Out and About in Glenview & Crocker Highlands
Glenview is a wonderful neighborhood located at the foot of the Oakland Hills, bordered by the town of Piedmont, and the Crocker Highlands, Montclair, and Oakmore neighborhoods of Oakland. Glenview features predominantly single-family homes, mostly small in scale but FILLED with character. Most of the homes in Glenview are vintage bungalows from the 1920’s and 1930’s. Many have been lovingly restored with great attention given to hardwood floors, gardens and landscaping, and updated, modern kitchens.
All homes in Oakland’s Glenview Neighborhood are but a short walk from long-and-skinny Dimond Park, which runs along the southeastern edge of Glenview.
