Welcome to this darling 1924 Cape Cod Cottage located in popular Crocker Highlands.  Adorned with shutters, bay & double-hung windows, brick planter boxes, and a welcoming door with side lights & lovely pediment, this home exudes warmth and charm.  Upon entering one will appreciate the vintage details exemplary of yesteryear craftsmanship.  Decorative built-ins include display shelves and lower cabinets that accent the inviting living room.  The dining room infused with natural light has its own corner built-in and generous baseboards that reflect the charm of this era.  Gleaming hardwood floors visually integrate the two formal rooms.  While today’s buyers relish the 1920’s details, they also appreciate modern-day conveniences, especially in the kitchen.  Thoughtful consideration went into incorporating certain features in the kitchen remodel.  Besides a stainless steel gas range, there’s a self-cleaning oven, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, & a pantry w/slide out shelves. ​All appliances are beautifully integrated with crisp white cabinets & granite counters.  For added convenience, there’s a stackable laundry unit in a closet separating the kitchen from the adjacent breakfast nook.  With built-in cabinets & a large counter extending the full length of this room, it can serve a dual purpose of an informal office as well.  Down the central hallway, one will find two nice-sized bedrooms with hardwood floors opposite an updated bathroom.  A Corian countertop, dual sink vanity, tall column cabinet for storage, and decorative accented neutral tile add extra sparkle to this bright, yet functional bath.  At the end of the hall is a generous master bedroom with brand new carpet and windows capturing patio and garden views.  Entertaining couldn’t be more enjoyable in the inviting back garden where a spacious patio offers large seating or dining options for sunny afternoons or balmy evenings and a tranquil garden up a few stairs where one will find another sitting niche and a lush green lawn surrounded by mature trees.  Once refreshed, there are many amenities to enjoy in the surrounding neighborhood.  From this location, you are minutes from vibrant Lakeshore/Grand Avenue shops, many of Oakland’s finest restaurants, the iconic Grand Lake Theatre, a weekly farmer’s market, Lake Merritt, Downtown Oakland, and easy access to San Francisco and neighboring cities by car or public transportation.   Period details, modern conveniences, & wonderful location…a special home indeed.
