This charming split-level, 3 bedroom 1.5 bathroom Craftsman Bungalow has been professionally remodeled with designer touches throughout it’s nearly 1,150 square feet of living space and sits on an oversized 5000 sq. ft lot.

The all-new chef’s kitchen with stainless appliances, Shaker cabinets and honed quartz stone counters with adjoining breakfast bar will undoubtedly anchor countless memorable gatherings with friends and family. Gleaming, ebonized oak hardwood and matching original fir flooring extend across the home, harmoniously tying together many of the original Craftsman details with an open plan layout suitable for a modern, urban lifestyle.

Both bathrooms have been completely updated with
floating vanities, beautiful tile throughout, low-water use toilets and
new fixtures and lighting. An in-home laundry with hookups is located in
the mud room just steps from the kitchen and downstairs bedroom.

The design+build team took great care in approaching the restoration of
this home in a way that prepares it for life in the 21st Century. Walking
through the home, its timeless grace is easy to appreciate; however, this
home’s beauty is more than skin-deep. A brand new Takagi tankless, on
demand water heater was added, which reduces energy and water
consumption. Additionally, a new 99% efficient (the highest possible)
forced air heating system was added to take the chill out of the air on
those cold January nights. Entirely new plumbing (including a new sewer
lateral) and electrical systems, along with a newer roof and thermally
efficient dual pane windows ensure the new homeowner will have many years
of carefree and efficient living.

A large, fenced backyard is ready for kids and pets to enjoy safely and
securely. The family gardener will happily harvest fruit from the mature
cherry, fig, apple, mandarin and persimmon trees, along with herbs and
vegetables from the raised-bed redwood box. Drought tolerant plants were
used extensively and are supported by automated drip irrigation.

At the far end of nearly 80 feet long gated driveway sits the detached and
oversized 19×27 finished garage. Wow, what a huge space with unlimited
uses. Of course, it could be perfect for vehicle storage or restoring
that vintage automobile. Or, open up your imagination – perhaps use it for
arts and crafts projects, ping-pong, foosball, or as a video game room or
teen lounge. The options are limitless.

Located on a quiet street in the sunny Peralta Creek neighborhood of
Oakland, this home boasts a “very walkable” score of 71, and is
conveniently situated midway between the Laurel and Fruitvale
Districts, affording easy access to BART, AC Transit, and Highways 580 and
13. A five-minute walk will put you in front of Farmer Joe’s Market, a
notable grocery store located in the Laurel Business District.
