This extremely spacious home, designed with Tudor concepts, is located at 657 Carlston Avenue in the heart of Oakland's Crocker Highlands neighborhood.  It sits on the largest lot in the neighborhood.  As such, it sits on approximately .44 acres, and offers 5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths of charm.  

The gracious entryway, with its handsome staircase and arched entry, welcomes you into an inviting living room, which is highlighted with beautiful beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, and an engaging fireplace.   


In addition to a formal dining room, there is an inviting kitchen, complete with a built in breakfast bar.

The very roomy home is able to offer 5 bedrooms, each of which is unique.  Three are represented here for your consideration.  All have hardwood floors.

Also available are 3 1/2 charming vintage bathrooms.  One is especially unique with a stunning stained glass window and dramatic red tile.

Because of its size, this home can have an extremely flexible floor plan, and varied uses. Already in place is a very spacious rumpus room, but also available for special use is a very large room with beautiful wooden floors, wide picture windows and winning views of lush greenery and city lights.  Note the unique spiral staircase on the latter picture.

Stepping into the backyard, you can get an idea of the size and dramatic impact that this home offers, day or night.

An outside rear deck and balcony area offers a quiet retreat among the trees.

And finally, the most dramatic reward, a captivating view of the city which will delight during an afternoon lunch, or elaborate dinner celebration.

This home has so very much to offer, whether you choose size, style and design, or a top notch location with proximity to delightful shopping or dining.  It is approximately 3511 square feet in size, and the asking price is $1,500,000.  Please contact me promptly at (510) 517-6280 with your interests or questions.
