Features

This sweet 1925 bungalow is adorable as it is, but could become an absolute jewel box with some TLC and fine tuning. Sitting happily on a leafy, quiet street, it is an excellent alternative to condo living and a great investment.

Inside it’s cozy, with a nice layout. The living room, dining room and kitchen have a graceful flow, and the light filtered through the trees is inviting and serene. A fireplace anchors the living room and the large windows frame the pretty palm tree in front. The dining room has windows on both sides that open it up, and the kitchen has a vintage feel with a big built-in booth for a breakfast nook. The laundry/mudroom can access the yard outside, just big enough for a potager or handy herb garden.

Down the hall is a full bath, some built-in cabinetry and a bedroom that looks out onto a cascade of plants. This leafy outlook creates a feeling of privacy, and of being in a country cottage.

The location couldn’t be better: sitting between the neighborhoods of Grand Lake and Piedmont Avenue, it has easy access to many of Oakland’s best restaurants - both fine and casual - as well as convivial cafés and all manner of shopping and entertainment. This handsome neighborhood is ideal for enjoying a gentle stroll, in fact, the house has a wonderful Walkscore of 92. For an extra-convenient commute, the freeway is nearby, as well as the Lake Merritt BART station.

This lovely home has everything you need, and could be easily updated to make it as delightful as you wish.

Neighborhood


Oakland

Oakland’s lovely hillside neighborhoods and lively shopping districts draw residents to the East Bay’s largest city - an exciting, vibrant, urban community. In the Sequoyah-Chabot neighborhood, many homeowners enjoy large lots that border the East Bay Regional Park and the Lake Chabot Golf Course. Montclair’s homes are situated on forested lots that offer a quiet retreat from the city. Temescal is an up-and-coming neighborhood along bustling Telegraph Avenue, with the feel of an urban village. In Jack London Square near the waterfront, old warehouses and former factories have been converted to loft living. Lakeshore-Upper Grand, with its mix of shopping, restaurants, antique stores, and a farmers market, is one of Oakland’s most eclectic neighborhoods. For those who live in Claremont, the Elmwood Shopping District offers a variety of old-fashioned shops and mixture of merchants. It’s easy to enjoy a wide variety of year-round outdoor activities in Oakland. Lake Merritt, located in the heart of the city, offers a 3.4-mile walking path, picnicking, sailing, and kayaking. Redwood and Joaquin Regional Parks encompass stately forests of 150-foot coast redwoods and provide miles of hiking, jogging, and horseback-riding trails. Anthony Chabot Regional Park offers golfing, an equestrian center, hiking, bicycling, and fishing. For sports fans, Oakland is home to the Oakland Raiders, Oakland Athletics, Golden State Warriors, and the Golden Gate Fields racetrack Oakland residents have plenty of public transportation options, including Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), buses, ferries, and casual carpools. Oakland International Airport is serviced by more than 10 major airlines.
