My new Julia Morgan listing in Oakland near the Piedmont border--554 Oakland Ave
Posted by Bruce Wagg on Wednesday, January 13th, 2010 at 3:20pm.
Touches of Julia Morgan are all over this 1912 home. Built for Charles Sutton, the property is centrally located between Grand Ave and Piedmont Ave. A brass chandelier with milky glass lampshades in the hallway rises above the stained glass encased back entrance. The matte green tiled fireplace with oak mantle in the elevated den is a special touch. On over a 1/4 acre lot, the grounds have 3 mature palms and many fruit trees with permitted plans for a 2 bedroom 2 bath maid's house adjacent to the main home. Zoned R-70, the options are great with this home, whether a single family home or four units or more, it currently has four meters. The upstairs attic has been finished with a kitchen and full bath to take full advantage of the Oakland downtown and San Francisco bay views. Ample skylights allow the light in but offers quite a bit of privacy as well because of its height. There are 7+ bedrooms and a fully finished basement with two sets of French doors which open to the ample grounds. Transportation is convenient with Highway 580 close by as well as a bus stop. Call me for more info 510- 517-6280
