Split-level layout creates an ideal combination of openness while maintaining privacy. The main level features an expansive living/dining room with picturesque hill and neighborhood views. The afternoon sun fills this room with an ambient glow and makes for superb sunset viewing. A well-maintained vintage kitchen includes original details and an eating nook with a bay window overlooking the front garden.
Up a short flight of stairs are two spacious bedrooms and a full bath with a separate tub and shower.
Descending to the lower level, a third bedroom/office is off of a small stair landing. Farther down is a nearly full-footprint lower level with an expansive family room, full bath, and oversized laundry/utility room with great storage. French doors open to a redwood deck that overlooks the rear yard. The oversized 1-car garage has direct access to the home.
The over 5,000 square foot lot includes updated landscaping; the sizable front yard means the home feels private from the street. A mature Oak tree shades the terraced rear yard and has ample areas for planting and more. A second small patio sits at the bottom of the yard and is a great spot to enjoy a book and enjoy the trees.
Rose Avenue is a tree-lined street straddling the Oakland-Piedmont border. Just two blocks to Piedmont Avenue shops and dining, and conveniently located close to some of Oakland’s most popular areas like Rockridge, Temescal, and Grand Lake. Freeway access and public transit are a short distance away. Spend your evenings checking out hip eateries, and then enjoy a sunset view from your new deck with a glass of wine. A true must-see in a coveted location!
