Once laden with fruit orchards at the base of the Oakland foothills, Oakland’s Dimond District has evolved into a culturally rich, sought-after residential neighborhood filled with sweet Craftsman homes and family-owned businesses. Like many other homes of its era in the neighborhood, this charming, two-story Mission-style bungalow was built in 1923 and, after an extensive remodel, now offers four bedrooms, three bathrooms, an open living room/dining room/kitchen great room, and a spacious, a newly fenced front yard, & spacious fenced-in backyard– all on a large corner lot just blocks from the dynamic Dimond District business area and a short drive to the cafes and shopping in Oakland’s Grand/Lake neighborhood. This terrific location is only two blocks to Oakland’s famous Food Mill, and close to La Farine Bakery, Farmer Joe’s, and many Oakland destination cafes/coffee shops.
Thoughtfully remodeled from top to bottom, the first floor offers a spacious great room that is perfect for a 21st century lifestyle. The open living room/dining room/kitchen features a bay window, a hardwood floor, recessed lighting, a wood-burning fireplace, and plenty of dual-pane windows for bright, natural light. The kitchen has lots of Shaker-style drawers and cabinets, stainless steel appliances, granite counters, a breakfast bar and a colorful subway tile backsplash. A sunny bedroom behind the kitchen is the perfect size for a guest room or home office, with a full bathroom conveniently located next to the bedroom.
The spacious main floor master bedroom suite has a hardwood floor, large closet, and windows that overlook the fenced backyard, and includes an ensuite bathroom with a tub/shower combination with a slate tile surround, and a double vanity topped with granite. Two additional generously sized bedrooms are situated upstairs, and both offer vintage hardwood floors, crown moulding, and lots of bright sunlight through energy-efficient, dual pane windows. One of the bedrooms has a huge, walk-in closet for ample storage needs. The bathroom on this level is totally updated with a stone tile floor, a granite-topped vanity and a walk-in shower.
2966 Delaware St. provides an historic home with a nearly new interior, in an equally historic Oakland neighborhood that draws people from all over the Bay Area and beyond. Natural attractions include Dimond Park & Dimond Canyon, both just minutes away, both offering great outdoor space for creating a unique urban/nature balance. This handsome home is also ideal for commuters, offering a Casual Carpool stop nearby, 10 ACTransit bus lines in the neighborhood, and easy access to I-580 & Fruitvale BART.
A true Oakland gem!
