This delightful home welcomes you with it cheerful red door, red brick "road" and colorful garden. Located at 930 Paramount Road in Oakland's very popular Crocker Highlands neighborhood, it has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths in a very spacious 2857 sf +/- of living space.  It is exceptional to begin with, but has been seriously upgraded with solar heating for both electricity and water heating, has a 3 zone furnace, and has been seismically strengthened as well.  

This spacious front porch encourages a quiet afternoon viewing of the pleasant garden space.

Just steps away, a very welcoming front entrance shows off the pleasing door, parquet hardwood floors, and gracious stairway with a spacious window view.

Stepping in, you are greeted by a very appealing living room with a dramatic fireplace, handsome wood beam ceiling, built in cabinets, and gleaming hardwood floors.   


The dining room continues the architectural appeal, and offers extremely spacious windows to bring in pleasant exterior light.

An extra plus for dining or entertaining is this charming outside deck which can be accessed from either the dining room or living room.

Every dining room needs a special kitchen to support it, and this attractively remodeled kitchen is especially spacious, with plenty of cupboard and counter space.  

Adjacent to this handsome kitchen is a very engaging breakfast room with its own special view of the backyard greenery.

There are three bedrooms upstairs, all of which have access to either a deck or a balcony. Below is the master bedroom, with two doors leading outside to the balcony shown in the next view.


All upstairs bedrooms have access to either a deck or a balcony.   One bedroom is shown here, with the adjacent deck in the view directly below.  


Moving downstairs, you will discover a very inviting family room, complete with a spacious brick fireplace and hardwood floors.

What was once the fourth bedroom has been converted into a very attractive office space that features a custom built desk and attractive view window.  

As you may have noticed, this home stresses plants, trees, gardens, and floral appeal.  The backyard is a true embodiment of all these things together.  

If this ambiance and gracious living appeals to you, please contact me for more details and information.  The home is being offered for sale for $1,527,000.   I can be reached at (510) 517-6280.
