This is a unique opportunity to own a special 1910 home and make it all yours - a house with beautiful bones that could use some period restoration and a few modern touches to make it into the showcase it is clearly meant to be. 

A traditional street presence shows off its classic good looks. A large, gated front yard can be embellished with landscaping or kept simple. The lemon tree by the front door offers a fragrant welcome. Inside, there are two parlors flanking the grand entrance hall, one with an ornate fireplace. The dining room has a spectacular box-beam ceiling, bay windows and built-in cabinetry. Through the kitchen there is a laundry room and full bathroom. A large room overlooking the backyard could be purposed as a family room or guest room, and a room up the back stairs is ideal as a home office.

Upstairs are four bedrooms and a bathroom, each with abundant character. The main bedroom has a large private balcony over the entrance. Up another flight to the third floor is a roomy bonus space under the angles of the gabled roof. This could be a charming play room, private studio or workout space. There are so many exciting possibilities to tailoring this home to your own specifications and desires.

Outside is a huge back yard anchored by a giant Redwood and embellished with roses. A potting shed sits in the corner, waiting to be put to use.

Big, beautiful and full of potential, this home is waiting for someone to bring it back to its former splendor.


The Bella Vista neighborhood is one of Oakland's best kept secrets - close to everything, quiet at night and genuinely a mixture of all lifestyles. A few blocks away in neighboring Clinton are several excellent neighborhood restaurants: Michelin recommended Champa Garden (Thai/Laotian) and Philomena (Pizza and Beer). Portal Restaurant and some of Oakland's best taco trucks are also nearby. Sunny all the time, it is a quick trip to Lake Merritt, the farmers' market and the excellent shopping at Lakeshore, as well as being close to the Glenview neighborhood, with the delights of Park Sushi, Bellanico and Park Burger.
