I don’t want to over-complicate this, but when people talk about the Oakland, CA district of Montclair, they are really talking about six different micro-neighborhoods. It took a couple of years living in Montclair for me to finally figure out what the differences were, but I finally got it, I think. Why does it matter? Well, practically speaking, it doesn’t. Montclair is a wonderful little oasis in the Oakland Hills. It is a true village atmosphere and we all enjoy the centrally located park, a weekly Sunday Farmer’s Market, a storybook library, and fantastic elementary schools. Usually, people don’t even reference which neighborhood in Montclair they live in. So, why bring up the differentiation here?

Well, if you are interested in living in this magical little spot, knowing the differences between the neighborhoods could help you find the right house for you or your client. Each neighborhood has its own feel and character and historically, different real estate prices.

Many of the original summer cottages built in the 1920s are still found in Merriwood, though the northern half was mainly rebuilt after the fire. Heavily wooded with winding roads, it feels like a remote mountain retreat, but in just five minutes you are in the Village or on the freeway. Homes here sell for a little less per square foot than Glen Highlands. Children attend Thornhill Elementary.
