Historic Rubino House on Longridge Road

Historic Sicilian Mansion of the 1920s

Welcome to the crown jewel of the Crocker Highlands – the historic Rubino House.  This Sicilian Villa was built in 1927, commissioned by one of the first wine makers of the East Bay, with Old World craftsmen and design sensibilities. It features a grand split staircase, marble entry, formal dining /  living, 4 beds, 3.5 bath, huge home with lots of additional space below,  including additional 2 rooms & kitchen, wine cellar, and is located conveniently in walking distance to the historic Lakeshore district.


 Originally from Palermo, Sicily, the  Rubinos, Charles I. and Marie, emigrated to Oakland about 1900 and  settled in West Oakland. Charles Rubino operated the Oakland Winery at  3rd and Center. With the onset of Prohibition, Rubino became a major  developer in the Lakeshore area, and he lavished special treatments on  his own home, by importing marble and retaining craftsmen from Italy to work on his showcase home. 


Trestle Glen is one of Oakland's most beloved neighborhoods, adjoining Piedmont and Montclair.

The streets are laid out in the curvilinear pattern of early 20th  century garden suburbs.  Many of the houses are nestled in the  surrounding hills, and lead to the main districts of Lakeshore and Grand Avenue.  Homes were built in a variety of styles, including Craftsman, Prairie  and Neo- Mediterranean from the 1920’s, 1930’s and 1940’s by such  renowned architects as Julia Morgan and Bernard Maybeck.

Eichleresque High Life on the Peninsula

Nestled into the San Mateo Highlands, in between Hillsborough and Upper Belmont, this home is one of the finest examples of the low rising, contemporary homes  envisioned by Joseph  Eichler, as designed in his mid century community of the San Mateo Highlands.  His original vision was improved upon by retaining key features and expanding the vision to include an enclosed atrium room,  an expanded kitchen,  with a second master suite.
