This handsomely designed architectural gem represents a traditional look which is always popular, no matter what city you live in.  There are so many elements which make it appealing. Starting with the creative and varied window and roof treatments, the plentiful use of a classic brick motif in the stairs and handsome front patio, and, finally, with a beautiful front garden, you clearly observe an outstanding home.

It is located at 796 Rosemount Drive in Oakland's popular Crocker Highlands neighborhood. Amazingly spacious, it has approximately 3,398 sf of living space, with 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms. It is close to all the Lakeshore and Grand Avenue shops, stores and restaurants, including Trader Joe's and the weekend Farmers Market.  

As you enter home and its living room, your eye is immediately caught by two dramatic elements.  First the sweeping front window, and secondly the elegant central fireplace.  Both are expected and welcomed in a home of this quality.  Additionally, the crown moulding, wood trim, and hardwood floors throughout the home add more value and warmth to any already pleasing home.

Adjacent to the living room is a formal dining room with its beautifully designed mullioned windows that invites a pleasant evening meal at the end of the day.

There is a very handsome and winning kitchen nearby.  This kitchen has upgraded appliances, plentiful storage space, a stone counter, and beautiful floors.  


There is space for an eat-in nook, and a door that opens directly onto the patio, making indoor/outdoor living very appealing.

The home also features a cozy bonus room, which can be used as a family room, an office, or a hobby area.  Note that it, as with the kitchen, opens up onto the back patio/garden .

The house has 4 charming bedrooms.  Three are shown here for your consideration.  One of the largest bedrooms has so many captivating features.  It has walls of windows, hardwood floors, views of the garden, and double doors that open onto that very garden.  


Both bedrooms below stay true to the quality construction of the home.  That includes handsome wood trim of doors and windows, crown moulding, hardwood floors and windows that allow plentiful light flowing in.    

The patio garden is a quiet and colorful retreat, and perfect for an afternoon luncheon or a perfect place to sit and read on a lazy day.  

This home offers location, outstanding design and classic architecture.  It is being offered for sale for $1,595,000.  Should you want to tour it, or gather more information, please call me for details at (510) 517-6280.
