The very appealing home, with its cheerful yellow and white entry, is located in Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood at 5336 Locksley. The entrance porch and the exterior architecture reflect the Craftsman like architecture of the early 20th Century, which remains popular to this day. The pleasantly upgraded home has 2 bedrooms, 3 baths, in approximately 1596 sf of living space. Additionally, if offer a very flexible nonconforming studio/bungalow in the rear.
The living room and dining room meld together smoothly for gracious living and entertaining. There are some special touches to note here. First the sweeping arches between rooms complement the spacious ceiling space of both rooms. Light flows in from multiple windows, and be sure to note the inviting window seat in the front room. Also worthy of note, are the hardwood floors and wood burning fireplace in the dining room.
The nearby upgraded kitchen has a lot to offer. It has a stone breakfast bar counter, a central island, plenty of storage space. and an attractive skylight that enhances the already cheerful atmosphere.
Be sure not to miss this irresistible kitchen window seat below, that offers a view out into the garden. Extra drawers are incorporated into its design, for further appeal.
There are two bedrooms in the home. The first, the master bedroom, is shown below, and is quite surprising, in that it is paired with a dramatic custom tiled master bathroom, and a spacious cedar lined walk-in closet.
Equally pleasing is the second bedroom with its own paired sparkling tile bathroom.
Another separate amenity is the sun room/family room, with French doors that lead to the outside back patio area. This is an ideal place to spend time, no matter what the weather.
As you step out into the backyard, you will immediately notice a very engaging, but nonconforming, bungalow. As shown in the pictures, it is very inviting, with its multi-use main floor, plus a bathroom and second floor bedroom.
Because of its immediate appeal, and its location in Oakland's popular Rockridge neighborhood, I encourage you to contact me promptly about this home.
