Living in Elmwood, CA is like no other.  This historically-rich neighborhood features some of the grandest and most expensive homes in Berkeley.  And at the cusp of it all rests the undistinguishable Claremont Resort, who’s splendor can be seen for miles.  Claremont Avenue is home to some wonderful shops such as Afikomen Books, Semifreddi’s, and Jutta’s Flowers, a favorite of mine.  Just down the street you will find Rick & Ann’s, who make fabulous food and do quite the catering spread.  Many of the homes have luxurious gardens which look to be straight out of Landscape Digest, if that were to exist!  This area has a high concentration of paths and stairways and many of the residents here welcome those who walk along them
