Neighborhood Gallery

5169 Golden Gate Avenue

Upper Rockridge is a neighborhood of older, Mediterranean-style estates, midcentury modern homes, contemporary houses, and new, custom showplaces. Large lawns, terraced gardens, stunning views of the bay and San Francisco skyline, and roads that follow the rolling hills all define this affluent Oakland community. 

A local grocery, the Village Market, serves the neighborhood, while more extensive shopping and dining options await in nearby Rockridge, where residents can commute to San Francisco via the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station.
