Nestled in the Oakland foothills a short distance from the Hwy 13/I-580 split, this sweet 1947 bungalow offers vintage charm & SF Bay & San Francisco views! Situated on an expansive, oversized level lot, this recently updated home offers three bedrooms, one bathroom, traditional living and dining rooms, a well-sized kitchen, a laundry room and an attached garage. Built in 1947 in a residential neighborhood filled with attractive homes from the same era, this lovely home offers plenty of curb appeal with a covered front porch, terracotta roof tiles and new, drought-tolerant landscaping.
Inside, traditional living and dining rooms are warm, welcoming, and flooded with natural light and SF Bay and San Francisco city views! Both rooms have vintage hardwood floors, and the living room features a fireplace. The recently updated, spacious kitchen has new quartz counters complemented by a white subway tile backsplash, a new hex-tile floor, new light fixture and new stainless steel appliances.
Two of the home’s bedrooms are situated down a hallway, next to a bathroom with a shower, separate bathtub, and the fabulous original 1940s tile that’s as stylish today as it was more than 70 years ago! Both sunny bedrooms are generously sized, with hardwood floors and windows that have views of the lush backyard. A third bedroom on the lower level makes an ideal guest room, family room or home office for remote working.
A special feature of this home is the deep, level lot that seems to go on forever. Measuring more than 6,000 square feet, the backyard features a magnificent, sculptural oak tree, one of many found in the East Bay, and from which the city of Oakland originally took its name. The expansive yard also has citrus trees, Japanese maples and much more, providing the perfect space to relax, garden or consider building an ADU for personal use or generating income.
7412 Sunkist Dr is just minutes from the open space and hiking trails of Redwood Regional/Joaquin Miller parks, the Oakland Zoo/Knowland Park, the stores and restaurants in Montclair Village, and everything that Mills College has to offer.
A true Oakland gem!
