Sheila Sabine - Out and About - Montclair Swim Club

Montclair Swim Club - 1901 Woodhaven Way, Oakland

This private swim club in the Oakland hills, just minutes from Montclair Village, is a wonderful retreat. In 1927, the Forest pool was constructed to attract people to buy hillside lots. Fed by the surrounded hillside streams, the water in the pool was very cold. Eventually upgrades were made and today you will find great facilities including a large lap pool, two childrens’ pools, a hot tub and a fully equipped gym. It’s a great family spot for parties - I have hosted three birthday parties for my young nephew and everyone has a wonderful time. 

Sheila Sabine - Out and About - Gondolas at Lake Merritt

This is a perfect escape without going to Italy. The Gondola Servizio at Lake Merritt offers authentic gondola tours complete with an opera singing oarsman. The gondola holds  up to 6 people and you can bring your own beverages and snacks. It truly is a magical experience!

Sheila Sabine - Pick of the Week - Spanish Mediterranean

There are three elegant Spanish Mediterranean villas on the market this week just minutes from Montclair Village: 6532 Estates Drive, 80 Cambrian, and 175 Pershing

Each home has its own unique qualities but all three share the traits if a Mediterranean villa - red tile roofs, white stucco facades, curved archways and alcoves, decorative details including hand laid tile work, wrought iron stair railings and light fixtures, wooden doors and gates, and abundant outdoor space. The romance, beauty and the magic of these homes can be felt and appreciated by everyone.
