Welcome to this lovely 1920 Prairie-style home which offers a unique blend of neighborhood living & urban conveniences. Upon arriving, you will notice the striking tricolor exterior and wrought iron window decor that accentuate the home’s appealing architectural style, including a front porch where one can sit & enjoy the afternoon sun and whimsical urban garden brimming with kale, carrots, tomatoes, and a variety of herbs. Open the lovely bevel-glass front door to the foyer where guests can be greeted comfortably before entering the gracious formal living room. Its step-up tray ceiling, substantial baseboards, hardwood floors, built-in bookcases bracketing an inviting window seat, and handsome fireplace create a lovely room for entertaining. An equally generous formal dining room can easily accommodate a large dinner party and offers a convenient built-in for storing china and glassware. The home is bathed in warm, natural light from the many windows that provide an uplifting & cheerful ambiance. From the adjoining breakfast room one may enjoy the lovely tree & garden views while sipping a morning cup of coffee. A U-shaped kitchen is just steps away from both the breakfast & dining rooms. Buyers will appreciate the stainless steel Viking gas range, Bosch dishwasher and ample counter space. The warm color palette of the countertop and flooring integrate beautifully with the Oak cabinets, while glass pendant lights add a special glow. Completing the main level is a convenient powder room, laundry area and bonus room with a closet just off the living room, separate from the other bedrooms on the upper level. Upstairs are three bedrooms, which include a sizable master suite. The spacious master bedroom is infused with natural light from windows on two walls. A separate dressing room has floor-to-ceiling wardrobe closets and even a built-in shoe organizer. Not to disappoint the true enthusiast, a vintage master bath awaits with its original tile still intact. The hall bath also has period features, most notably, the water fixture on the tub’s exterior & hexagon floor tile. Newer tiles on the tub surround & a custom-made shower curtain were carefully selected to integrate with the existing feel of this room. Two additional bedrooms are off the central hall with the bedroom at the end of the hall especially inviting with back windows that offer lush views of the surrounding trees and the tranquil garden & patio below. Meander along the garden path and enjoy the lovely garden beds full of hydrangea, fern & azaleas where mature trees create dapple sunlight on a warm, summer’s day. In other parts of the garden, roses, herbs & vegetables thrive beautifully in the afternoon sun. A lovely brick patio is tucked away in the back to create an ideal setting to enjoy a good book, throw a garden party or dine al fresco on a balmy summer’s night. What a wonderful way to unwind from the day. There are plenty of activities to enjoy once leaving the house. For those who enjoy tennis, biking, walking, kayaking, taking in a movie, or exploring new cuisine, you are minutes away from Davie Tennis Stadium, neighborhood parks, Grand Lake Theater, a weekly farmer’s market, and a number of shops, cafes & restaurants along Lakeshore and Grand Avenues. With bus transportation right on Lakeshore itself, one can easily get to Lake Merritt, downtown Oakland and affords easy accessibility to 580, San Francisco & surrounding areas.
