Oakland house description

New to the rental market in one of Oakland's most desirable neighborhoods! Charming 3-bedroom craftsman on a peaceful, tree-lined residential street within walking distance to the numerous shops and the top-rated restaurants of both Piedmont Avenue and the trendy Rockridge neighborhoods and close to the Rockridge BART subway. Just 2 miles away is another shopping and dining destination, the Temescal area.

This light-filled bungalow features separate living and dining rooms with the original built-ins and French doors, wi-fi, cable TV, linens, a fully equipped, remodelled kitchen with cookware, utensils, table settings, and a dishwasher, and a washer and dryer off of the kitchen. The large and private backyard features a deck, a patio with comfortable dining and lounging furniture, and a lush garden where, depending on the season, you can pick apples, figs, apricots, lemons, oranges, blueberries, and strawberries; hummingbirds constantly dart in and out of the salvias, abutilons and cape honeysuckle. There is plenty of parking in the non-metered street or park in the driveway. The weather is sunny and warm most of the year.

Safeway, CVS and Starbucks are conveniently located 2 blocks away; continue down College Avenue to reach Rockridge BART; downtown San Francisco is 20 minutes by BART or car, UC Berkeley is 3 miles away and California College of Arts is 4 blocks away. Quick access to many freeways (80, 880, 980, 580, 24) and the Bay Bridge. Using the nearby bus, BART, or auto you have convenient access to all that the East Bay has to offer, including beautiful hiking and biking trails, a burgeoning restaurant scene in the surrounding Temescal, Rockridge, and Piedmont Avenue neighborhoods, and the cultural offerings of both Oakland and Berkeley.
