Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood has always been one of the city's most popular due to its outstanding location, delightful shops and restaurants along College Avenue, and the variety of desirable homes that are available there.   This elegant home is located at 6150 S. Rockridge Boulevard, and offers a special asset-a lovely San Francisco Bay view.  

A handsome front door opens to welcomes you to this graceful home.  As you pass from room to room, be sure to note how this home reflects its era--gracious gardens, plentiful greenery, and windows and doors in every room that draw this outside in for all to appreciate and enjoy.  This concept is especially visible in the views of the living room below. 

Everything seems to sparkle in this bright and inviting living room.  From the gleaming hardwood floors, to the expansive light flowing in from every angle, one feels energized and welcome.  


Amenities to notice include elegant window and door trims, crown molding, and a inviting central fireplace with a display mantel and a tile hearth.    

Certainly one of the most distinctive feature of the home, especially as viewed from the front, is this stunning bay window.  Notice the craftsmanship involved in putting it in place.  Truly stunning.

There is no era in which a formal dining room is not appreciated.  While a dining room was most certainly expected when this home was built, it is certainly just as useful now as it was when it was created.  

In addition to the beautiful floors and wood trim, an extra added feature has been added which is historically correct for a dining room- the wooden trim halfway up from the floor known as wainscoting.  

The kitchen is just steps away, and offers a stone counter and cheerful bay window.   

Continuing through the kitchen, you will discover a cozy dining nook which is ideal for any meal, but most especially breakfast and lunch, when you can throw open the doors to the outside patio area, and enjoy a pleasant meal.  

As you go upstairs, you cannot help but be impressed by the graceful stairwell and the trio of classically style mullioned windows.  

There are three bedrooms in the home which are shown below for your consideration.  The first, immediately below, is very spacious, and as with all three bedrooms, has copious window space and stunning hardwood floors.  

The second bedroom illustrates one of many floor plans that are possible as needs arise.

And, lastly, the third bedroom is equally cheerful and roomy.  

The back patio is such a pleasing place to spend time--whether in quiet contemplation surrounded by soothing greenery, or while entertaining a large group of guests.  

As with many Oakland hills homes, there is always the view.  Whether you enjoy it day or night, it is always provides an extra, and dramatic, addition to this very special home.  

This home has 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths, and approximately 1940 sf of living space.  If you have always wanted to live in Rockridge, contact me to see this home, or let's look for one that meets your needs.  It is being offered for sale for $1,295,000.  I can be reached at (510) 517-6280.
