Large modern homes mingle with classic styles and gated mansions. The streets wind languorously up into the hills, wide enough to create a balance of sun and shade from the broad-leafed trees.
A grand 19th century hotel gives this wooded neighborhood its name. You can find the Claremont easily by the grand white edifices of the Claremont Spa that rise from its hillside. The spa sits at the peak of a triangle that gives the neighborhood its borders: Claremont Avenue on level ground, Tunnel Road up in the hills, and Highway 24 cutting diagonally.
Follow Claremont north; from the wide thoroughfare of the flatlands, it narrows and winds up into the hills of the Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve, with trails for hiking, biking, and walking your dog.
The slantwise intersection of Claremont and College avenues hosts a Safeway that anchors a major retail shopping complex. In fact, the whole intersection is a potpourri of boutiques, services, and coffeehouses that draw both north Oakland and south Berkeley residents on the weekends.
Highway 24 cuts across Claremont Avenue, giving easy access to the East Bay in all directions. You’re also just a few blocks from the Rockridge BART station.
