Open House-Sunday August 22nd
This very pleasant home located at 3624 Victor Avenue in the desirable Redwood Heights neighborhood of Oakland, has impressive curb appeal. Set well back off the street, it features an expansive driveway that is complimented with an adjacent raised garden space.
A pair of gracefully arched windows anchor the front of the home. Below them, each side of the garage is ornamented with a pair of classically styled pillars, which are replicated again in sets of four, supporting the spacious covered porch.
The home offers 3 bedrooms, and 2 1/2 bathrooms, in 1601 sf of living space.
This warm and welcoming living room with its softly colored walls, is anchored by a central fireplace that is a classic, and an ideal location to gather around when entertaining-especially on cooler Bay area evenings.
Glowing exterior light is invited in from the pair of two large arched windows at the front of the home, and an additional set of windows to the side.
An additional perspective reveals the the immediately impressive open beam peaked ceiling with its distinctive wrought iron cross beams that adds a bit of unique drama to the entire living area.
A reverse view reveals the remainder of the living room and the arched entryway into the formal dining room to the right. Worthy of note, and seen here, and throughout the home, are the newly refinished, richly colored, hardwood floors.
As with all homes of this era, a formal dining room just off the living room was expected, allowing guests to easily transition from the gathering in the living room for pre-meal appetizers, to a more formal dinner setting.
Just off the dining room is this attractive updated kitchen. Efficiently laid out, there is generous counter and preparation space, and every shelf and drawer is just steps away. There are storage sites for favorite china, and serving pieces are available at every level.
Desirable stainless steel appliances include a beverage refrigerator, a gas range/cooktop, and dishwasher.
There are three bedrooms in the home. The first, seen here, is the primary bedroom located on the top floor of the residence. Large, with dual sets of windows, it invites a variety of imaginative designs and furnishings.
Immediately adjacent to the primary bedroom is this updated primary bathroom. A large vanity, with dual sinks and matching individual mirrors, is complimented with a spacious tub and shower.
Moving to the main floor, two bedrooms are available-each unique in shape and size. Additionally, this pleasant room provides an access door to an outside deck that includes a view of the hillsides.
This cheerful main floor bedroom is spacious and sunny. The incoming light reveals the rich colors of the hardwood floors that are seen throughout the residence.
A delightful bonus space is available on the lower level of the house. It is currently being used as a bedroom and office space, but additional options could include a play room, arts and crafts room or home gym.
An added amenity to the room above is this attractive companion half bath that can be closed off with a sliding door when desired.
The home is comfortably settled in amongst gardens, well established trees, assorted plants, and greenery. The gentle rolling hills above add more serenity. This raised deck provides a pleasant seating area by which one can enjoy all of these delights.
For those who enjoy outdoor entertaining, this expansive covered patio offers protection from the heat of the day, but provides efficient ventilation for the day's soft winds and views of the surrounding landscaping.
If you would enjoy living in this gracious home with its pleasant gardens, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280. This residence is being offered for sale for $995,000.
