Floor Plans


Perched above the city and offering some of the most sweeping panoramic views in the entire Bay Area, the quiet, residential North Berkeley Hills neighborhood offers peace and solitude not far from the hustle and bustle of the city’s more urban areas. Homes in the neighborhood are built in a variety of styles and feature manicured lawns and lushly landscape gardens. Some homes are hidden from the road by large trees, while others offer views of the San Francisco and Oakland skylines, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, and Mount Tamalpais. North Berkeley Hills backs up against Tilden Regional Park, which offers numerous opportunities for outdoor recreation all year long. Some residents in the southern part of North Berkeley Hills are within walking distance from the thriving retail district on Solano Avenue, though those who live at higher elevations will likely need to drive to most places. Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District bus lines that serve the neighborhood drop residents at the Downtown Berkeley BART station for a quick commute to downtown San Francisco.
