This delightful home has just been listed for sale, and is as welcoming as its cheerful street presence appears. Located at 3996 Forest Hill Avenue in the pleasant Dimond Heights area of Oakland, it offers 3 bedrooms and 1 1/2 bathrooms in approximately 1075 sf of living space. Ideally placed, it is close to popular and nearby shopping and dining areas, and just moments from Dimond Park.
Guest stepping through the front door are welcomed into a spacious living room that is anchored by a handsome central fireplace, and a sparkling wall of windows to the right. Worthy of note are the gleaming oak hardwood floors that have just been refinished, and the stylish white wooden trim that is an integral part of the doors, ceiling, and entryways throughout the residence. Steps to the bedrooms are to the far left.
What a delight it is to have such glowing warmth and light available through the multiple dual pane windows that encompass the living room. The room is perfect for entertaining, and flexible in floor plan.
Just steps away from the living room is the location of the dining room that encourages an easy transition from one room to another when hosting friends for a casual lunch, or perhaps a more formal dinner.
A delightful dining space awaits both residents and guests. Every home of this era was expected to have a formal dining room for entertaining, no matter what its size, and this room does not disappoint.
Once again, complimenting the living room, this room is awash in warmth from multiple windows seen here, which certainly enhances a pleasant dining experience, no matter what the time of day. A spacious built in display cabinet provides ample storage space for favorite china, serving pieces and choice glassware.
This charming kitchen is a reflection of its era, and comes complete with the delightful elements that make it classic--two toned tile counter, built in soap dish, slide out cutting board, under the sink doors with air holes, scalloped cabinet doors, etc.. It just awaits a new owner's touch to create a new special space. It comes with a gas range/ cooktop.
Just to the right of the stove is a window space under which a small table and chairs could be placed for a cozy eat-in kitchen nook, if desired.
Above is the first of two bedrooms. With its setback window well, it provides garden views out of the pair of generously sized windows.
The second bedroom is bright and cheerful, with space for a comfortably sized bed and accessory seating, if desired.
The main bathroom is has shower over a tub, updated sink, and the classic, and and still popular, original floor tiles.
The lower level of the residence furnishes this pleasant, and very useful bonus room. Its use can be as flexible as needs demand. It could be equally useful as an office space, recreation room, or arts and crafts space. The steps to the right lead up to a full basement workshop.
The rear of the home features this fenced in patio area which awaits development into a pleasant entertainment retreat for friends and residents.
A slightly different view of the yard reveals the amount of space available for a handsome rear recreational and entertainment space.
If this very pleasant home, or one similar, is one that you would like to make your new home, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280 with your questions and interest. It is being offered for sale for $795,000.
