About this home's










Cheery Rockridge hideaway encompassing 1,507 Square Feet nestled behind two mature oak trees in an incredible location only two blocks from College Avenue. One of the most unique offerings to hit the market in years, this unique retreat is a urban dweller’s dream with a two-bedroom, two bathroom front house and a delightful one bedroom, one bathroom cottage in the back with a shared-yet-private yard and garden space. If you want to be inspired in an urban location, this is the place to be. An inviting front patio area and porch with porch swing set the stage for the life that awaits inside. Natural light beams throughout the front house via abundant skylights while the floor-plan naturally unfolds with an open living room and dining area set off of the kitchen overlooking the deck. The deck opens to the garden, a horticulturist’s playground with interesting and established plants and fruit trees. Two ensuite bedrooms with walk-in closets are ideal for roommate arrangements, or people who want a room suitable for guests, or private office space. An updated kitchen has been brightened with new quartz countertops, paint and modern matte black fixtures. Oak hardwood throughout gives the entire space cohesion as original details heighten the home’s character. A private outdoor dining area could also accommodate a future hot tub — as it once did in a former life. The fully detached private rear cottage contains a small loft-style bedroom space, bath, full kitchen, dining area, sitting area and living room with French doors opening to the outdoors. Exposed wood beamed ceiling and other character touches infuse this space with warmth. Both buildings have laundry areas with a washer / dryer combo and tankless water heaters. A long driveway offers off-street parking for multiple cars. With a walk score of 93, you’ll be mere steps to the heart of everything in Rockridge, Oakland and beyond!
