This roomy 1890’s gem has 12 foot ceilings with picture rails, original douglas fir floors, working gas fireplace, new windows and doors, and tons of vintage details throughout. It has been lovingly restored by the owner with classic touches and modern upgrades for a perfect mix of old and new.
The house sits on a serene side street just a few blocks off Mandela Parkway on the Oakland/Emeryville border, and has a huge sunny garden plot (managed by the artist studios across the street) for it’s next door neighbor. The home is fully fenced, with a driveway and large garage.
From the front stairway and sunny porch you step into the large foyer. On the left is a small office that overlooks the front yard and next door garden. Across from the office is a spacious living room with front facing bay windows. Original pocket doors connect the sunny living room to the central dining room, with a restored fireplace with gas insert and original built-ins.
There are two bedrooms on this floor, which are across the hall from the living/dining area. Both are spacious and look out over the side garden. They’re connected by a jack-n-jill bathroom that has a shower over tub. At the rear of the house is a large chef’s kitchen with breakfast nook. It’s fully tricked out with everything a home chef could ask for: large central island with 6 burner gas range, double oven, warming drawer, wine refrigerator, built-in microwave, dishwasher and large stainless steel refrigerator. The breakfast nook overlooks the green backyard, and the second full bathroom for the house is at the rear of the kitchen, next to the stairway down to the rear yard.
A stairway off the kitchen leads to a bonus 2nd story loft area under the sloped eaves of the house. A U-shaped 3rd bedroom/office space with a large walk-in closet overlooks the rear yard. Across from that is a finished attic space (previously used as a playroom for the owners’ kids) that can be used for a workout or meditation room, craft area, extra storage, etc. It comes with interlocking foam floor squares that can be laid out for whatever your needs might be.
Off the kitchen is a backdoor that leads to a private backyard, with a small patio area. There’s plenty of space for putting in your own raised planter beds or a table and chairs and enjoy the outdoors! Another door off the kitchen leads down to the laundry room, which is adjacent to the large garage. NOTE: The owner has a private in-law on the garage level that will be used from time to time when they’re in the area for work. They will share the laundry, and use part of the enormous garage for storage. This is the only shared space on the property.
Quiet West Oakland block with friendly neighbors and well-loved homes. Super convenient location on the Emeryville border, just a few blocks from Target, Home Depot and all the other handy businesses nearby.
It’s a quick trip to West Oakland BART, Uptown Oakland, Emeryville, or Lake Merritt – just hop on your bike and you’re there. And in case you’re driving – it’s at the nexus of every freeway. Bonus: It’s usually 10-15 degrees warmer here than anywhere else in the Bay Area.
