Floor Plans



Tucked away in the wooded hills and winding streets above Oakland, Montclair is a small community with an appealing central shopping district. Sizable custom homes, along with a mix of Mediterranean, Craftsman, and contemporary-style homes are situated on forested lots, offering an elegant retreat from the city. 

The Montclair Business District is a throwback to a simpler time before strip malls, megamalls, and big-box stores. Residents can find everything they need, from dry cleaning and groceries to restaurants. Local restaurant favorites include the Montclair Egg Shop, Flipper’s Gourmet Burgers, Daughters Thai and Crogan’s Montclair Restaurant. Gourmet specialty items are available at the 5th Quarter, Le Bonbon, and Farmstead Wine and Cheese. A farmers' market on Sundays provides fresh local produce and baked goods. Montclair is home to fine-arts festivals throughout the year, and a jazz festival in the late summer that enlivens the street scene.
