The manicured gardens and stately homes of the Claremont define this upscale neighborhood as much as the grand 19th century hotel that gives this wooded, southeast corner of Berkeley its name.

Many of the homes have unparalleled views of the San Francisco Bay and skyline. Parks and hidden paths enhance the natural beauty of the surroundings. The homes and mansions of the Claremont area include Prairie styles, shingled cottages, Italian villas, Spanish period revivals, and many contemporary designs.

Some of the contemporary homes situated high in the hills attest to the draw of this area. Despite the fire of 1991 that destroyed many of the hillside homes, most residents chose to rebuild and reclaim their dreams, embodied in architectural gems that maximize the dramatic setting.
