1722 Excelsior Avenue
This home is fantastically located smack in the middle of two of Oakland's most enjoyable and dynamic neighborhoods – Glenview & the Dimond District.
Situated in the Oakland foothills, Glenview is a small residential neighborhood with single-family bungalows and traditionally styled dwellings dating back to the 1920s and ‘30s. Most of the businesses in Glenview are mom-and-pop shops and include a market and several salons. Highly rated restaurants such as Bellanico, Marzano, Park Burger and Paulista add some foodie flair to the Park Boulevard business district. Commuters appreciate easy access to the V-line Transbay Express bus service to San Francisco.
Twelve-acre Dimond Park runs along Glenview's eastern side, with oak and redwood trees populating the green space. Amenities include picnic areas, playgrounds, tennis courts, and a swimming pool.
The intersection of MacArthur Boulevard and Fruitvale Avenue is the heart of Oakland's Dimond neighborhood. The walkable neighborhood boasts two major grocery stores, a pharmacy, public library, numerous mom-and-pop businesses, and the newest location of the Grand Lake Kitchen. A neighborhood highlight is the annual Oaktoberfest celebration – on October 5th & 6th this year.
Interstate 580 forms the neighborhood's southern border, a convenient perk for commuters. Those who prefer public transportation can use AC Transit's NL or NX bus lines to downtown San Francisco on both weekdays and weekends, as well as other AC Transit routes.
The terrific location straddling both of these wonderful Oakland neighborhoods is a uniquely appealing feature of this home.
