Stunning Home + New Solar ADU

Rarely does form entirely meet function, but at 2844 Helen St it comes remarkably close. Located in the urban chic area of West Oakland’s Dogtown, this home has been freshly rebuilt. With all the modern conveniences and stylish design, the 1,929 sq. ft. property boosts 3 bedrooms, 2 and a half baths, and a brand new charming 1 bedroom, 657 sq ft ADU cottage.  This fabulous home, plus sweet income producing property, is all located on one of the most loved tree-lined streets in Dogtown. 

As you enter through the cheery kelly green front door you are greeted by the marvels of its multi-story ceilings, skylights, and gorgeous patterned concrete tile. Further into the home is the open floor-plan main level, which connects the living room, dining area, and kitchen in one bright space. Truly the hub of the home, it includes expansive french glass doors which lead out to a private patio and warm ambiance from the earth friendly ethanol built-in fireplace. The kitchen design leans on its large peninsula with quartz counters, sleek Italian Abbey wood cabinets, and top-of-the-line appliances. From this space you also have access to the large garage and a downstairs powder room.

Leading you up the staircase is a custom iron and glass railing, designed to provide the space with more natural light. With ceilings almost as high as the main level, the second floor feels bright and airy. Two bedrooms share an amply sized bathroom, with a large shower-bath and floor to ceiling accent tiling. The bedrooms also feature large closet, while the front bedroom gives spotlight to a grand french door which leads out to a Juliet balcony. As you retreat to the back of the home, you will find a lengthy custom butcher block work station, great for a home office or homework spot. With almost a full wall of windows, the primary suite is unmatched in its luxury. Here a large glass closet provides space for all your belongings and the large connected bath with freestanding tub, designer tile, and custom shower bench give the serenity of a private spa.

Leading from its own separate entrance is the charming ADU. With a fruit bearing citrus tree in the enclosed front patio, this space truly feels removed from the main house. A great opportunity for additional income, the home features a full kitchen with brand new appliances, a washer and dryer, full bathroom with chic patterned tile, and lofted bedroom with a built-in desk, perfect for working from home. Situated in the Dogtown area of West Oakland, this home’s location is ideal with access to San Francisco, Rockridge, and Temescal, and the lively West Oakland Farm Park all nearby.
