Twenty -seven unusually beautiful English designed homes. Five, six and seven rooms, basements, furnaces, water heaters and laundry rooms. Close to new schools.

All basements are sufficiently large to provide space for a social hall. The five room homes can be converted to six room homes by completing another room upstairs, the stairways are already built.

I have been an Oakland history buff since going on an Oakland Heritage Alliance Tour of the Fernwood Neighborhood in the Montclair District of Oakland, in the mid-80's. On that tour, I learned that there use to be a train (Sacramento Northern) that ran through Montclair, in the early 1900's and that people lived the area as early as 1860's. I have been hooked ever since. Since then I have spent a lot of time looking into the history of Montclair and I have learned a lot. I feel this will be the best way to get it out of my head and onto paper.
