Pretty white shingle classic Craftsman with three full bedrooms, flat yard with shady play area, and converted garage office available in the heart of Rockridge. Hardwood floors, vintage moldings, and period details run throughout. Plenty of space to spread out, and just two blocks to Rockridge BART, Market Hall, Frog Park, and all the other great Rockridge destinations.
A covered front porch looks out over the landscaped front lawn. Through the red Craftsman front door, you step into a wide entryway. On your right is a nook, perfect for a play area or office space. On your left is the living room, anchored by an original fireplace with gas insert, flanked by built in bookcases. The wide front window has original detailing and looks out over the front yard. A wide opening connects the roomy, bright dining room to the front living room. There’s a wall of windows and plenty of room for a large dining table and chairs – for when dinner parties become a thing again! Another well preserved craftsman hutch is built in to the far wall of the dining area, with room to display your barware and serving items, plus cabinetry below.
The kitchen is at the back of the house, connected to the dining area through a doorway. The kitchen is large, with an L shaped countertop all along the left wall, a double sink under a sunny window, and plenty of counter and cabinet space for all your kitchen needs. On the right is a small breakfast nook, a washer/dryer, and a portable dishwasher that doubles as a butcher block chopping block. At the back of the house, a door leads out to a small rear deck with stairs that lead down to the large back garden.
The home’s three bedrooms are all along the right side of the house, and can be easily closed off from the bustling living area for nap or homework time. They all have blackout shades, closet space, and hardwood floors. The front bedroom is large, and has two doors – one out to the hallway and another on the opposite side that leads to the entryway. The middle bedroom is cosy and quiet, and has it’s closet opposite the entrance in the hallway. The spacious master bedroom is up a short flight of stairs at the back of the house, and overlooks the rear yard.
The bathroom is in the hallway between the first and second bedrooms. It has a standing shower and a deep Japanese soaking tub, plus a large medicine cabinet and vintage blue and white accent tiles.
The outdoor areas at Locksley are a great addition to the ease and comfort of the home. There’s a long driveway on the left side of the house, with easy tandem parking for two cars. At the back of the driveway, a gate separates the driveway from the converted garage and backyard. The garage has a peaked ceiling with exposed beams, electricity, and large windows, which is currently tricked out into a great quarantine office for an additional 250 square feet of usable space. The rear yard is flat and fenced, with a flagstone patio in the center and pretty landscaping around the perimeter. The master bedroom of the house overhangs the rear yard, creating a covered patio area that the current owners have made into a large outdoor playroom, but could also serve as a yoga studio or workshop area. Under the house is ample dry storage for bikes and outdoor gear.
