It is rare, but sometimes a home embodies so much more than the sum of its parts. First we have an amazing location that is simply blocks to most of the hottest Oakland entertainment, shopping, dining, and recreation. Secondly you have the charm of a quintessential California Bungalow with all systems redone from the foundation up, an adorable studio/cottage in the all level landscaped yard plus a bonus nesting coop for chickens or ducks.
Curb appeal abounds with native drought-resistant plantings in the front beds leading to the covered front veranda. You will be wowed as you step into the bright great room that is so ideal for entertaining. The open concept kitchen features Carrera marble counter tops, high end appliances, wine fridge, and the breakfast bar with seating for 4 offers an elegant transition to the dining and living room. The room features two bay windows and a modern staircase that adds a warm and sculptural element to the greater space. There are two bedrooms and two full baths on this level including the primary suite with a huge walk in shower and elegant appointments. The second bath has a shower over tub and custom designer tile. The upstairs houses great value with two more bedrooms, a spacious half bath and a convenient laundry area.
Stepping out the back door you have a delightful deck, grassy area and pavers that lead to the lovely cottage that is fitted with a mini kitchenette, half bath and an outdoor shower. Making a wonderful office or guest accommodation. The wonderful surprise that is just around the corner is a deluxe chicken coop that can provide the housing for your avian pets and purveyors of delicious fresh eggs.
The sellers of this home lovingly created their vision of home from the ground up with a new foundation, adding a primary suite, fabulous kitchen and all new systems. It was the most ideal respite over the last years with its great indoor outdoor flow and flexible use for home office and independent guest quarters. This home is blocks to some of the very best restaurants, shops, Parks, a theater, public transportation, etc. It sits centrally near Piedmont Avenue, Temescal, Rockridge and the very popular Broadway corridor. A rare opportunity to call this dream project your home.
