Sweet 2+BR/1BA craftsman bungalow with yard and storage, tucked into an idyllic one-block street in the heart of Temescal. You’re just blocks away from Macarthur BART, Kaiser Oakland, and all the great shops and restaurants on Telegraph and Broadway – but you’d never guess it from this serene neighborhood spot.
A flowering camellia overhangs the wide front porch that leads to the original front door. You step into a foyer which adjoins the central dining room and large living room. The living area is anchored at the opposite end by a decorative fireplace, built-in bookcases, and original stained glass windows. A large picture window looks out over the front yard and street. The dining room is bright and spacious, with windows along the side wall and more original built-ins with stained glass. Warm hardwood floors extend throughout the house.
There are two well-proportioned bedrooms along the left side of the house, accessible through a short hallway off the dining room. The smaller of the two bedrooms is quiet and cozy, with ample closet space. The rear primary bedroom has french doors that open out to a picturesque sunroom, perfect for your home office, yoga studio, or sitting area. The bedrooms are divided by the shared bathroom, with a deep tub and standing shower.
The bright kitchen is at the back of the house, with plenty of cabinet and counter-space, a washer/dryer, and a nook for a breakfast table. There is a deep sink, dishwasher, and built-in shelving unit, perfect for displaying all of your favorite kitchen wares and cookbooks. A door leads out from the kitchen to a small back deck and stairs down to the yard.
The backyard is lovely, well kept, and in full bloom! There are birds of paradise and a prolific Meyer lemon tree. You’ll never pay for lemonade again. At the back of the yard is a free-standing shed for extra storage with plenty of space for bikes, tools, gear, and suitcases! Underneath the house is a small basement area with shelving for additional storage. The owner recommends using the basement as a wine cellar – it’s the perfect temp!
NOTE: There is an occupied ADU at the far rear of the property. The ADU has its own yard, and only shares the driveway/path along the side of the house for its entrance.
