If you love gardens, this delightful home is designed for you.  Located at 1624 Leimert Boulevard in the popular Oakmore section of Oakland, its charming curb appeal is exceeded by a truly delightful backyard garden.   Ideally located just a very short distance from the cozy Oakmore shops, it is just minutes away from the shops and restaurants of Montclair Village, and access to Highways 13 and 580.  

As you enter this home, you are immediately impressed by the sweeping open space before you.  The sparkling hardwood floors reflect the amazing amount of light that is let in through multiple windows.  The handsome fireplace adds a welcoming feature, and adds warmth to the room.

There is no question that the beautifully arched central window adds drama and appeal to the home.  This theme is carried through from the arched entryway into the home, to the other rooms off the living room.   


This home features a formal dining room that compliments the living room as an ideal place for welcoming and entertaining friends.  It, too, has delightful display windows to add to its interest.

An additional bonus off the living room is a beautiful nook, that is just packed full of delightful built in shelving that presents so many opportunities for displaying special collectibles, art work, or book collections.  This room has so many possible uses-including library, office or study.  

Note the special touch in this room that is created by the use of the glass table that adds to the room's appeal.

The updated kitchen in this home requires special notice and comment because it has so much to offer.  It has new stainless steel appliances, stone flooring, tile backspash, and granite countertops.  Be sure to note the space at the rear of the kitchen that features three windows, and is ideal for an cozy breakfast nook.

Another plus in the kitchen, is the availability of glass fronted cabinet space, that is just perfect for storage, or showing off special glassware and china.

There are two bedrooms in the residence.  The first is shown below, is a very attractive room, and, with its warm hardwood floors, roomy space, and plentiful windows, is a very fine bedroom.

It must be said, however, that the master bedroom is a true winner,  with all that it has to offer.  In addition to all the assets of the bedroom above, it features French doors the open to an outside balcony.

This outside balcony overlooks the very handsome garden, yet also acts as a very personal and private retreat for reading or a pleasant lunch.  

Stepping outside onto the balcony reveals the true charm of the home's very spacious and multi-level garden.  

This garden, with its warmth and welcoming ambiance, is ideal for outdoor entertaining.  Established plants and trees, and a well thought design, makes it truly appealing

The home is being offered for sale for $799,000.  It has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath in approximately 1673 sf of living space.  If you are interested in this home, or another in the Oakmore, or nearby Glenview  neighborhood, please call me with your interest and questions at (510) 517-6280.
