Rockridge a thriving upscale community with a decidedly urban twist is a nationally recognized model of a “sustainable neighborhood district.” Stately turn-of-the-century Craftsmen mingle with Victorians and California Mediterraneans, while many ultra-modern homes built after the 1991 fire line the hillsides up to Highway 13.
Rockridge borders (approximately) Alcatraz Avenue on the north to Broadway Terrace on the south anchored by the prestigious Claremont Golf and Country Club, and west from Telegraph Avenue to Highway 13.
The community is intersected and served by a vibrant stretch of College Avenue. Along this bustling corridor are numerous acclaimed restaurants, a vast array of retail shops, professional offices and personal services. Among the notable draws are Ver Brugge’s for meats and seafood, Katrina Rozelle and La Farine bakeries, as well as Market Hall, a European inspired open-air market. The best way to experience Rockridge’s Craftsmen charm, wonderful shops, and urban character is by foot.
It is served by a BART station, public transportation, and easy access to all the major freeway exchanges.
