Here’s your slice of Rockridge history! This awesome retro Rockridge 3+br/1ba house with vintage touches, back deck and garden, and huge lower storage/workshop space is perfectly located – one block off College Ave. and just 3 blocks to Rockridge BART.

Located on a wide residential street angled off College Avenue, this 1912 home has a flat front yard with pavers interspersed with rose bushes and a long driveway along the left side of the house – plenty of room for 2+ cars to park off the street. It even has an EV outlet if you’re so inclined! A wide set of stairs leads up to a covered front porch and front door. The main entrance opens directly into a large open-format living/dining room, with gorgeous original parquet floors and tons of natural light. There is a George Nelson bubble lamp, perfectly situated to sit over your dining room table.

The spacious and retro-fabulous kitchen is at the back of the house, connected to the dining room through a doorway. It’s large and bright, with an L-shaped countertop all along the right hand wall, a large sink under a sunny window, a dishwasher, new electric range and hood, and 1-year old fridge, with plenty of counter and cabinet space for all your kitchen needs. The kitchen cabinets are all original Geneva metal cabinets. At the back of the kitchen, a door leads out to a sunny rear brand new Trex deck (no risk of splinters here!) with stairs that lead down to the large back garden.

The full bathroom is in a small hallway off the kitchen. It’s spacious, bright and super clean, with a shower over a large vintage tub, plus a vanity and extra large medicine cabinet.

The home’s three bedrooms are along the left side of the house, and are a perfect matched set: small, medium, and large! All three have well-appointed closets and the same lovely parquet flooring that is in the main living area, plus big bright windows. Each bedroom features the original light fixtures – a sweet reminder of eras gone by. The entrance to the first bedroom is in the living room. The entrance to the second is off the dining area. There are two entrances to the huge rear bedroom, one in the small hallway next to the bathroom and a 2nd at the rear of the house off the kitchen.

The main house is 1250 square feet, but there’s more room to spread out on the lower level of this property! The sunny rear deck is perfect for a patio table and outdoor dining, and the sunny backyard is a fun patchwork of patio area, pavers, and planter beds with blooming roses, irises, and camellias. All ready for you to cut and display in your new home! There is an unfinished but usable downstairs space that is the entire footprint of the house with a workshop area already built in – perfect for projects and storage.
