Charming 1947 cottage on tree-lined street near parks, restaurants, and transportation hubs. Just four blocks for your bus to San Francisco, or a mile to the Oakland Zoo. The 3,314 acres of Chabot Regional Park including Lake Chabot are just beyond your backyard, and Roosevelt Elementary is around the corner. Hungry? Stroll to award-winning Paradiso restaurant or treat your kids to Loard’s ice cream.
The details of this home will blow you away. Enter into the light-filled living room and formal dining room with built-ins. The large original fireplace, converted to gas for convenience, is the showstopper of the room. The vintage chandelier over the dining room table is also original to the home, as are the wide-plank oak floors. The areas you would like to have updated, however, have been. The chef’s kitchen with double Kitchen Aid ovens and five-burner gas stove, flanked by black granite countertops and beautiful hand-crafted celadon subway tile, was remodeled last year. The one and a half baths have been updated as well, yet are in keeping with the home with black and white octagonal tile and white beadboard. The three bedrooms are all of good size, with the two back rooms overlooking a delightful garden. Here a large cherry tree anchors the space, and is surrounded by roses, lilacs, raised vegetable beds, brick patio areas for entertaining, and a wisteria-covered trellis. Clearly, plants love to grow here.
