This lovely Queen Anne attracted many visitors and lots of very appreciative comments for the careful updating the seller had performed. We received multiple offers, and the property sold substantially above list price. There you were able to enjoy the best of both worlds: fully updated systems with period details intact! Remodeled chef's kitchen; bath with claw-foot tub, hill view! Leaded windows, lovely wainscoting, carved plaster and hardwood floors. Beautiful stairwell leads to three bright bedrooms. Welcoming porch & picket fence! Multi-level deck overlooking a deep garden with pond,

About the Neighborhood

Located in the Fruitvale neighborhood of Oakland, CA. There have been lots of changes in this area, and added amenities. The Fruitvale Transit Village is a remarkable success story! Or head up Fruitvale Avenue and you'll find one of my favorite bakeries: La Farine. And right across the street is Farmer Joe's Marketplace, a great place to shop!

More details

This lovely Queen Anne Victorian style home has been fully updated, while maintaining all of its extraordinary period details! I am excited to have the first Sunday open house on August 19th, while the dahlias are in bloom. It features a new well-designed chef's kitchen with s/s appliances and tasteful granite counters. Updated bath with view of hills through custom leaded-glass window; leaded glass entry door. Charming picket fence leads to a welcoming porch. Two parlors with pocket doors intact, stenciled ceiling design, refinished matchstick  hardwood floors and exceptional wainscoting and picture moldings. Stairway and entry feature original lincrustra wainscoting, and leaded windows. Three bedrooms upstairs are bathed in light. Back bedroom offers views of the new deck with trellis, as well as the hills in the distance. Detached garage, and a full height basement with great work space and laundry. Upgraded systems throughout, including foundation work and seismic retrofitting. Roof is approximately six years old. Recent forced-air furnace to upstairs rooms. Sewer lateral just completed.
This beautiful home is the result of many years of loving upgrades by the current owner.
