This charming two story home is located at 2035 17th Avenue in the Highland Terrace neighborhood of Oakland.  It offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with 1412 sf of living space.   It has been impressively updated within.   Exceptionally well located, it provides easy access to downtown Oakland, Lake Merritt, and both Highways 880 and 580,  

As one views the home from the exterior, one can see the Craftsman bungalow style that is, and was, so especially popular in California.  It's overhanging eaves, generous wooden window and door trim, and efficient, but inviting garden represent just a start of what will be seen here.  

Worth Noting--There have been many upgrades to the home, which will be noted below, but most dramatic is the effect of both new interior and exterior paint 

A large, fully covered front porch with a waist high bannister greets residents and guests.  

The quality of construction can be seen immediately upon entry into the home.  The stairs that lead upstairs, to the immediate left, are well built and richly enhanced with impressive newel posts and handrails. 

An additional view of the stairwell as it leads to the second floor reveals its quality and design.  

This impressive living room and dining room combination really represents the Craftsman concept.  Dark floors contrast impressively with the rich white crown molding on the ceiling, the white wainscoting along each wall, and the window and door molding seen here-all of which adds quality and charm to the home.  

At the far end of the room, the traditional dining room glass fronted cupboard awaits a dining table and chairs, and is ready to store favorite glasses, china, serving pieces and silverware.  

The remainder of the room offers a perfect location under the wall of view windows to the left for a large sofa, surrounding chairs, and assorted side tables that will create a welcoming living space.  

ADDITIONAL UPGRADING TO THE HOME'S AMENITIES INCLUDE--stylish grey vinyl plank flooring and beautiful new laminate floors.  

The first view of this brightly lit and softly colored kitchen reveals its long counter space with storage below, a gas range cooktop, and additional storage unit to its right.  A table and chairs for breakfast and lunches would fit nicely to the right.  

A slightly different view shows the pantry/storage area and soft overhead lighting available. 

As indicated earlier, there are three bedrooms in the house.  The first seen here, and directly below, is the primary bedroom that is located on the ground floor.  

Once again, the freshly painted walls and trim and the new carpeting create a special effect, and the light from multiple windows adds to the appeal.  

This is the first of the two upstairs bedrooms, and the warm glow of the flooring contrasts perfectly with the wall coloring.  Wide windows capture the exterior light from outside.  

The third bedroom, also on the second floor, has a very pleasant color combination of darker floors and lighter grey walls.

There are two bathrooms.  The primary bedroom, seen here, has a shower over tub combination.  

 The house has a low maintenance yard, and also has a long driveway for extra parking.  

If this very unique and pleasant home is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly regarding it at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $549,000.
