Welcome to this darling 1951 mid-century home located in the sweet pocket neighborhood of Leona Heights.  Set up off the street, visitors will appreciate its charming curb appeal, architectural design, & serene Oakland hill views.  Open-beamed ceilings, random plank floors, and a delightful fireplace greet guests as they first arrive.  A handsome wood mantle and built-in shelves on either side of the wood-burning fireplace are ideal for showcasing books or collectibles.  A combined living and dining area with period-inspired chandelier & modern wall sconces create just the right mood for dining and flow for entertaining.  Sliding glass doors from the dining area open to a wisteria-covered walkway which leads to an inviting brick patio with a charming outdoor fireplace, vegetable garden, and accents of star jasmine, agapanthus, and a climbing bougainvillea …a perfect setting to dine al fresco and take advantage of the great Oakland weather.

From the upper seating area, one can enjoy an after-dinner drink, conversation or just unwind from a busy day.  Whether dining inside or out, the updated kitchen with granite slab counters and stainless steel appliances will not disappoint.  While there is ample counter space, the kitchen can easily expand to include a large chef’s island if needed or is roomy enough to incorporate casual dining as well.  This home’s flexibility does not end here.  The bedroom configuration provides many options as well.  One nice-size bedroom is located near the entry which might serve nicely as a master, guest bedroom or office while the other two bedrooms are off the main hall and are close to the full bath.

If convenience is a must, this home’s location is minutes from Highway 13 & 580 entrances, stores, shops, bus, schools, & Fruitvale or Coliseum BART.   A special house to call home!
