Where is it?


Our home is in the quiet neighborhood of Oak Glen/Glen Echo Creek, in Oakland - just across the bay from San Francisco. We are adjacent to the very trendy Piedmont Avenue district just north of Lake Merritt. It is a 15 minute walk to the BART train where we can go anywhere in the San Francisco Bay area by public transport, including the Oakland airport which is a 20 minute train ride away (SFO is 45 minutes away). San Francisco is a ten minute train ride under the bay from the closest station. Piedmont Avenue boasts an excellent market and restaurants including some of the best sushi in the Bay Area, taquerias, organic pizza, and fine dining (including the venerable Bay Wolf and Cesar - owned by the folks who trained at world famous Chez Panisse). The neighborhood also has taverns, a cinema, pharmacy, coffeehouses, a spa (with massage, saunas and outdoor hot tubs), local bakery, even a small library. We are within a 15 minute car ride to miles of hiking trails in the hills with redwoods and oak forest. Just outside our door is one of the only open creeks in Oakland with a park & many fine old oak trees. We are within walking distance to the Northlake/Grand Avenue area which has a fantastic farmer's market on Saturdays. Downtown Oakland offers many restaurants, nightclubs, theatres, a vibrant Chinatown area, and Jack London Square on the waterfront with one of the most famous Jazz clubs in the world - Yoshi's. We live in a family oriented area with many beautiful older homes.
