About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This 1927 Arts & Crafts Mediterranean-style house is wonderful for relaxing and for entertaining, with its.large livingroom and separate dining room (expandable table to seat c. 10). The kitchen is good-sized and recently redone. A sunroom at the back is adjacent to a separate breakfast room with sliding glass door to cozy deck overlooking Asian-style landscaped, enclosed pocket garden. The second bedroom also works as a good-sized office with French doors opening onto a small balcony in front (this no doubt functioned as a sleeping porch 'back in the day').
The house is.nicely located: very close to Piedmont Avenue's restaurants and shops as well as the emerging "gourmet ghetto" in Oakland (either side of upper Broadway); just up from an expansive Whole Foods; just above Lake Merritt. The MacArthur BART station is not far away, and easy access to the 580 fwy puts San Francisco within easy reach and provides a really expeditious route to Berkeley as well as points South.

Keywords: well-located, fully equipped, beautifully detailed Arts and Crafts

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Academic (historian), long-time resident of the Bay Area who is only here part-time now. Third-generation Californian. Graduate of Mills College and UC Berkeley.

Why the Owner Chose Oakland Ave - Harrison St, Oakland, CA, USA:
This is an exquisite example of Arts and Crafts architecture, which is my very favorite style. Growing up in California, I had always wanted to live in such a house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is ideally located to take advantage of restaurants, theatre, opera and shopping in San Francisco, as well as similar offerings in Oakland and Berkeley. (Berkeley is only about a 10-minute drive away; San Francisco about twice that long, in non-commute times.) Having Lake Merritt so close makes it easy to picnic, walk around the lake, etc.
