Temescal is one of the oldest neighborhoods in north Oakland, named for Temescal Creek. California bungalows and stucco single-family homes comprise the bulk of housing in Temescal, which is popular with both first-time and experienced Oakland homebuyers. Temescal’s main thoroughfare is Telegraph Avenue, which hosts the MacArthur Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station just 5 blocks away from the home. 414 44th Street enjoys a "91 Walkscore, 95 Biker's Paradise rating and Excellent Transit options." It truly has the feel of an urban village. Feeding the foodies of Temescal are Bakesale Betty’s, the wood-fired ovens of Pizzaiolo, and authentic Mexican restaurant Doña Tomás. Homeroom, a mac-and-cheese restaurant, can be found on 40th Street. The Temescal Farmers' Market provides fresh produce, and food stands serve chai, crepes, and Blue Bottle Coffee. Wine lovers rave about The Wine Mine’s weekly tastings, and the new North Light Bookstore cafe and bar which serves patrons on its off-street patio.
Arts and culture make this neighborhood lively. The annual Temescal Street Fair showcases arts, crafts, and music by residents of all ages. Galleries feature up-and-coming young artists. The Temescal Arts Center hosts dance and musical performances and offers classes in everything from yoga to tai chi. Studio One Art Center, run by Oakland’s Parks & Recreation department, offers affordable art, photography, and bookmaking material as well as yoga classes taught by working professionals. The Temescal Pool is just a few blocks away with all season usage. The Temescal Library, opened in 1918 with Andrew Carnegie’s foundation funds, is the only Oakland branch to offer books in Amharic and Tigrinya languages.
Lastly, there is easy access to downtown Oakland, UC Berkeley, San Francisco and all the celebrated regional parks and trails that we enjoy in the temperate climate of the East Bay.
