Built in 1953 in Oakland’s vibrant Upper Dimond neighborhood, this sweet, updated home features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, an open living room/dining room combination, a sun deck, a spacious kitchen, detached garage and a sunny, low maintenance backyard. Situated halfway between Hwy 13 and I-580 in the mid-level Oakland hills, this leafy residential location is just five minutes to Farmer Joe’s, La Farine Bakery and Dimond District shopping and cafes.

The home’s exterior has retained the visual appeal and charm of an authentic 1950s California hillside home, and the interior is every bit as delightful as the exterior! Filled with beamed vaulted ceilings and tastefully updated, sun-filled rooms, this home blends the best features of mid-20th century design with 21st century style and amenities. The combined living/dining room has a crisp white, wood plank ceiling and white paneled walls, both offset by burnished hardwood flooring. An entire wall is taken up with picture windows and sliding doors that open to a spacious sun deck, ideal for entertaining and enjoying north Oakland’s beautiful weather. The handsome kitchen was remodeled in 2015, and features stainless steel appliances, granite counters, a metro-tile backsplash and plenty of Shaker-style cabinets.

The home’s bedrooms and bathrooms are situated along a hallway only five stairs up behind the living room. The primary bedroom is located at the very rear of the home, and offers new carpeting and abundant natural light through dual-pane windows providing backyard garden views. An en-suite bathroom was recently updated (2022), and includes a bath/shower combination. A second sunny bedroom next to the primary suite has new carpeting, exposed ceiling beams, a new light fixture, a generous closet and a door that gives direct access to the backyard flagstone patio. A third bedroom has a vintage oak floor, and sits across from an attractively updated hallway bathroom.

Oakland’s Upper Dimond neighborhood has something for everyone! Dimond Park trails, Lion Pool, and a tot playground are just two blocks away, while the boutiques, grocery stores and restaurants in Montclair Village are a convenient 10-minute drive from home. Enjoy fabulous Italian and Brazilian dining, or take breakfast or brunch at Oakland’s renowned Blackberry Bistro, all located less than one mile away on Park Blvd! A beautiful, move-in-ready home in a desirable Oakland neighborhood with a pleasing urban/suburban feel–this home has it all!
