* Craftsman Era Architecture * Play Spaces * Vibrant Location
Welcome to Rockridge living at its best. Experience this treasured community and classic home, from the welcoming front porch thru its newly refinished hardwood floor interior, to outdoor entertaining in a lush and verdant garden yard setting with a multi-purpose detached structure - maybe your future ADU? It’s a joy to find a home that exudes period architecture while located in such close proximity to all the College Ave shopping district has to offer.
The home was built in 1911, an iconic period for craftsmanship where gorgeous oak floors with inlays, picture rail molding, built-in lead glass adorned cabinets, box beams, 2 fireplaces and a multi-pane glass pocket door define the home's character. A separate entry foyer leads to all living, eating, sleeping elements of the home. Flow is great with the mini task room/entry closet connecting straight to your eat-in kitchen. To your immediate right is the spacious light filled living room centered around a brick fireplace flanked by built in cabinets. Entertain in an expansive great room with pocket doors open, or close them for more private eating in the formal dining room, also conveniently adjacent to the eat-in kitchen and 1/2 bath. A gracious wood stairwell takes you to the sleeping quarters where you'll have 3 nicely sized bedrooms, an updated full bath and a bonus room/office.
A handy mud room transitions you to a partial basement/workshop or to the multi-faceted outdoor play spaces. A trellis covered "family room" is just off the well proportioned and private yard with lush lawn, stone patio, lemon & persimmon trees and numerous flowering plants. The large corner structure is big enough to become your combination art studio, game room, home gym and shop or to convert it to an accessory dwelling unit. An extra long driveway means plenty of room for your vehicles, guest parking or your outdoor gear.
Your next home is sited on a level lot in a vibrant neighborhood that hosts annual street fairs, less than a block from the bustling College Ave shops, diverse restaurants, BART, bus and carpool transit options to San Francisco, UC Berkeley, downtown Oakland and beyond. With a “Paradise Walkscore” of 92 you are literally steps away from all things good and fun. The highly acclaimed Chabot Elementary School is just blocks away. Take in endless local and regional parks and cultural festivities where this urban community continues to draw distinguishing buyers from around the country.
