This home, at 1060 Hubert Road in the Crocker Highlands neighborhood of Oakland,  offers amazing curb appeal, and the charm just gets better upon entry. As you enter the dramatic doorway, you are greeted by a gracious ambiance throughout.   Splendidly built in 1924, it has all the expected features of a well crafted home of its era.   To to add to its present value, it has had extensive renovations to the living room, dining room and kitchen, as will be seen below.  

As is expected in a home of this quality, the living room is spacious and welcoming, and centered around a grand and welcoming fireplace.  

The handsome upgrading assures the presence of hardwood floors, crown molding, beautiful wooden window treatments, but most importantly, to bring even more charm into the room,  the installation of custom dual pane picture windows.   

Guests, when moving from the living room past the expansive front door towards the the dining room are offered an open, well lit spot for an afternoon tea, or formal dinner.  

The well planned kitchen has many amenities beyond the normal expectations.  Included is a very appealing central island, multiple storage sources, a bright and charming window treatment, soothing upgraded interior lighting, and the installation of a La Comue commercial stove with a Viking hood.  

Morning breakfast, or an afternoon lunch is ideally suited to this very cheerful eat in nook just off the kitchen.  

Nearby is a very appealing room presently being used as office space, but it certainly has a flexibility of use.  Perhaps a media room or hobby room would fit as well.

Another inviting room is found at the top of the stairs on the second floor.  This is a warm and very relaxing sitting and/or family room.

With a total of six bedrooms, there is a great deal of flexibility of use.  Not all bedrooms need to be used as such, and office, den, or hobby uses can be considered as additional options.  Below are two of the home's current bedrooms for your consideration.  

An additional asset, seen below,  is a detached garage which currently includes a half bath, and an opportunity for perhaps an art studio, hobby room or game room.  

This very imaginative home is being offered for sale for $1, 795,000.  It offers a centrally placed location in Crocker Highlands, and as such, is just moments from the shopping and dining areas of Lakeshore Avenue and Montclair Village.  I look forward to showing this home to you.  Please contact me at (510) 517-6280.
