The Greenridge Eichler community is an enclave of approximately 185 Eichler homes built between 1960-1965 and designed by architects Claude Oakland and Jones & Emmons. Greenridge is one of Eichler’s few hillside communities and because of this unique location some of the homes such as this one come with views of the Bay and the East Bay city lights. Even more impressive is that this location allows for an unobstructed backyard with no neighboring homes and gated access to the hillside and the remainder of the 1/3+ acre property.
Be part of a community with top ranked schools and within walking distance of Greenridge Park and just a short drive to BART. And easy freeway access makes for an ideal commuter location.
