Crocker Highlands

Crocker Highlands is a neighborhood of traditional homes with varying architectures of English, Spanish, Mediterranean, Normandy, and Swiss Chalet built mostly from 1917-1935. This neighborhood is very friendly and thrives on its tight knit community. The sidewalks with old fashioned street lamps keeps neighbors out and about throughout the day and evening adding to the overall warmth of Crocker. You will not find outdoor electrical wires as they went underground in 1993. 

Crocker Highlands has the easiest access to the 580 freeway which gets you into San Francisco and downtown Oakland faster than the other Hills communities. It also lies next to Piedmont and it is difficult to see where one city ends and the other begins. 

Many residents belong to the Lakeshore Homes Association, which is the second oldest homeowners association West of the Mississippi formed in 1917. The area was well thought out and planned by developer, Walter Leimert who hired the top landscape architects of the day, the Olmsted Brothers of Boston, who planted all of the lush vegetation and planned community parks seen throughout the neighborhood. Residents of Crocker Highlands also enjoy the proximity to urban amenities and public transportation.

Oakmore

Oakmore is a neighborhood in East Oakland, adjacent to Leimert Boulevard above Diamond Park. Designed in the 20′s as a model modern community, most lots were zoned for single family residences with some in the central section zoned for multi-family and commercial use. The neighborhood went on to include houses designed by several of the leading architects of the period, including Miller & Warnecke, Chester H. Treichel, and Guy Brown.

The architectural styles range from Monterey Colonial to Mediterranean, Rustic Tudor and Spanish. The Walter H. Leimert Company laid out the subdivision with wide paved streets and ample sidewalks. Particular care was taken in plotting the property. Lots were apportioned on the basis of beauty and the contours of the property and natural features.

The Leimert Bridge was designed in 1926, which connected Oakmore to Park Boulevard and allowed for vehicle traffic, Park Boulevard Streetcars, and pedestrians. Oakmore residents enjoy the Homes Association which is a community of Oakmore neighbors committed to promoting and enhancing safety, beautification, community, and property values in their neighborhood.

Temescal

Just off of the 24 freeway in North Oakland sits Temescal, one of the city’s oldest and most storied neighborhoods. It began as a separate village, a stop along the railway line that ran up Telegraph Avenue from downtown Oakland to Berkeley. 51st Street, more or less, provides the northern border, and 40th Street the southern. After decades of recovering from the construction of the freeway, Temescal is experiencing a revival of fortune. It now exists as one of Oakland’s hippest neighborhoods home to fashionable shopping and dining along Telegraph Avenue. Temescal Alley is the place to be on most weekend days. There you’ll find everything from locally made jewelry, gourmet doughnuts and a traditional barber shop serving up straight razor shaves.

Many single-family homes here are 1920s bungalows that, while modest from the outside, are packed inside with architectural details, such as built-ins, moldings, wainscoting, and window seats.

The MacArthur BART station is eight blocks away, and the Rockridge station is 10 blocks. The 51st Street entrance to 24 is central, making the commute toward the city and the tunnel easy.
