Quintessential Modern Craftsman

Tucked down a quaint Rockridge street this spacious four bedroom three bath home features modern luxury interiors completely re-imagined and rebuilt by one of the Bay Area’s best design/build teams: Next Level Architecture.

As is typical of Next Level’s designs, high ceilings and an expansive entry hall set the tone for this deluxe home which includes thoughtful touches and impressive spaces combined with seamless indoor-outdoor connections.  With premium quality finishes and custom made solid wood windows and doors, these signature design elements are made exclusively by local artisan Ghanbari design. Additionally an accordion style sliding door opens out to the sublime sunny patio overlooking the lawn, planting beds and bonus casita in the garden. With a commitment to quality, the kitchen is a marvel with deluxe appliances, wall of windows with garden pass-through and oversized center island, all constructed of solid woods. The living area and dining areas are all part of this lovely space while maintaining their own sense of place. 

Up the stairs, with its modern sculpted iron railing, are four bedrooms including an impressive master suite. With its striking bay window, recessed lighting and large walk-in closet, the bedroom leads to a private spa inspired bath. The exceptional finishes include a free standing deep soaking tub, walk-in rain shower and integrated dual sink vanity. On this level is also three bedrooms, a well appointed sweet bath plus a laundry room. The garage, with whisper quiet auto door opener and interior access, completes the home. 

What can be said about the location except that it does not get much better.  Rockridge has become the East Bay’s most sought after neighborhood with BART, fine dining, shopping, night life and great schools. Welcome home.

Prior to the mid-1800s, Oakland was largely a wild and undeveloped area. Much of what later would become known as Rockridge was also vacant land until the 1860s. That’s when a number of families from the east coast settled in the area. Among them was the Livermores, a New England family that had relocated west some two decades earlier and made their fortune developing lumber mills and dams around Folsom. With their wealth, the family scooped up large tracts of land in Rockridge, eventually establishing this area as a separate subdivision from Oakland.

Who gave the city its name? That credit goes to Horatio P. Livermore’s wife who, in a nod to an immense rock the family affectionately referred to as, ‘Big Rock,’ decided the area should be called Rockridge.

By the way, although most of Mrs. Livermore’s beloved Big Rock has been blasted away, you can still find portions of it near Glenbrook and Bowling Drives.

In a Word


Living Here

Considered by many to be the model of transportation integration, the centrally located Rockridge BART station blends retail, commercial, and residential interests into one seamless, workable neighborhood. What’s more, with trains traveling from Rockridge to Montgomery Station in San Francisco roughly every twenty minutes, living here and working in the City makes for an easy commute.


Home to over 80 restaurants, cafes, retail stores, and Market Hall’s assortment of gourmet food vendors is College Avenue, Rockridge’s eclectic thoroughfare.

Why Rockridge?

In a word, variety. While some areas of Rockridge consist of large homes that were built between the 1920s and the 1950s, others feature smaller bungalows and cottages. All of which means that, no matter your preference, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for here.
