Straddled between Berkeley's Claremont neighborhood, and Oakland's Rockridge, the historic Elmwood district is a bustling vibrant area, with much to do and see. Elmwood House is a 1908 prominent landmark that is located in a quiet and friendly residential Cul-de-sac, yet is ideally only two blocks from the hub of College and Telegraph Avenues. Within in the immediate area are the Claremont Resort & Spa, Berkeley Tennis Club & Pools, CAL Recreation Center, many parks, great trails, golf, fine dining, ethnic restaurants, bookstores, theater, CAL Performances, and UC Berkeley's university campus. With a WalkScore of 97, and only ten blocks to BART, day-trips to San Francisco and beyond are easy. Elmwood House is one of Berkeley's grand old dames, an original period residence with wonderful architectural detail.

I am originally from England and Ireland and came to the bay area in the 80's. I have lived in many bay area cities, and my favorite places are Marin county and Berkeley. I presently live in Berkley and some of the time in Marin, and work as a real estate broker with Sotheby's International Realty.
This is a beautiful Edwardian home with lots of character and original architectural detail, set among other period homes, in a quiet tree-lined residential neighborhood, yet only a couple of blocks from the hub of the historic Elmwood district, and the Claremont and Rockridge neighborhoods. BART is just 10 blocks away for easy access to San Francisco and beyond.
