Maxwell Park & Allendale Icon

Maxwell Park and the adjacent neighborhood of Allendale are quiet and friendly. With small winding streets nestled in the leafy Oakland foothills, they offer a bucolic bungalow lifestyle.

Most of the homes in Maxwell Park were built in the '30s and '40s, and there is a leaning toward modest 2-3 bedroom residences in Spanish, English Tudor and traditional styles.

The area uniquely benefits from its proximity to the adjacent 125 wooded acres of Mills College. This historic women's college, which was established in 1852, is not just picturesque, it offers many cultural opportunities to the public, including concerts and art exhibitions.
