This charming Art Deco style home has just been put on the market, and is located at 701 Glendome Circle in Oakland's pleasant Glenview neighborhood.  It offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms  in a comfortable 1798 sf +/- of living space.  It features all the desired elements expected of a home of this unique architecture.  That concept is most effectively illustrated here in the popular streamlined look that is suggested by the triple pair of parallel lines that flow from one portion of the home to the other.  

Surrounded by well established gardens that include a tropical garden and a private wooded sanctuary in the rear, this residence is welcoming and gracious. This particular view illustrates the classic linear flow of line that is seen above,  combined with the distinctive step back design elements that are so in demand for this style of home.  

 The path to this cheerful step back entryway is planted on either side by a delightful mix of new and established plants and graceful palms.  Off to the left, as seen above, is a long established, and handsome, palm tree that creates both shade and color for the front of the residence.  

This spacious living room is warm and welcoming yet, true to the simplicity of design expected in its Art Deco concept.  The softly colored floors are unique,  in that they are doweled and pegged wide panel oak floors-a distinct reflection of quality in construction.  The central fireplace that anchors the right wall is generous in size, and gently trimmed with geometric precision.  

 The windows throughout the home are purposely simple in design, and as such, will fit comfortably into an Art Deco concept if preferred, or can easily be adapted to a more conventional purpose.  The size of the room easily encourages various optional placements of furniture around the fireplace.

Just a few steps away from the living room is this engaging dining room.  The room easily accommodates a comfortably sized table with at least 6 chairs, and leaves space is available for a serving sideboard and cocktail table along the side wall.  

This room, along with many others in the home, provides area views and vistas that are an extra bonus, and add spacial appeal when entertaining.  

This cheerfully updated kitchen with its gleaming white tile and contrasting dark grey cabinets is as engaging as it is practical.  Multiple overhead cabinets furnish both storage and display space for favored china and glassware, and the lower spaces are perfect for serving pieces and cooking utensils.  

This cozy kitchen nook is just steps from the kitchen itself, and is a perfect spot for an early morning cup of coffee with a good book, or a relaxing luncheon.  The door leads to the front porch seating area, and allows food to be easily transported outside when entertaining guests. 

 There are three bedrooms in the home, all of which are generously sized, and exceedingly flexible as to various decorating options.  The first, seen here is quite pleasant, and is surrounded by long established trees and greenery.  It could be easily be used as a quiet retreat, if desired.  

The second bedroom provides hillside views of the scenes below, and will easily accommodate a good sized bed, an accompanying storage chest, and either a desk, as seen here, or and expansive chest of drawers.  

The third bedroom is the most impressive with its sweeping Bay views, marvelous floor space, and the possibility of a built in window seat that is perfectly placed to enjoy all that the location of the house has to offer.  

Seen here is one of the two bathrooms in the residence.  Along with its classic tile floor pattern, it features a spacious tub, and an amply sized sink with storage below. 

An additional bonus for residents is this congenial bonus space that is flexible enough to serve many needs.  It could be a family or media room, or just as easily be a office, study or arts and craft room.  

If this marvelous and truly delightful home appeals to you, I encourage you to call me promptly with your interest and questions.  I can be reached at (510) 517-6280.  The residence is being offered for sale for $1,249,000.
