In 1974 I moved to Berkeley to work as a Chemical Engineer for Chevron Research.
On New Years’ Day 1975 I took a walk in the Berkeley Hills … wearing a T-shirt (unheard of in New York in January!), and felt the warm sun, the fragrance of flowers, saw the spectacular bay in winter light, and knew I’d found my home.
|And thus, we named our site BERKELEYHOMES
and created the BerkeleyHomes.com web site!
Berkeley is an wonderful place to live – amazing restaurants (our favorites are small neighborhood places) and food, farmers’ markets, festivals, bookstores, libraries, movies, theaters and performance spaces.
And the weather? It rarely gets too hot … or cold … and the humidity is always relatively low.
We have a diverse collection of neighborhoods – The Berkeley Hills has spectacular views, residential Elmwood/Claremont and North Berkeley have large stately homes and great restaurants, Thousand Oaks, where we have lived for the past 30+ years, is home to amazing rock formations. Nearby Northbrae was named one of the “Great Neighborhoods in America”.
Here is a detailed neighborhood list from Wikipedia
So … visit the wonderful neighborhoods and see what each has to offer you!
