About Rockridge, Oakland Real Estate

North Oakland is a beautiful residential neighborhood in the city of Oakland, California. As with the rest of Oakland, there is no shortage of hip restaurants, lively bars, and comfortable coffee shops to choose from inside this exciting community. Commuting is convenient, with easy access to BART, buses, and the bridge to nearby San Francisco. High property values, a great mix of architectural styles like Craftsman and brown-shingle properties, and a culturally-vibrant atmosphere make North Oakland a highly sought-after destination for young professionals, families, and retirees.

North Oakland also boasts Rockridge, a residential neighborhood tucked against the base of the Oakland Hills. Located east of Telegraph Avenue, Rockridge is one of the most coveted communities in the East Bay, largely in part due to its tree-lined streets and historic architecture.
