1617 139th Ave
This spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in San Leandro’s Assumption Parish features 1,862 square feet airy living space on a 5,152 Sq ft lot. The rest of the floor plan includes a living room (with wood-burning fireplace), dining room, updated kitchen, and expansive family room with a vaulted ceiling and skylights. Throughout the home––which features a new roof––you’ll find refinished hardwood floors, new paint, dual-pane windows, recessed lighting, ceiling fans, and modern appliances. There is also ample storage space, including a cedar-line walk-in closet in the master bedroom, a sizeable laundry room, an attached 1-car garage with room for extra storage, and two sheds in the side yard. The property itself receives ample sunlight, and has been landscaped with fruit trees, a backyard deck, and flower boxes. In addition to the garage driveway, there is also a paved side access that runs the length of the house––perfect for RV or boat parking.
1617 139th Ave is situated in the middle of a sunny, tree-lined street in San Leandro. It’s just blocks from the many conveniences––grocery stores, shopping, restaurants, etc––of 14th Street. Jefferson Elementary, Bancroft Middle School, Assumption School, and San Leandro High School are all nearby. For outdoor enthusiasts, Lake Chabot is just 7 minutes away. There is also easy access to Highway 580.
The home is accessible either through the front porch or the attached 1-car garage. The former is flanked by attractive bushes and framed by a flowering vine. Inside, you immediately notice the clean charm of the refinished wood floor, white base moulding and trim, and large windows. The entryway, which features a coat closet, opens into the living room.
The living room receives ample natural light throughout the entire day from the triple-wide window, which looks out over the front yard, facing southwest. And for those sometimes brisk Bay Area nights, there is also a handsome white brick wood-burning fireplace.
One of the best features of the home is a subtle one—the flow of its floor plan. Though separate spaces, the living room opens up into the dining room, which in turn leads effortlessly back to the family room. The dining room is centered by a modern fixture, and has direct access to the kitchen.
The kitchen has been fully updated to include granite counters, a matching stone tile backsplash, white shaker cabinets, and stainless steel appliances. Like the rest of the house, it receives plenty of sunlight from a large window. It also offers access to the laundry room and attached garage.
The family room, which looks out onto the backyard, is one of the most airy spaces in the house. That’s because it has a vaulted ceiling with a long skylight running through it. And with the screen door to the backyard and the ceiling fan, this room stays pleasant year round.
There are 3 bedrooms in this home. The master suite is at the back of the house, adjacent to the family room. Like the family room, it is a truly expansive space with ample natural light and access to the backyard. It also features an en-suite bathroom with a separate vanity and walk-in shower, as well as a large walk-in closet with cedar floors. The remaining two bedrooms feature the same elegant hardwood floors as the rest of home. The corner bedroom boasts a wrap around window. These bedrooms have convenient access to the homes second bathroom, which has a tiled shower-tub.
Like the home itself, the backyard mixes charm with function. It features a long deck and a pergola for passive shade on sunny afternoons. The yard also features lemon trees—some of which are integrated through the deck itself—garden spaces, and 2 sheds around the side of the house.
