First Bay Tradition Redefined

Attention to every detail

For over a century, generations of residents have enjoyed gracious living in Bay Area homes designed and built by architects and builders who cared about their craft. While no two homes were alike, First Bay Tradition architecture shared the qualities of craftsmanship, naturally sourced building materials and asymmetry. It created the eclectic but harmonious character that makes our Piedmont, Oakland and Berkeley neighborhoods so desirable.

In 2019, we will release three homes in our Velo Series, allowing you to own a new home created by local architects and designers and built by local craftsmen committed to honoring the First Bay Tradition faithfully.

The Velo Series at Oakmont offers homes thoughtfully designed to serve a diverse community of residents. Ranging in size from approximately 2000 to 2400 square feet, each home is unique in its façade, layout and features, but alike in the intrinsic beauty of its building materials and the attention that was given to every detail, including:

  • Light-filled rooms
  • Vaulted ceilings
  • Custom wood moldings and trim
  • Gleaming real hardwood floors
  • Lavishly tiled bathrooms
  • Soaking tubs & heated tile floors
  • Fireplaces in living rooms
  • Formal dining rooms
  • Bertazoni ranges in chef’s kitchens
  • Private patios that lead to lush yards
  • Au pair suites on lower levels
  • Attached garages with interior access
  • Spacious laundry rooms with ample storage
  • Dual pane divided light windows
  • Prewired for solar, electric car chargers and air conditioning
  • Engineered to current energy and seismic standards
  • Walk to Piedmont Avenue
  • Bike to Oakland’s favorite neighborhoods

Oakmont: Connected to the community

A short walk to Piedmont Avenue

Oakmont provides an oasis of calm amid the excitement of Oakland/Berkeley’s ever-changing collection of neighborhoods. You’ll find our homes at the quiet end of Howe Street and Montgomery Street at the gates to the historic St. Mary’s and Mountain View cemeteries. Your home is just a short walk to Piedmont Avenue’s mix of hip restaurants, cafes, eclectic shopping, purveyors of fine foods, and an independent movie theater.

With the comprehensive Rockridge Plaza renovation project underway, you have access to a full range of shopping options just around the corner. And the express bus to San Francisco is less than a block away.

Also, the California College of Arts redevelopment project is in the planning stages promising to bring more retail, public open space, art space, and about 600 more housing units.
