Oakland Heritage Alliance Presents
Great Estates in April
A Claremont Pines and Upper Rockridge Home Tour
April 20, 2013
The Oakland Heritage Alliance’s popular house tours are back! Scheduled for Saturday, April 20th, the “Great Estates In April” tour features Claremont Pines and Upper Rockridge, which emerged as suburban garden developments in the first decades of the twentieth century. This tour offers a rare opportunity to view splendid examples of Tudor and Mediterranean revival style homes, including residences designed by some of Oakland’s most distinguished architects, William Schirmer and Geoffrey Bangs. This year, OHA offers a new twist – two different tours to fit your schedule and your pocketbook.
Vintage Vistas, 1-4 pm
Afternoon tour offers the opportunity to view home interiors and enjoy light refreshments. Put on your walking shoes and explore the neighborhood! We will provide a street map for a self-guided walking tour to better enjoy exterior views of additional homes, vistas, and local landscaping. This tour offers the opportunity to study the eclectic architecture in a neighborhood that sprang back to life after the devastating 1991 Oakland hills fire.
