This distinctive, and truly charming Tudor style home makes an outstanding first impression.  Bearing all the classical elements of this classic design, it offers the expected castle like roof peaks, arches, and turrets, and awaits one who wants estate like living close to everything the area has to offer. 

Located at 4628 Melton Avenue in Oakland, it offers 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a full downstairs apartment in a very spacious 2690 sf of living space.  

As would be expected in a home of this character, this English style newly landscaped, and fully developed rear yard provides a privacy and serenity that is created by the presence of its many fully grown trees, bushes, and garden.  

As with all Tudor themed homes, guests will arrive into a stunning, and very substantial great room that is always anchored by a welcoming fireplace, a high overhead wood beamed ceiling, and marvelous leaded glass windows that are placed all around the room.  

There is an inviting alcove next to the fireplace that is perfect for a pleasant evening's relaxation, or for sharing some time with close friends before dinner.

An expanded view reveals the drama of the entire room, its size, and its true architectural conception.  Richly colored parquet floors contrast perfectly with the off white walls and ceiling.  

Just off the living room is this very congenial formal dining room that easily accommodates multiple guests with room left over for a buffet server or cocktail table. 

What makes this space especially appealing, is that the set of French doors opens directly onto an outdoor view deck, encouraging a free flow of activity from one space to another when entertaining.  

This very comfortable deck awaits many afternoon and evening events.

With a home of this caliber, one would expect a very effective and efficient kitchen space, and this one does not disappoint.  

It has been newly updated with solid surface counters, a free standing range and ovens, a dishwasher, refrigerator, and walls of storage at every level for your convenience.  

Just steps away is a perfectly placed eat in kitchen area with views to the the soothing scenery that surrounds the home.  

As indicated at the introduction above regarding the home, there are four bedrooms available.  Three will be shown for your consideration.  

The first, seen here, is quite large, and has more than enough room for additional side chairs, dressers, or a personal desk against the window.  

Three large windows capture the light and greenery from the surrounding trees.  

Just steps away is this bright and cheerful bathroom with it black and white color theme, multiple storage sites, dual sinks, and a stall shower.  

A large, sunny, second bedroom has been converted to an office space, and French doors can be opened out to enjoy the beauty of the gardens when desired while working.  

What is a very unique surprise is this second floor space which is being used as a family room-although other options may be considered if the need arises.  

A reverse perspective captures the room and the entire wall of windows that run its length and sides to provide one with a splendid view of the trees, the surrounding greenery, and the expanse of the Oakland hillsides.

An additional perspective reveals the width and height of the entire scene.  

A third bedroom is being used very effectively as a child's room, complete with built in bookcases.

As indicated in the opening paragraph, there is, in addition to what has been shown above, a full downstairs apartment available for use.  

Seen here is the very large, and versatile bedroom space that is available for use in the apartment.  

Outside of the bedroom is a dining area with room for a refrigerator.

Just steps away is the kitchen, and, to the right, is the bathroom.  

At the end of the day, there is always the peace that is offered by this very engaging and serene back yard.  

If this home is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly regarding it at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $999,000.
