We present a very special restoration of a classic Craftsman bungalow. Timeless modern finishes complement the traditional architectural details embedded throughout. The upstairs features a split level 2 bedroom/1 bathroom floor plan, includes an updated kitchen with tile floors and backsplash, stainless steel appliances and cozy breakfast nook, and feels light and airy at almost any hour of the day. A sun porch with original windows spanning three sides opens to an expansive Ipe deck ready for rest or a social gathering with friends. From the sun porch, the internal stairs down lead to the lower level - a generous, renovated guest suite with family room, full bathroom, and bedroom/den which includes an additional entrance via a heated garage/office. Combined, this multi-level home with over 2000 square feet of usable space has both charm and utility - a beautiful house that feels comfortable and private with plenty of storage to accommodate your gear or hobbies!

The rear south-exposed garden is a true oasis. Enjoy the explosion of blossoms in the early spring from a mature magnolia tree which turns a magnificent pink. Blue slate pavers under the branches create a beautiful outdoor room. Just outside the back door is a recently built Ipe deck with built in benches and gracious descent to the garden. Other mature trees include Japanese maple, Meyer lemon, ginkgo, and redbud. Planters are ready for your summer vegetable garden. All gardens are irrigated and low maintenance to ensure this is a yard you can easily enjoy!

Located in the Longfellow neighborhood and situated across the street from the Temescal Community Garden, this home is in one of the most convenient and accessible locations in the East Bay. Access all that North Oakland has to offer - stroll to Peets Coffee, Pizzaiolo, Burma Superstar, Cholita Linda, and Temescal shops. Ten minutes from downtown Berkeley and 10 minutes to downtown Oakland. Easy freeway access to SF.  MacArthur BART is less than a mile from the home. Commuter bus to SF is at the end of the block. Cross streets are bike boulevards.  You’ll treasure this home and location for years to come.
