About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

This spacious and light-filled classic Craftsman home in the Rockridge area of Oakland is available July 28 through September 1. The home has four bedrooms and two baths in 2100 square feet, plus a garden and patio for outdoor dining.
The ground floor has a large sunny living room, formal dining room (both with warm wood paneling), a large eat-in modern kitchen, a garden-view sun room, a utility room with modern washer and dryer, and a spacious bedroom suite with an adjacent private bath. This suite contains a large-screen TV and can also be used as a media room if not needed for a bedroom (see photos). The sofa bed is a comfortable queen-size gel mattress with European topper.
Upstairs are three sleeping options: A large bedroom with a queen-size bed, another bedroom with a single bed (both of these bedrooms have walk-in closets), and a sun room with a daybed, so that it can be used either as a single bedroom or as a sitting room with a beautiful view of San Francisco and the western sky. The modern upstairs bathroom has both a walk-in shower and relaxing Japanese soaking tub. The third floor sleeping loft, accessible by Japanese ladder from the second-floor landing, contains a double futon bed with a view of the lights of San Francisco and the Bay.
The back flower garden and organic vegetable garden, cared for by a gardener, is sunny and quiet, with multiple levels for reading and entertaining, including a propane grill and patio table. There is an enclosed single-car garage and plenty of street parking. High-speed wifi is available throughout the house.
Rockridge is one of the most desired neighborhoods of the East Bay, lined with charming homes, many dating from the Arts & Crafts era. Bustling College Avenue is a four-block walk away along tree-lined streets, offering some of the East Bay’s most interesting shops and finest restaurants (Oliveto’s, A16, A Coté).
The Rockridge BART station is five blocks away, meaning that downtown San Francisco is accessible by comfortable high-speed public transportation in just 25 minutes. The UC-Berkeley campus is 1-1/2 miles away. There is easy freeway access six blocks away, leading to San Francisco, Berkeley, Walnut Creek, and Marin County. Multiple hiking trails in the redwoods or along the crest of the East Bay hills are within a 10-minute drive.
Guests often comment on the calm and nurturing environment of the home itself, the charming neighborhood, and friendly neighbors. This home offers the best of San Francisco Bay Area living.
