With 147 apartments and more than 8,000 square feet of retail space, Aventine presents classic and timeless architecture with a nod to San Francisco style.

Located about 10 miles north of Berkeley along the San Pablo Bay, Aventine is accessible to San Francisco and Oakland via BART and Freeway 80. This contemporary coastal community is surrounded by views of water and hills, combining the coziness of a small town with the convenience of the city. Just steps from nearby shops, tree-lines parks and scenic walking trails, Aventine provides a friendly neighborhood vibe.
  The 5,000-square-foot hotel-inspired amenity package features a clubroom with demonstration kitchen, fireplace, billiards, and TV lounge. A connected landscaped courtyard houses a fire pit and grills as well as day beds and outdoor training facilities. The library includes a Wi-Fi lounge and integrated business area, while the spacious fitness center houses state-of-the-art equipment and a yoga room. Each apartment has a spacious, open design and includes quartz countertops, modern cabinetry, wood-style plank flooring, stainless steel appliances, and full-sized, stacked washers and dryers. Most units offer walk-in closets, and ground floor units have an open loft-like feel with 11- to 12-foot ceilings. Bay windows offer plenty of natural light and views of San Pablo Bay.
