Jerry could live most of his days and evenings in his kitchen and on the deck. The open, updated space that was created with his hands gave him comfort. He would sit at the breakfast bar and watch television and eat a delicious meal. Out back he would pick his lemons to make a whisky sour, making "it a big one to save a trip" and soak up the sky on the expansive deck with South Bay views. Jerry says on clear days he could see to San Jose and on the 4th of July nights he had prime seats for the fireworks shows.
There is something about owning a home for decades and having extreme pride in ownership that makes one feel the warmth when entering the front door. This home has that. Located on a sweet block of the Glenview neighborhood where Bay views greet you when you park your car, and you are just blocks to the charming Glenview shopping and restaurant row.

Situated in the Oakland foothills, Glenview is a small residential neighborhood full of are single-family bungalows and traditionally styled dwellings dating back to the 1920s and ‘30s. Most of the businesses in Glenview are mom-and-pop shops and include a market and several salons. Highly rated restaurants such as Bellanico and Blackberry Bistro add some gourmet flair to the Park Boulevard business district, which offers great vistas of the bay. The Glenview Neighborhood Association and Glenfriends have adopted Park Boulevard, sponsoring the Park Boulevard Median Cleanup and Planting Day on the boulevard median. Twelve-acre Dimond Park runs along Glenview's eastern side, with oak and redwood trees populating the green space. Amenities include picnic areas, playgrounds, and a swimming pool.
