Glenview at a Glance
Located in the Oakland foothills, the Glenview is situated in the heart of the city. Its arterial road, Park Boulevard, connects Highways 13 and 580. Park Blvd. marks the path that fallen redwoods took to the lumberyards over a century ago, and along which ranchers drove their carts before the first crop of tract bungalows sprung up in the early 1900s.
In 2019, a century after the area went from wilderness to subdivision, the Glenview business district thrives. Fine restaurants, retail services, parks and friendly residents make this community a great place to call home! Diablo Magazine called it Oakland’s Gourmet Ghetto, given the unlikely find of several great restaurants in one suburban block. Bellanico, Marzano, Sushi Park and Paulista often cater to standing room crowds.
Glenview is highly desirable for the walk-ability to shops, dining and coffee; it’s proximity to both 580 and Highway 13 and casual car-pool to San Francisco. The V line bus that stops on Park Blvd and zips you non-stop to SF! The V line is comfortable and is equipped with wifi.
The profile of residents in Glenview is diverse. Senior homeowners, professional singles, couples, young families, and San Francisco transplants. Buyers who seek homes with a yard, but who don’t want to give up the “walk to” aspect find the perfect mix in this neighborhood.
Glenview’s ideal proximity in the Oakland Hills affords its residents optimum East Bay weather conditions with lots of sunshine and little fog. Those who are downsizing from a larger home are taking advantage of the benefit of a ‘walking neighborhood’ without the Rockridge price points. There is a binding sense of community and pride of place in Glenview, demonstrated by a strong neighborhood association, popular Yahoo group (Glenfriends) and annual block parties.
Glenview has several churches and a synagogue. Glenview Elementary and Edna Brewer Middle School are highly rated and boast top scores in the Oakland Unified School District. Glenview Elementary is in the process of a complete renovation and is due reopen again in the Fall of 2020. Students are currently attending classes in Emeryville, while the school is under construction.
