Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: I am a stay at home mom of two children. We love to travel, and have just recently moved back to the US after a two year stint in Singapore. We have been all over Asia, including China, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Macau and Japan. We have also been to Australia, the UK, France, Norway, Spain, Italy, Brussels, Switzerland, Mexico, Canada and Costa Rica. I understand the needs of travelers!
Why the Owner Chose Oakland: We bought this home because we loved the quiet serene property with its fruit trees and flowers, and loved the view of San Francisco Bay from the backyard. We also liked the neighborhood and its many amenities.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio: The yard is full of fruit trees. We have oranges, tangerines, grapefruit, lemons, limes, peaches and apples. Guests are welcome to help themselves to seasonal fruit.
