Sited on a quiet cul-de-sac in the popular Upper Laurel district of Oakland you’ll find this charming Cape Cod home. Warm and welcoming with an easy floor plan, hardwood floors, fresh paint, three bedrooms and two baths, including a spa-like master retreat, this home has all the right spaces for comfortable East Bay living.
Enter into an inviting living room with fireplace and lovely light. The dining area is perfetly situated next to the remodeled kitchen that features beautiful cherry cabinetry, stainless appliances, solid surface counter tops and plenty of storage. A pantry with laundry closet and backyard access is just off the kitchen. The two bedrooms and full bath on this level boast amazing outlooks onto the lush garden.
Feel yourself unwind in the upstairs light-filled master retreat with skylit bath and separate lounge, ideal as a nursery, meditation room, office or music room. A high efficiency heat pump keeps these spaces warm in the winter and comfortable in the summer’s heat.
Attractive and sensible upgrades were made by the previous owner approximately 5 years ago, including the chef's kitchen, a new furnace, new tankless water heater and dual pane windows that improve efficiency and bathe the home in natural light.
For all the charm and function the dwelling has to offer, the crown jewel of this property is its enchanting gardens. The world is forgotten among the meandering paths, mature trees, flowering shrubs, squirrels and bird song. Dig your hands into the soil, relax with a glass of wine or watch the amusing antics of your own chickens as you recover from life’s stresses in this bucolic setting.
