This truly delightful home with its architectural charm, and cozy and welcoming front porch, is truly a handsome choice. Located close to everything at 5525 Carlton Street in Oakland's popular Rockridge neighborhood, it features a pleasing view, and immediate access to all the area has to offer.
It boasts a Craftsman style, a popular wood shingle exterior, and a pleasant front yard. There is approximately 2241 sf of living space, and 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths.
The bright and captivating living room, with its spacious windows, features the expected classic Craftsman amenities. Note the handsome crown mouldings, wainscoting, hardwood floors, central wood trimmed fireplace and window treatments.
Viewing the living room from another angle, you are able to see the very generous, and very appealing, built in cabinetry--ideal for the display of books, art, or other favorite collectibles. A glass paneled door is equally charming.
The dining room is stylish, and there is a built in sideboard below the smaller windows that can act as a serving area, or just a spot for some attractive art or antiques.
The gleaming custom chef's kitchen has been updated to offer the most in demand amenities. Included is Ann Sacks tile, a subzero, and a breakfast nook.
At the end of the kitchen is the breakfast nook. What a cheerful place to enjoy one's morning coffee or a lazy afternoon lunch, and at the same time, be able to enjoy a pleasing garden view.
The home has 4 bedrooms, two of which are shown below, and then, be sure to spend a bit of time reviewing the special picture presentation directly below of the amazing master bedroom suite.
In addition to its obvious appeal, this room has a pleasant view of the area from its many windows.
There is no question that one of the highlights of this home is the master bedroom suite. This very expansive room features a variety of built in shelving nooks and crannies, but is unique in that it also offers a wet bar, sink and refrigerator.
Yet another unique asset to the room is that it has two huge French doors open directly out onto a charming landscaped garden that is just steps away
