"A Jefferson area street that is typical of the upper Dimond district."

Very well maintained homes on a two-block tree-lined street culminating in a cul-de-sac at a wooded entrance to Brookdale Park.

Historically popular street has kept descendants of original homeowners here.. High percentage of owner-occupied units allow for a strong sense of community. Many professionals (lawyers, landscape designers, teachers, research scientists) live on Nevil St.

Excellent Home Alert organization; neighbors communicate well and look out for one another.

Very diverse mix of residents of all ethnicities and ages. Children play freely on Nevil St.

Visitors to Nevil St. are often surprised to find it. "This street belongs in a better area" is a common comment from first-time visitors.

Beautiful views of the Oakland hills; homes on the west side of the street are elevated slightly,
providing nice panoramas. Houses were built mainly in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. There are two triplexes in the middle of the street but they appear to be conversions of older homes and are architecturally in keeping with the character of the street.

Lyon Ave., one block to the west, is overbuilt with apartments and residents there occasionally play their music too loud.

Intersecting 38th Ave. is a thoroughfare that tends to attract litter and an occasional abandoned car.

Brookdale Park tends to draw visitors who park on Nevil St. and cars may congest the cul-de-sac during
summer months.
  • Well maintained homes, established street. Bordered by Maxwell Park.
  • Solid sense of neighborhood community
  • Quiet and private-feeling
  • 38th Ave. transects Nevil St.
  • Brookdale Park can create congested parking
  • Neighboring Lyon Ave. overbuilt with apartments.

  • Singles
