Over the past decade the owner has renovated much of this house, bringing the 1893 home into the 21st century. From replacing the foundation including seismic updating, remodeling the kitchen and bathroom, mature landscaping the front and back yards, installing high end light fixtures and designer paint colors, to replacing the roof and sewer lateral – every upgrade has preserved the historical grace of this home while adding comfort and a modern aesthetic.
The cheerful orange front door leads to an enclosed foyer with soaring 12 foot ceilings, which are the same height throughout the house. Through a 2nd open doorway is the main living/dining area. This central room has a gas burning fireplace with original victorian fireplace surround and carved wood mantle. There’s a hip, modern chandelier and decorative ceiling round. A doorway leads to the large and bright front room, with 5 foot tall bay windows and gleaming original hardwood floors. The kitchen is at the other end of the central living/dining area. It is tastefully updated, large and open, with black and white floor tiles, white cabinetry and countertops, and vintage Wedgewood stove. There’s a central storage island with butcher block countertop, double sink with gooseneck faucet, and new stainless steel fridge. Next to the dishwasher is a walk-in, fully customized pantry with tons of storage for food, spices, kitchen equipment, and anything else you need to entertain. The bedrooms are nearly equal sized (9 x 12) with large ceiling fans and good-sized closets. One is off the kitchen, and the other is off the central living/dining area.
The incredible backyard is already landscaped with a hard packed picnic area (patio furniture included if you like) plus wide expanse of grassy yard behind it. There are veggie boxes installed along the left side of the fence with walls for trellising (and privacy.) A door off the backyard leads to a clean basement area, large enough for a workout room, workshop, or playroom. There’s a utility sink, plus a dedicated laundry room with new high efficiency washer and dryer and shelving.
Convenient West Oakland location on the border of Emeryville and just below Pill Hill. Easy biking or scooting to anywhere you’d like to go, plus access to Macarthur and West Oakland BART stations. New Community Market a block away!
