Neighborhood Gallery

1117 The Alameda

Just a block to the north lies Solano Avenue and the neighborhood of Thousand Oaks

Tucked in between the Berkeley Hills, Kensington, and the vibrant Solano Avenue shopping district, Berkeley’s Thousand Oaks neighborhood is a family-friendly enclave that boasts a great suburban feel close to the big city. 

Public transportation in Thousand Oaks is great. Several Alameda-Contra Costa Transit transbay buses whisk commuters from Solano Avenue to San Francisco. Residents in Thousand Oaks have two BART stations to choose from: both the El Cerrito Plaza and North Berkeley BART stations are just a few miles away. Two supermarkets, many beloved local shops and favorite restaurants beckon shoppers and diners, as does the annual September Solano Stroll.

Immediately to the west lies Northbrae

Centered on Hopkins Street at the foot of the Berkeley Hills, this quiet, relaxed residential community consists of charming bungalows, California Craftsman homes, and English Tudors.

Nearby green spaces include three-acre Cedar-Rose Park and Terrace Park. For those working on home horticulture projects, Berkeley Horticultural Nursery on McGee Avenue and Westbrae Nursery on Gilman Street offer advice, seeds, plants, and gardening tools.
Northbrae’s two-block long retail district may be small, but it is crammed with gourmet-food purveyors. It's possible to shop here like a European, going from store to store, purchasing everything you need for the week's dinner. Monterey Market (an institution for more than 50 years), Monterey Fish Market, Magnani Poultry, and Hopkins Street Bakery make Northbrae into a mecca for food lovers. Outdoor cafe Espresso Roma offers the opportunity to enjoy a latte in the glorious weather.

Northbrae is within walking distance to the North Berkeley BART and the North Branch of the Berkeley Public Library. Designed by noted Bay Area architect Julia Morgan in the early 20th century, the latter building is one of the most stunning civic structures in Berkeley.

And just south and east, Upper Shattuck Avenue and the Gourmet Gulch

From Chez Panisse to Epicurious Garden, The Cheeseboard Collective to Saul's Deli, Upper Shattuck Avenue - sometimes called Shattuck and Vine - offers restaurants for every palate, plus Safeway, Andronicos Community Market, CVS, and the original Peet's Coffee...
