Lovely original detail endures in this cozy and charming 1903 Elmwood Craftsman. Barbecue in your Private little Garden of Eden or throw a frisbee directly across the street at Willard Park with it's sprawling lawn and old growth trees. A short trip in the neighborhood for coffee and baked goods is a nice morning ritual. Night life might include events, movies, and music at the nearby Greek, Julia Morgan, Elmwood, and Zellerbach Theaters, or dinner in the Elmwood Business District. It's a quick trip to nature at Claremont or Strawberry Canyons. Easy south side access to freeways…not that you'll ever want to leave.

Beating in the heart of Cal Berkeley’s South Campus region is the quaint neighborhood that locals call “The Elmwood.” The enclave’s history parallels that of many communities in the Bay Area that sprung up following the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, when rebuilding efforts gave life to the streetcar suburb as part of the 1900s housing boom.


Stretching along College and Ashby Avenues, you’ll find many Elmwood hotspots:



Rich with artistic inspiration, Elmwood is also the resident nesting spot of celebrated author, Michael Chabon and fellow writer wife, Ayelet Waldman. Chabon was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2001 and frequently references Elmwood's beautiful characteristics in his work.


Architecturally interesting with its abundance of brown-shingled craftsman houses and tree-lined streets, Elmwood’s quaint, convenient, and family-friendly lifestyle make it an irresistible East Bay community.
