Just a gorgeous craftsman here with a great yard and a super convenient, easily walkable location to the shops and restaurants of the Dimond neighborhood. For commuters to San Francisco, casual carpool picks up just a block or so away. Bus line to Fruitvale BART is just a couple blocks away. But aside from the location what you have here is a lovingly updated and maintained 1924 craftsman 3bd/1.5ba home with over 1400sf of living space and a 4370sf lot. Really a charming home in a great spot!

Fully updated 2bd/2ba 1895 Victorian with a nice yard and a great location with easy access to downtown Oakland, San Francisco, Emeryville and Berkeley. It’s really the quintessential hope for most everyone shopping for a home in West Oakland. Over these recent years the demand in West Oakland has inclined dramatically and the volume of amazing renovations just seems to have gained year after year. There’s been a Renaissance occurring in West Oakland for a while now, and if you want to get in I’d say this one is a great one to check out!

I just really like the interior vibe of this home; lots of great woodwork and lots of natural light with open vistas between rooms makes this one a winner for me. Its location definitely doesn’t hurt as well, with a nice though small plot near Edna Brewer Middle School in the coveted neighborhood of Glenview. Transbay bus line is nearby for those who commute to San Francisco. Easy walk to Glenview restaurants, Dimond Park, and Dimond neighborhood attractions such as the Oktoberfest beer festival! Great spot in a great neighborhood!

Check out this wonderful Victorian charmer in West Oakland. Easy access to the West Oakland BART, and located in one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in the area. Room to expand in the large basement area here too. Great chance to get into the quickly rising West Oakland scene!

Yep it’s the classic A-frame, Tahoe-style! And this one is within walking distance to Montclair Village. Sweet design with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. Built for admiring and enjoying the serenity of the Oakland hills. Lovely valley views from two floors of this home as well as from the lot itself. It’s a charmer built in 1976 that’s awaiting the next chapter in its life.

You’re going to want to be watching Toler Heights! If you’re a view-seeker, this neighborhood has them and the renovations are multiplying along the streets of these hills. This charmer was built in 1927, but it’s had a major modern restoration. Lots of space in this 4bd/3ba home with a very large 6250sf lot as well! Definitely one to check out!

Turn of the century neighborhood with Victorians, Edwardians and craftsmans here. Once again, we’re seeing here the rough cut version of what can (and will) be. Tons of period charm, convenient north Oakland location, priced in a range where investors will likely compete to make it a rehab project. We’ve been watching the evolution of so many neighborhoods over these recent years, and this one is one of them.

What an absolute gem! This 1926 Tudor-style home in the lovely Mills Gardens neighborhood just bubbles over with style and charm! 3bd/2ba with a single story 1431sf footprint plus a 4000sf lot and a detached garage, great updates and a conscious preservation of the period details. I just love it! If you’re shopping in this price range I sincerely recommend you get to know neighborhoods like this one, and also Maxwell Park, Frick, Millsmont and Allendale.

This is one where you really have to step inside and peek around. It’s a lovely remodel of a 1904 Victorian style townhome clearly with additional space in the basement level and potentially in the attic level. I know I’ve seen some pretty creative uses of these types of spaces in the Victorian townhome. Definitely extra cool points for its location with easy access to Lake Merritt and downtown/uptown Oakland. Nice price and well worth a look!

Mountain oasis here with this 1947 cabin built on nearly a half acre lot in Montclair. Significant opportunity to enjoy the serene setting on the expansive and numerous decks. Bonus room adds to the usable living space, and there’s already a chicken coop set up! Nice opportunity to live in a million dollar neighborhood for much less, plus it’s a sizable piece of land as well.

Cute, cute property here! Built in 1940 in the Bartlett neighborhood (bordering Laurel and Dimond) this 2bd/1ba has a really sweet setting. Lots of period charm including a very welcoming living/dining/kitchen area. Great patio and also a detached garage round it out. Open the next two Sundays for tours. Well worth a look at this home and this neighborhood that definitely stands out as another on the rise in Oakland!

Just a charmer here! Great home design with 3bd/2ba, detached garage and a 5000sf lot. Lots of charm from the 1934 construction remain well preserved and the overall appearance of the home just feels great. Flip through the pics yourself by clicking through to the MLS listing. Lovely spot in the Maxwell Park neighborhood as well! Open to tour on the two coming Sundays. Well worth a look!

I’ve been keeping an eye on this one, and I’m telling you this spot is worth a look. On its lovely perch with its bay views sits this wonderful Mediterranean design 3bd/2ba with almost 2000sf. Sits on a nice 4600sf lot, too. Built in 1955 with some lovely details, it really surprises me it’s still not found its suitor yet. Great opportunity!

I’ve been following this one and I’m totally surprised that it’s still available. What a sweet place! Nice big home with a finished attic space, detached garage and a 5000sf lot. Located right in the heart of the border of Laurel and Dimond, two well sought-after neighborhoods in Oakland. Check out the open design inside, and check out the space to spread out outdoors. This one really looks worth a peek!

Interesting spot here in the Jefferson neighborhood, considered one of the hottest rising neighborhoods in the entire bay area according to some market watchers. Back on the market after an unsuccessful attempt to purchase is this charming 1919 3bd/1.5ba home with over 1700sf on a 4800sf lot. Wow. I already think it’s worth checking out based on that. Nice price, too! Good variety of pictures in the listing. Click through to check it out.

You really, really have to click the picture here and go to the photos in the MLS Listing on this one. This home has undergone a full renovation with beautiful designer touches that preserve the period details of this gorgeous 1921 2bd/2ba home in Oakland’s charming Maxwell Park. It’s just so nice… every room. Inside and out it just looks and feels like a charming, upscale home.

Cute, cute spot with canyon views in Oakland’s lovely and serene mountain-livin’ neighborhood of Montclair. Not a huge footprint, but a lovely spot to hang out and just a quick ride down the hill to Montclair Village with its numerous shops and restaurants and weekend farmer’s market. Sewer lateral compliant and ready to go! Open houses scheduled for the 27th and the 3rd.

This is a 1947 home with truly inspiring views of the bay and San Francisco skyline, and it’s come on the market in need of renovation. But in fully-renovated condition, in our current market, it’s probably not far from a $1M home considering it’s a 3bd/2ba with these views, AND it sits on an 8400sf lot! Keep in mind what a difference these renovations can make and be sure to factor in how this home sits in one of Oakland’s most charming hillside neighborhoods. Great one here just waiting for its makeover.

This one takes us back to 1883 in its original construction, so it’s obviously seen a lot come and go around town. Sure looks sweet right now! 2 bedrooms plus a bonus room and lots of extra space downstairs in the basement and garage. Very nice renovation as well. And if you want a little more evidence of the direction the real estate market in West Oakland is going. Check out this listing of the same home from 2011. West Oakland is super hot, and this one is right in the thick of it.

This lovely 3bd/2ba home in Bella Vista hill is just a timeless beauty. It’s just so easy to admire. It’s a 1919 craftsman bungalow with a charming back garden, a detached garage, an ample 1300sf floor plan, and period charm overflowing. Location-wise, it’s within easy access to lots of the fun happenings in Oakland and public transportation is also a short walk away. Another gem in a rapidly rising neighborhood!

Built in 2007, this townhouse features modern amenities (W/D hookups, D/W, 1-car garage) and has a floor plan that easily works for house mates. Ridiculously easy access to BART, so the city and so much else is just at your finger tips. Click pic for MLS Listing.
