556 El Dorado Avenue
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.
