North Oakland Bungalow

If you are a lover of Arts & Crafts homes, be prepared to be delighted by the details: natural wood wainscoting, box beam ceilings, built-ins, window seats with storage, clinker brick fireplace, and original multi-lite windows. The downstairs rooms are the size and stature you’d expect in a much larger home. The dining room is grand. The living room can be divided from the study with a set of original pocket doors. Upstairs are two bedrooms and one full bathroom. None of the woodwork has ever been painted! You’ll find refinished hardwood floors throughout in this warm and welcoming bungalow. The sellers have welcomed Taj Mahal, Hugh Masekela & other greats to this home, who have graced it with their music!

Offered at $629,500, it received two offers and after negotiations closed at $619,500.

Local architectural historian Steve Finacom wrote a delightful article about this home, as well as a home in the Elmwood of similar style and vintage, but 50% more expensive!
