This 4BR/3BA 1940’s Mediterranean has been lovingly updated by its owners, with a focus on indoor/outdoor flow, energy efficiency, fun, and style. It’s freshly painted, inside and out, with brand new energy efficient windows in every room and a full-home heating/cooling/filtration system (installed during last year’s fire season) to keep the house comfortable in any weather.
From the shady street, a pathway leads to the front porch and front door. You step into a wide foyer in the center of the ground floor. On your right is a very spacious living room with oak flooring, vaulted ceiling, and pretty bay window. It’s a perfect spot for movie nights or sipping wine by the original wood-burning fireplace.
The foyer separates the formal dining room from the living area. It’s bright and central, connected to the rear kitchen by another arched doorway. The light-filled designer kitchen is a chef’s dream. It features a brand-new 6-burner stove with oven and high-end hood, a second Miele speed oven/microwave, built-in Jenn-Air fridge, under-counter beverage/wine fridge, Jenn-Air dishwasher, filtered hot water on demand, plus lots of counter space and storage. At the rear of the kitchen is a corner breakfast nook, with brand-new French doors that open onto a recently built Brazilian hardwood deck and a private, landscaped backyard.
The spectacular backyard features a sport court with built-in basketball hoop, a trampoline, a shaded patio with comfortable seating, a natural gas firepit which doubles as a Brazilian hardwood coffee table, and a natural gas grill. Tasteful lighting automatically illuminates the backyard (and front yard) at dusk each night.
From the central foyer, stairs lead up to the first (split) level, where you’ll find two roomy light-filled bedrooms with hardwood floors. One bedroom has brand-new French doors which lead to a large, private balcony with irrigated planters and a gardening sink. The rooms are separated by a swank vintage 1940 bathroom with tub, shower, toilet and sink.
A second (split) level leads to a spacious and bright master bedroom with hardwood floors, recently remodeled ensuite bathroom (toilet, designer glass shower, sink, skylight) and large walk-in closet.
A set of interior stairs leads down from the kitchen to a lower in-law unit and garage. The garage is narrow, but long with plenty of room for both parking and storage. There is a laundry area at the base of the kitchen stairs.
The separate in-law unit is tucked behind the garage, also easily accessible from the kitchen stairs. This sweet unit has its own bathroom and brand-new French doors opening to the backyard, making it perfect for visiting guests, an au-pair, or an in-home office.
The home features all new high-end windows and doors throughout, a recently installed A.C. system with whole house air filtration and NEST thermostat. It comes with gardening services (twice/month).
Fantastic Fernside location, just 2 blocks to beloved Edison Elementary, Lincoln Park, and the High Street bridge to Oakland, on one of the most beautiful tree-lined streets in the neighborhood. Easy trip to all the amazing Alameda shops, restaurants, parks, and beaches.
