This engaging multi-story home with its fascinating gabled roofline and distinctive trim, is located at 3601 Lakeshore Avenue in Oakland. It's pleasant front garden, with handsome hedges and dual gates, completes this home's curb appeal.
It is extremely well located. Nearby are all the favorite Lakeshore and Grand Avenue shops and restaurants, and just moments away, are Lake Merritt, and downtown Oakland.
It is surprising in its size. It offers 6 bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms in an outstanding 4794 +/- sf of living space. While it is a spacious single family home, given its space and floorplan, it is perfect for a multi-family residence, or a rental income.
Guests entering the home are greeted by this engaging and enclosed front porch, and turning to the right, will enter the main level of the home through a sturdy leaded glass door.
( NOTE: There are three separate, generously updated living levels in the house. The main level, seen here, features 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths, and begins with this living room above, followed by information regarding the dining room and kitchen, then the bedrooms and baths.)
This living room is generous in size, and is aglow from the light that streams in through 3 large front picture windows, and the additional side window seen above the couch.
Just off the living room, is the formal dining room which can comfortably contain a larger dining room table and chairs, and a buffet server and china cabinet under the graceful arch to the right.
Also worthy of note as one tours the home, is the updated, and richly colored hardwood flooring. Also notable is the companion trim seen throughout, which is the original gumwood trim.
Just steps from the dining room is this compact, but very efficient kitchen space. Recently updated, it makes maximum use of the floorspace, especially through the use of the dual level central island with its pleasant dine in seating on one side, and a productive work space for the home chef on the other.
Additional upgrading includes stone counters, a dishwasher, a refrigerator, and gas range/cooktop.
Just off the dining room is one of the main floor's three bedrooms. Two of these bedrooms will be shown for your consideration.
Above, for the first bedroom, a trio of large picture windows anchor the room, and are ideally conceived as a arc around a spacious bed. The room is rich in handsome wooden trim around the doors, windows and ceiling, and has an en suite bathroom just to the right of the mirrored door.
This bathroom has been dramatically upgraded, and includes a stall shower with multiple shower heads, a sunken tub and a stylish sink.
A second bedroom is bright and cheerful, has a roomy closet, a set of view windows to the left, and it's own en suite bathroom, as seen above.
This entryway is the access to the fully developed lower level of the home. The door's location can be seen on the opening view above.
This fully updated lower level provides 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, plus a living room, dining room, and kitchen for its residents.
The lower living room invites multiple design concepts given its size and configuration. It's supplemental overhead lighting, and dual windows provide light and warmth.
A softly arched entrance to the dining room reveals it's pleasant and inviting ambiance.
A truly expansive kitchen awaits the home chef on this level. This renovated kitchen has all the needed appliances and kitchen counter workspace that should please.
This is one of the two bedrooms on the lower level. As with those bedrooms noted on the upper level, it too, has an en suite bathroom to the right.
These central steps lead to the upper level of the home where there is yet more living space to utilize.
This cheerful space is a loft with a bathroom, and open to a variety of uses depending upon need.
Moving to the rear of the home, the home's two detached garages are seen that provide off street parking for residents.
