“Pick of the Week” is a home I’ve recently toured in person which I believe makes for a great buy based on its status as a Great Home Design in a Great Location for a Great Price!

Hello Friends,

This is one where you’ve got to give it up for location. So many home buyers seek the period details found in this beautiful 1916 craftsman, but to have the same classic home in a wonderful, walkable location undeniably adds a healthy chunk of extra value.  In the parlance of those who really cherish the lifestyle that enables you to just park your car and walk to restaurants, shops, grocery, entertainment, public transportation, and more, it is scored a 93 out of 100 and described by Walkscore.com as a “Walker’s Paradise.”  So welcome to the heart of Oakland where EVERYTHING is at your fingertips. You’re literally just minutes BY BICYCLE, let alone a car, to most all the hot spots in Oakland including Grand Avenue, Piedmont Avenue, Lake Merritt, Uptown, Downtown, Rockridge, Temescal and more. In this home you have a huge reservoir of charm already in place with a delicate touch of updating so the period details remain lovingly preserved. You have a garage and partial basement for storage; you have a great back deck and a sweet and inviting backyard space that actually has some room to spread out a bit; you have a classic home that appears tremendously well cared-for; and you have a location that keeps  you right in the mix where you can easily access so much of the best of Oakland. Far more than just a home, this one is a lifestyle. And this lifestyle is one highly coveted in our fair town. Great one to check out this weekend! Open both Saturday and Sunday, or please do contact me for a private showing! We’ll get you pre-approved for your financing and ready to make a bona fide offer in no time.
