Crocker Highlands is a jewel neighborhood in Oakland near Lake Merritt. Wide streets, wide sidewalks, massive oak trees, and antique-style street lamps, frame classical housing stock which ranges from Arts-and-Crafts architecture to traditional, Colonial, Tudor, Spanish, Swiss chalet, and mid-century modern. Additionally, under-grounded power lines make for unobstructed views of the neighborhood and the Bay.

This quiet, diverse community enjoys close proximity to the revitalized Grand Lake district, frequently noted in the news for its burgeoning culinary scene. The local elementary school is continually top-rated and features an extraordinarily strong and dedicated PTA.

Crocker Highlands residents enjoy the easy access to freeways while not having to be subjected to the sound of the cars. Occasionally, a train whistle can be heard echoing against the Oakland Hills.
