Neighborhood


Welcome to Bella Vista/Ivy Hill!

The Bella Vista neighborhood is one of Oakland’s up-and-comers, and its history and gorgeous mix of housing styles and sizes give it some of its most colorful character.
    Often grouped in with Ivy Hill or Haddon Hill, this neighborhood is East of Lake Merritt, nestled roughly between East 33rd Street, 13th Avenue, East 24th Street and Ninth Avenue.
    “There aren’t tons of people looking at it yet, but I think it’ll get to that point,” says Thornwall Properties real estate agent Martha Becker. “It’s one of my favorite neighbohoods in Oakland.”
There’s an intriguing assortment of home sizes within the neighborhood, from small bungalows to grand estates. Architectural styles vary as well; traditional Craftsman homes lining one block, Mediterranean-style houses commanding the next.
The interesting mix carries over into the ethnic character of the neighborhood. “One thing I really like about Bella Vista is that there’s not one ethnic group that dominates the neighborhood,” says Loviça Callisti, who’s lived in Bella Vista for two years.
    Bella Vista residents are still close to Grand Avenue amenities, and they can easily catch the casual carpool under Interstate 580. Additionally, Lakeshore and Glenview eateries and businesses, including the Parkway Speakeasy Theater on Park Boulevard, are nearby.
    The remnants of Arbor Villa, entrepreneur Francis Marion “Borax” Smith’s 1890s estate, still flavor the neighborhood. Smith ended up with the nickname “Borax” after he discovered the mineral borax and its uses. Smith also earned a name in the East Bay as a real estate entrepreneur, running streetcars into lesser-known parts of Oakland where he was selling land. The palm trees that line Ninth Avenue once formed the border of his estate, and across Park Boulevard still lie some of the historic cottages built by his wife in a charitable effort to house “friendless girls.” Some of the cottages were designed by big-name architects—Bernard Maybeck and Julia Morgan among them.
