On a quiet, tree-lined street in the desirable Glenview neighborhood sits this elegant shingled, craftsman home. Historic architectural details blend with thoughtful modern updates to create a graceful balance of circa-1912 character and circa-2018 livability.
A brick path leads to a watch-the-world-go-by front porch that sets the stage for the wood-framed home, creating an inviting entrance into this stunning residence. Inside, the light-filled formal living room sparkles with a custom fireplace, multi-paned windows opening out to the veranda. Step through to the formal dining room detailed with gorgeous wainscoting, in a space big enough to go for a large dining table. Comfort and sophistication blend in the original parlor, reimagined as a bedroom (or office, or family room …), with beautiful period details: multi-paned windows, wainscoting and bead board, and a fireplace. The adjacent master bedroom is airy, bright and spacious with two closets and a spacious bath. High windows allow for plenty of natural light (and privacy) in the master bathroom, with deep tub and shower offer.
The large kitchen is just off the formal dining room. White cabinetry, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances create a well-appointed work space for cooks, and a welcoming, warm environment for friends & family. A stackable washer/dryer is conveniently located around the corner, and the breakfast nook overlooks the spacious outdoor deck. French doors lead to the alfresco gathering space, and the large deck and surrounding garden create an ideal indoor-outdoor connection to take advantage of the temperate California climate. Completing the main level is a second bathroom, with generous built-in storage. Tucked away upstairs are cozy bedrooms, sunny and bright, fitting both style and function into the private space.
A long, wide driveway features an electric vehicle charging station, and a large garage at the rear of the property has been used as an exercise room and workshop. It could easily be reimagined as an art studio, man cave, or teen hangout. The possibilities are endless. Welcome home.
The Glenview neighborhood is a mix of quiet comfort and urban amenities, and despite being a part of the big city, Glenview feels like a small town. A stroll away, Park Boulevard is home to a vibrant mix of restaurants and shops; Dimond Park has a pool, a playground, a creek and the oldest oak tree in Oakland. If you need to hit the road, there is convenient access to casual carpool, AC Transit, and freeways. Pretty streets, interesting architecture, a strong community, and easy walkability make Glenview a neighborhood residents are glad to call home.
