Renovated Piedmont Avenue Bungalow
Just a stone’s throw to Fenton’s Ice Creamery, Timeless Coffee and all the popular cafés and shopping on Piedmont Avenue is this updated bungalow. Nestled near the end of a sweet one-block cul-de-sac and renovated with a designer’s eye, this sumptuous retreat showcases gleaming hardwood floors, a new chef’s kitchen and hall bath, fresh paint inside and out and landscaping for outdoor living. If you want to be close to your favorite spots but feel worlds away, you’ve found your new home.
From your porch, the welcoming living room with brick fireplace draws you in, with a large closet for your winter coats. The separate dining room can perform double duty as casual every day dining or the setting for your holiday gathering. The kitchen features new cabinets and countertops, a deep chef’s sink, new stainless appliances including a four-burner gas range with griddle and a greenhouse window soaking the room with natural light.
Privately situated down the hall are two bedrooms and two baths including a primary suite that opens to the fully fenced rear yard, one of two ways to reach the outdoor living space. The hall bath was renovated by The Design Shop and features a soaking tub/shower combination. Laundry facilities are located in the hall for convenience.
The front gardens welcome your guests as they head inside. The private backyard has everything - entertain on the patio, play on the level lawn, start your urban farm on the raised planting bed and enjoy a sitting area, perfect for lounging on a couch and sitting around a firepit. An detached one-car garage completes this darling residence.
Traveling to SF, airports and commuting to work is easy with both the Rockridge and MacArthur BART stations about 1 ½ miles away. Kaiser Hospital is less than a mile away and there are several bus lines including an SF Express bus nearby. Leave your car at home for most errands with some of Oakland’s best urban conveniences at your fingertips. A walkscore of 98! (www.walkscore.com)
