Hills, these laid-back neighborhoods back up against fabulous recreational destinations like Redwood Regional Park and Joaquin Miller Park.

Highlighting the area's wooded surroundings, many of the homes are built into the hillside and feature stellar views and lots. You will find a mixture of ranchers, mid-century and modern homes with the occasional horse stable in the back yard. There is easy access to more metropolitan areas of the East Bay via Highway 13, and Montclair, Woodminster and Redwood Heights provide commercial districts for all important amenities.
