Upper Rockridge is a neighborhood of older Mediterranean-style estates, mid-century modern, and new, custom showplaces built to the latest LEED standards. Large, well-kept lawns, sunny welcoming terraced gardens, stunning views of the bay and San Francisco skyline, friendly sidewalks, roads that gently follow the rolling hills, all define this community. A local grocery, the Village Market, serves Upper Rockridge, along with the shops and restaurants a 20-minute walk away on College Avenue in Rockridge.
Schools here are excellent. Elementary schools include Anthony Chabot Elementary, Kaiser Elementary, and Hillcrest Elementary. Private schools in the neighborhood include K-5 Aurora School, K-8 Bentley School, and 9-12 College Preparatory High School.
