The entrance to this charming home at 3142 Jordan Road in Oakland reflects the pleasant ambiance that is present throughout.  Surrounded by private gardens and greenery, it is a perfect spot to enjoy your quiet moments.  However, it is equally easy to entertain with all the many amenities shown below. The home is built around a central Ipe courtyard deck

As you might expect with a home that is so much in harmony with nature, this home is very eco-minded.  Buyers will be pleased to find an owned solar energy system, on demand water heater, and an electric car charger already in place.   

The spacious living room welcomes all, with windows everywhere to bring the pleasant gardens into view.  The room highlights the theme of indoor/outdoor living.  Note the central fireplace, and very handsome hardwood floors.  These floors are found throughout the house.


 This home reflects is era with its classic formal dining room, and a spacious built in display cabinet with glass doors that is ideal for storing those special guest dishes and glassware.  

Just steps away is the handsomely upgraded kitchen.  This cheerful room has so much to recommend it.  New additions include a tile counter, plentiful cabinet space, a Bosch dishwasher, and an Electrolux convection oven/range.  

Two of the other major upgrades in the home have been in the master bedroom and master bathroom.  Below, the master bedroom reflects upgrades in the form of radiant heating, vaulted ceilings, recessed lighting, and a custom walk-in closet.    

Certainly the most dramatic upgrading can be seen in the master bathroom.  It is truly stunning, with just about every amenity that could be desired.  Note the dramatic lighting, creative design, outstanding storage and counter space, and the unique tub with water jets.  

One of the major attractions of this home is its extremely spacious and appealing yard.  

It is truly a pleasure to be among all this scenic and restful garden space, especially when you realize the that home itself is just minutes from the shops and dining of Lincoln Square and Montclair, as well as Highway 13, which can take you eastwards to Berkeley and Oakland, or south to San Leandro and Hayward.
