Charming Updated Bungalow in North Oakland

A romantic garden oasis, this special Craftsman cottage is nestled on an oversized lot located in the NOBE neighborhood of North Oakland. Surrounded on two sides by its vintage masonry garden walls, the home features two bedrooms and two baths, plus a lower-level one bedroom, one bath in-law,  all infused with modern clean lines and craftsman charm.

While maintaining the integrity of the period style of the home, including solid oak flooring and classic molding, every important aspect was reimagined over time with a fresh contemporary floor plan. Entering via the new front door, a light-drenched sunroom greets you. This is the perfect place to pause when arriving home and is complete with a cubby-style bench perfect for a shoe-free household.

Once inside, the main living area has been redone in a great room style. The living room has a large beautiful front window and flows effortlessly into the dining room marked by a floating jute basket fixture. The peninsula offers bar seating which creates a great connection to the more formal dining space. Completed with stylish painted shaker cabinetry, brass hardware, and classic subway backsplash, this kitchen aims to impress and delight. Just off the kitchen is a convenient laundry room with plentiful storage, and access to the backyard deck, perfect for outdoor dining.

A central hall connects the two bedrooms and a hall bath. The primary suite features a beautifully detailed bath with a marble double vanity and new designer lighting and has a charming view of the garden beyond.  The additional bedroom is also comfortably sized, has a walk-in closet, and enjoys access to the lovely hall bath.

Below is a finished and unfinished basement, offering great utility as-is, or the opportunity to make your vision come to life. The lower-level unit has its own private entrance, with a full-sized kitchen and bath making it fully equipped. Off the large rear deck awaits the special garden.  Masonry walls surround the backyard with its brand-new lawn, planter boxes, large fruit trees, and patio areas. In the far corner, what was once a storage shed, has been transformed into a cozy detached outbuilding, perfect as an office or exercise space. At the opposite corner sits a separate one-car garage which can house most cars or be used as a workshop.  Just moments from MacArthur BART, freeway access to SF + more, this home offers Oakland’s best conveniences. Blocks away from exciting Telegraph Avenue eateries, and shops, this is not one to miss.
