Situated between Maxwell Park and Mills College, Picardy Drive is a street recognized for its neighborliness, winter holiday cheer, and elegant architecture.  The residents of Picardy Drive have for decades participated in neighborhood activities, get-togethers, and have strung holiday lights between the homes as a sign of community and connection.  Beautiful Normandy style homes built in the 1920s and 1930s make for a unique feel in this historic, established location. 

Close to the Bancroft, Laurel, and Dimond Areas, Mills College, Oakland hills, shopping plazas, restaurants, and plenty of public transit options, including AC Transit and Fruitvale BART.  580 and 880 are very close.  Easy to get to San Francisco, Concord/Walnut Creek, or the South Bay.
