This 1914 home sits on a gentle slope with a bird’s eye view of the surrounding neighborhood. It has 3 bedrooms, 3 full upgraded baths, a bonus media/entertainment room, and over 2,000 s/f of living space across an open floor plan and 2 levels.
AVAILABLE NOVEMBER 1ST
The attention to detail and quality throughout the home make it a stand out! Lovingly renovated by its owners, it still contains the original hardwood floors and handcrafted built-ins from the Craftsman era, but is fully updated to match 21st century sensibilities. There are coffered ceilings
A stone path leads through the terraced front yard to the front porch and main front door. You step into an open foyer with the living room on your right, the dining room on your left, plus a full downstairs bathroom and central staircase to the second level. The living room is the entire length of the house, with windows overlooking the front yard on one side and french doors to a rear deck on the opposite side. A large stone fireplace anchors the room in the center, along with period bookshelves built in on either side of the rear french doors.
On the left side of the foyer is the sunny formal dining room, with two original built-ins on either side of decorative french doors, plus large windows overlooking the front yard. It connects the gourmet kitchen, artfully renovated with Heath tile backsplash, extra-wide farmhouse sink, BlueStar professional gas range, butcher block countertops, stainless steel fridge, and plenty of cabinetry and storage. It’s the perfect kitchen for cooking up whatever you find on your walk to the nearby Saturday morning Farmer’s Market!
At the rear of the kitchn is a large den/entertainment room or office, bathed in sunlight, which also opens out to the rear deck. The upper rear deck is wide and sunny, with room for outdoor dining for 6 plus a grill with built in propane valve.
There is a full bathroom with shower on this level, as well as access to the basement utility room with washer and dryer.
From the foyer staircase, you head up to the 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths on the 2nd story. The hall bath is spa-like, with an enclosed sunken jacuzzi bathtub plus shower and a big skylight. The master bedroom is at the top of the stairs, with large windows overlooking the street, 2 separate closets with built in organizers, and a 3rd full bathroom. The en suite master bath is newly renovated with a large walk in shower with rainfall showerhead and modern fixtures. The other two bedrooms on this floor are spacious and bright, with ample closets and hardwood floors, and custom window shutters – perfect for offices, kids rooms, or … as this owner has decided …yoga studio!
The backyard is simply awesome, with three terraced decks leading down from the main living room and den areas to a quiet japanese garden.
There is a long driveway along the side of the house with parking for one car. At the end of the driveway is a large shed for storing bikes, camping gear, or anything else you need to tuck away.
Fantastic central Oakland location, right on the Piedmont/Grand Lake border. You’re just a few blocks from the bustling Grand Lake Saturday Farmer’s Market, all the shops and restaurants on Grand and Lakeshore Avenues, and the historic Grand Lake Theater. Close to public transit, including the awesome Bay Area casual carpool. The best of urban living in a suburban setting!
