A gardener’s paradise! This lovely 1915 bungalow is as sweet as it gets. Situated in the Dimond District, it has a happy street presence with a lushly landscaped front yard and a mosaic-tile porch. Upon entering, there is a high, vaulted ceiling that gives a spacious, open feel. The living room is large and bright, and flows easily into the dining room. All windows have big, tree-filled outlooks.
The kitchen has granite counters, stainless appliances and, in keeping with the garden theme, a greenhouse window over the sink. Behind the kitchen is a light-filled master bedroom, with large windows on two sides framing fabulous views of the back garden and the Oakland Hills. This room feels as though it’s in the trees, it’s so nicely situated.
Off the kitchen and dining room is a hall that leads to a full, vintage-style bathroom and a bedroom that overlooks a dramatic Angel Trumpet tree in the garden.
The back door leads down to a spectacular yard, perfectly designed to maximize its considerable space and filled with bougainvillea, nasturtium, anthurium, lemon, curly willow and maple. Several key areas are gracefully highlighted: a stone path and raised beds in the side yard; a covered redwood deck and stairs; a small, grassy lawn area beneath a paved dining space, shaded by a flowering plum tree; a kitchen potager in the back nook for vegetables and herbs, and a handsome chicken coop for those fresh eggs you can enjoy at an al fresco breakfast.
The basement offers even more features – a large laundry room that can also house a workshop or artist’s studio, and a roomy garage with plenty of storage.
The location is another plus, as it is down the hill from Highway 13 and the hiking trails of Joaquin Miller Park and up the hill from Highway 580, and just a few blocks from the Dimond Shopping District with excellent restaurants and cafés. Nearby Dimond Park and Sausal Creek bring a great urban/nature balance.
This is the perfect year-round sanctuary for indoor/outdoor California living at its best.
