Move right into this vintage 1912 home that’s completely reimagined for 21st century living! The picture-perfect Craftsman exterior has wonderful curb appeal, while the interior was totally remodeled in 2015, and honors the home’s original Craftsman aesthetic. This bright, sunny home now offers three bedrooms, one full and one half bathroom, an open living room/dining room, a spacious kitchen, a bonus room/home office and a mud/laundry room. A white picket fence surrounds the thoughtfully designed, drought-resistant landscaping in the front yard, and a large, private backyard offers a raised redwood deck and lush, colorful landscaping.
The exterior is a vintage home lover’s delight with typical Craftsman architectural elements and wide front steps leading to a comfortable sitting porch. Inside, thoughtful attention was given to the home’s vintage heritage and floorplan during the remodel process. An open living room/dining room has a traditional Craftsman design, and features a hardwood floor and crown moulding on the nine-foot ceilings. Dual pane windows throughout the home are not only energy-efficient, but help to filter urban sounds. The dining room, partially separated from the living room with decorative pony walls, has high wainscoting topped with plate rails, bay windows above built-in bench seating, the original Craftsman brick fireplace and a dramatic coffered ceiling.
The handsome kitchen is situated behind the dining room and designed with a cook in mind. This spacious room includes plenty of kitchen drawer/cabinet storage, a stainless steel chimney vent, a subway tile backsplash, durable quartz counters and a stainless steel farmer’s sink. A mudroom/laundry room behind the kitchen includes a half bath and a half-lite exterior door that provides access to the tranquil redwood deck and backyard.
Three generously sized bedrooms are situated on the left side of the house, and each room features a hardwood floor, crown moulding, plenty of windows with custom Hunter Douglas shades, and large closets with built-in organizers. The home’s full bathroom offers a window for bright, natural light, Carrara marble on the vanity, and a shower over a deep, jetted soaking tub. A sunny bonus room/home office to the left of the front entrance shares a wall with the master bedroom, and can be converted into a master bathroom, a large, walk-in closet or a fourth bedroom.
Located in Lower Rockridge, next to Telegraph Ave., and just minutes to the Temescal Farmers’ Market and Rockridge shopping and restaurants. This fabulous, turnkey is convenient to 24/13/580 freeways, BART, tech shuttles & ACTransit transbay buses.
A truly exceptional home in a great Oakland location!
