Home & Income in the Heart of Oakland's Golden Gate!
This dreamy compound features a re-imagined two story Victorian duplex built in 1914 and a non-conforming detached studio* with it's own private garden space. The 2++ bedroom, one bath open concept upper owner's flat is enhanced by newer wood and cork flooring, and a recently redesigned kitchen with stone counters, newer cabinets, stainless steel appliances and enormous skylights. A spiral staircase provides access to a flexible mezzanine, perfect for a compact home office space overlooking the kitchen, under eave storage, and a finished partial attic space. A wood-burning stove in the living room warms the home on cold nights although one might imagine converting to a gas appliance given the proximity of a gas line just below the floor. The remodeled and tiled bath with shower, is hidden behind a modern but rustic-style sliding barn door. The renovated lower 2 bedroom, one bath flat boasts an eclectic vibe adorned by ceramic tile floors with the appearance of wood, subway tile surrounds in both kitchen and bath, and has the benefit of its own laundry room. The expansive backyard serves both units and offers a blank palette for a gardener's paradise, and provides additional space for composting as well as the ample in-place storage shed included in the sale. The one-car garage beneath the Victorian also houses additional laundry facilities as well as both water heaters. An adorable southfacing detached non-conforming studio with one bath is cleverly efficent with its spacesaving under-counter refrigerator and resourceful suspended sleeping platform which allows for flex space or generous storage underneath. Its multi-light rear door opens out to a small and sweet fenced yard enjoyed by this unit only.
Conveniently located within close proximity to the Emeryville Public Market, Trader Joes, Bay St. restaurants, shops & theatre, the AMTRAC station, and freeway access, you'll feel like you're in the center of it all!
