About Kathleen Kelly
Owned by widow with two grown children. We moved here when our oldest child was in kindergarten, and our kids went through the local grade and high schools. It's a great neighborhood! I live here most of the year, and only rent this out when I'm traveling. (PS. that picture of me is from a house designed by Gaudi in Barcelona, so don't think that's what you're getting when you check in here!)
Kathleen Kelly purchased this House in 1994
Why Kathleen Kelly chose Upper Rockridge
Who doesn't love the San Francisco Bay Area? A little known secret is that the weather is much better in Oakland than in SF, because it is sunnier and warmer, but not hot like in the more suburban areas.
What makes this House unique
Enjoy eating or relaxing in the newly renovated inside rooms or outside on the new patio. Take a walk in the neighborhood and see the views of the Oakland and Berkeley hills, or turn the other direction and see the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges.

Perfect in Every Way
Kathleen was prompt, concise, and incredibly generous. My husband and our daughter's family of 4 (granddaughters 3 and 7yrs old) shared the house for a Thanksgiving visit. Everything was as she had said it would be, spotlessly clean, well appointed, and ready for guests. Even the refrigerator had been cleared so we could unpack our foods. The house is totally charming with lovely oak Victorian furnishings and wonderfully comfortable sofas and beds. Our granddaughters loved all the travel mementos and spacious living room for yoga and dancing. The men were thrilled to see and hear Sonos. Our only regret was inclement weather...we couldn't enjoy all the outdoor space due to rain. We also appreciated that there were lots of signs saying "help yourself" to coffee, spices, and pantry items. Best of all, we could see our Oakland family's home from the dining room window. The location was perfect and we hope we'll be able to enjoy Kathleen's hospitality in the future. Thank you for making it such an easy and pleasurable Thanksgiving.

We were in town for a wedding, and this was the perfect home for our little group. Beautiful space, quiet too. The bride decorated her wedding cake in our kitchen the morning of the wedding. We enjoyed the patio, and the deck too. Thank you so much!
