About the Property
Quaint cottage in a inspiring and private setting
This beloved and cherished property is situated next to a small creek that flows year round. A recognized garden designer and builder has embellished this oasis with a multitude of stone paths and benches throughout the property that give each space a different feeling and use. An organic vegetable garden right outside the front door and deck and with fruit trees sprinkled throughout the property is a haven for the gourmet cook.
Nature and bird lovers will also very much enjoy the peace and tranquility the place holds.

This is a small cottage and a relatively quite residential neighborhood. I expect all my guest to be respectful of my neighbors and myself by keeping noise levels to a minimum. That means no loud talking while outside on the deck, absolutely no music outside or loud music with the cottage windows and doors open. Basically enjoy yourself but not at the expense of me or my neighbors. This is not a party house. Any guests that do not abide by this rules will be asked to leave.
Please remove shoes upon entering the cottage.

Why the Owner Chose Dimond, Oakland, CA, USA:
This was a unique and speacial peice of property before I purchased it. But since then a lot of love and care has gone into this property and most people would agree. From the cozy little cottage with lots of unique little features to the huge garden. There are dozens of little places to hang out in and just enjoy the surrounding. I think the property which has been well cared for radiates a lot of healing energy.
