Nestled in the Oakland foothills just south of highway 13 and north of Oakland’s Laurel and Dimond districts, this lovely Redwood Heights home offers three bedrooms, two bathrooms, an open living room/dining room, a remodeled kitchen, an office/bonus room and a large laundry room. Situated on a tranquil closed-end street, the home offers gorgeous, panoramic views of the northeastern Oakland hills from most rooms.
Built in 1947, this 2-story home features a flexible floor plan that offers many living options and comes with thoughtful updates. The lower, entry level includes a foyer that leads to an office/sitting room, bedroom and bathroom on the right, and a laundry room on the left. The laundry, once a kitchenette, retains many of the original kitchenette features and offers a kitchenette reversion potential, something that would further enhance this comfortable in-law suite.
A stairway off the foyer leads upstairs to the open living room/dining room and kitchen on the main level that offers gorgeous views of the Oakland hills and beyond on one side, and French doors that open to the lush backyard and patio on the other side of the room. This warm, contemporary room has a fireplace, attractive laminate floors, crown moulding, a wine cooler and a custom, built-in wine display and storage cupboard/sideboard that features the same beautiful kitchen finishes. The kitchen has been thoughtfully remodeled with classic Calacatta quartz counters, white cabinets, and a Carrara marble mosaic backsplash.
The home’s two additional bedrooms and bathroom are also situated on this level, and both bedrooms are generously sized and feature new carpeting. The bedroom on the right has fabulous views of the Oakland hills, and the bedroom on the left offers tranquil views of the pretty backyard. A large bathroom sits between the bedrooms, and has been updated with striking granite on the dual vanity and walk-in shower walls, porcelain floor tiles and a pebble tile shower floor.
The home’s expansive, tiered backyard is California dreaming at its best! A large patio outside the living room is ideal for casual entertaining, made all the more fun with a putting green on the second tier. And no California garden would be complete without fruit trees! This lush, urban orchard offers apples, plums, lemon, and fruit salad trees in addition to blueberry and blackberry bushes, all complemented by pretty, drought tolerant yarrow, salvia, lavender, and native grasses.
4235 Reinhardt Dr offers many very attractive options for today’s modern lifestyle. Use both levels as a large, single family residence, or keep the lower level for guests, a private home office for remote working, or a comfortable in-law unit. Add stunning views, an incredible backyard retreat and easy access to Hwy 13, Montclair Village and Joaquin Miller Park’s hiking trails, and this home is exceptional!
