Crocker Highlands

Crocker Highlands, once known for reliance on Key Line of electric trains, offers elegant examples of Tudor, Spanish, Arts and Crafts, Beaux Arts, and Art Deco period homes dating back to the 1920s. Notable homes were designed by architects Julia Morgan and Bernard Maybeck. Tree-lined streets and authentic street lamps from the 1920s are laid out along the rolling hills and frame spacious, manicured lawns in a neighborhood reminiscent of English garden suburbs. Crocker Highlands is conveniently located near Interstate 580, the East Bay's famous 'casual carpool' to SF, and AC Transit bus lines. Residents can access parks, shops, and restaurants in the nearby Lakeshore, Grand Lake, and Glenview neighborhoods.
