Beloved Chabot Park 4br/2.5ba home, never before rented, with an incredible fun-filled yard – just waiting for you to make it your own.
This 2000 sqft split level 1950’s home in the Oakland Hills has been stylishly upgraded and lovingly maintained. It’s a truly special find, with plenty of room to spread out, inside and out: three tiers of living space, plus a multi-level backyard with hot tub and astro-turf play area. Bonus- it’s also very pet friendly!
AVAILABLE JANUARY 1, 2021
The sloped, grassy front yard leads to a small front porch that overlooks the peaceful street and front driveway. You enter the main front door into a modern open floor plan living room/dining room/kitchen with wide plank hardwood floors and wide front windows that look over the front yard. The sunny living room is anchored by a decorative fireplace, with TV and surround system mounting already built in. There’s plenty of room for relaxing, and a built-in bar area on the left for entertaining guests or settling in for a movie night.
The kitchen is separated from the living area by the built-in bar area, plus an open countertop with bar seating and a high end gas cooktop. The dining area is on the right, with room for a large table and chairs, and a sliding glass door that leads out to the rear yard.
The newly remodeled navy and white kitchen is a home chef’s dream, fully customized with everything you could wish for! New cabinets with pull out shelving, deep stainless steel sink with gooseneck faucet, under cabinet task lighting, tall pantry with tons of storage, floating shelves, wine fridge, natural stone flooring with radiant heat, and more. The new stainless steel fridge and Bosch dishwasher are cleverly tucked into the cabinetry, and two large skylights and a large window overlooking the backyard make it easy to see what you’re cooking – and the white Heath tile backsplash.
From the main level open-concept living/dining area, you can either go up a half-set of stairs to the 2nd level to the bedrooms, or down a half set of stairs to a large media/playroom.
The four bedrooms are along a hallway on the peaceful upper level. The master bedroom overlooks the front of the house and has an en suite bathroom with standing shower and double sinks. There’s also a huge designer California Closet with custom built-ins. There are two smaller bedrooms along the hallway, both with ample closets. There is also a full bath with shower over tub. The 4th bedroom is opposite the master at the back of the house, and is extra-large, with windows overlooking the backyard and a wall of closets.
The lower level is a big media/playroom, with a wall of built in cabinet storage framing a TV mount. The laundry room is on this level, with stacked HE washer/dryer plus extra storage. The large 2-car garage opens into this level, for easy grocery unloading or holiday storage. There is also a half bath, and a door to the backyard.
The backyard is an oasis of fun! Accessible from either the lower level playroom or the sliding glass door off the main level dining area, it has everything you need to while away your pandemic blues. It’s large and open, with several designated areas for playing and relaxing. From the main level sliding door, a small deck leads down a flight of stairs to a cozy hot tub, perfect for January OR August nights! There is a large play area of no-fuss astro turf, great for big wheels or gymnastics or putting practice. Down a few smooth concrete steps is a “sunken” covered patio with an overhead fan, tucked under the overhang of the upper level. Along the side of the house, where the media/playroom door opens out are deep veggie planter boxes. And the far side of the fully fenced yard slopes up into a rugged hillside, great for privacy and dog romping. It’s 4 backyards in one, with something for everyone.
