Situated right on the border between Oakland’s Upper Dimond and Lincoln Highlands neighborhoods on a tranquil, tree-lined street, this sweet bungalow is filled with vintage charm and original features. Close to freeways and Dimond district cafes and shopping, this lovely home offers two bedrooms, one full bathroom, formal living and dining rooms, an updated kitchen, a finished basement laundry area and a detached garage with a bonus space that’s convenient for a home office, studio or workshop.
Built in 1928, the home shares many architectural features prized by today’s vintage home lovers. The spacious traditional living room is picture perfect with a 9-foot barrel ceiling, a vintage oak floor, a period fireplace nestled between tall casement windows, and the wonderfully decorative picture window that adds so much to this room’s elegant design. The dining room is the perfect size for family gatherings, and includes the same oak floor and wonderful decorative window trim found in the living room.
An expansive, eat-in kitchen is situated behind the dining room, and has the original Douglas fir floor and a large built-in cupboard, both of which blend seamlessly with gray quartz counters and stainless steel appliances. A backdoor opens from the kitchen to a very private backyard oasis, providing easy indoor/outdoor access.
Two well-sized bedrooms are separated by a full bathroom that has a black and white hex-tile floor, a white porcelain pedestal sink, and a tub/shower combination with a white subway tile surround. Both bedrooms have a hardwood floor, generous closets, and plenty of natural light. Down below in the basement, is the laundry room with extra space for storage.
3887 Coolidge Ave. is a vintage gem that’s truly a home lover’s dream. Located in a desirable Upper Dimond location that’s just minutes to Hwy 13, Montclair Village, the Dimond district’s Farmer Joe’s Marketplace, Peet’s and La Farine Bakery, this convenient central location offers easy access to I-580, BART and ACTransit.
