The close-knit town of Glenview is one of the treasures of the East Bay and has been one of Oakland’s most popular neighborhoods for decades. Old fashioned mom and pop shops, grassy parks, tree-lined streets, colorful bungalows, open-minded neighbors, a strong sense of community, and convenient freeway access make it a highly desirable place to live.
The homes here are small but charming Craftsman and California bungalows built during 20s and 30s. Many of these homes have been lovingly restored and feature updated kitchens and baths, formal dining rooms with built-ins, living rooms with tiled fireplaces, polished oak and fir floors, redwood decks, brick patios and flowering gardens.
Nestled between the towns of Oakmoor, Piedmont and Trestle Glen, Glenwood enjoy an abundance of surrounding stores and services including the quaint shops of nearby Montclair village. Right in their own backyard is upper Park Boulevard is small but charming commercial district. Here, a Saturday afternoon of errands may include popping into the an old-fashioned hardware store, catching up on neighborhood news with local dry cleaner and chatting with neighbors at the Mexican cantina.
Residents have super fast on-and-off access to highways 13 and 580 to downtown Oakland. It’s also served by BART and AC Transit.
