What began as a project by inventor Stanley Hiller, Sr. to prove that single channel underground utilities could be effective, Hiller Highlands would eventually grow to be the place for those who appreciated its proximity to San Francisco and breathtaking bay views (arguably the most spectacular found anywhere in the East Bay) to call home.
The center of life in this community is the Hiller Highlands Country Club, which offers tennis, swimming, and a clubhouse that’s popular with the area’s residents.
In 1991, the area was completely leveled by the Oakland Hills firestorm within a matter of minutes. Since that time, rebuilding efforts continue to reshape the ever-popular area.
In a word, convenience. Hiller Highlands sits at the intersection of freeways 13 and 24, which makes it easy for residents to commute to work throughout Contra Costa County as well as the greater San Francisco Bay Area.
