Beautiful Redesigned Home in a Park-like Setting

Situated on an expansive parcel, 978 Apgar Street is a stunning re-designed modern farmhouse style home in a delightful verdant oasis. With an expansive garden and large garage outbuilding, this property has plenty of space for  future expansion, plus ample room to just relax.  Fully updated in 2017, the 3 bedroom 2 bath has every modern convenience in a location that quickly connects to all that the East Bay has to offer.  978 Apgar has everything you need while providing the opportunity to create anything you desire.

With a welcome buffer from the street,  the large front porch and the formal entryway of the home provide a sense of spaciousness. The living, dining and kitchen spaces all connect in one open concept space with stylish engineered oak wood floors. In the living area,  the modern tile faced fireplace, custom built-in bookshelves and window seat create a wonderful cozy area to hang out. New chic pendant lighting highlights the dining area and kitchen peninsula. Perfect for chefs of any skill level, the kitchen features stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and a large glass sliding door leading out to the back deck. Off the main living space is the hall bath. Flanked by two bedrooms, this sizable bathroom features a large vanity sink with quartz countertops, a chic new light fixture and mirror, and a shower over tub. To the right of this space is the primary suite. With its large window showcasing a gorgeous view of the garden, separate closets with built-ins, and a sunny ensuite bathroom, the primary bedroom is just marvelous.

But what truly makes this home special is the backyard. The large back deck features a chic modern iron railing with a grand split staircase that flows into the garden. Plenty of lush lawn leads to the back of the property, where you find aluminum planters for your green thumb and a quaint seating area. On the opposite corner is the large separate garage. With building plans to convert the garage into an ADU already complete, this space has endless possibilities. Modern concrete pavers bring you back to the house and to the exterior access to the large unfinished basement. Also with fantastic interior access from the kitchen, the basement is perfect for additional storage or make it a project to finish later. 

Impeccably situated, this home is just moments to the heart of Temescal, Rockridge, and Downtown Oakland and with its close proximity to the 580 freeway and MacArthur BART station,  San Francisco is easily accessible making commuting a breeze.  All that combined with trendy eateries, parks and shopping, 978 Apgar epitomizes East Bay living at its best.
