Your Home

“A beautiful life begins at home” may as well be the motto of this 1940 English Tudor stunner, a house that enjoys pride of place in the coveted Upper Oakmore neighborhood, and wows from the moment you step over the threshold. A pleasing mix of original architectural details along with note worthy updates like the chef-worthy kitchen, have made this house a standout, while the continental good looks of the brick-and-timber Tudor facade ensures this home commands all the attention on the block.

Serving as both focal point and artistic light source in the living room, the diamond paned bay window creates an oasis of luminosity. A sophisticated white brick clad fireplace is flanked by a niche adorned with additional diamond paned window detail and storage space, yet another charming reminder of the architectural era. An open glass pass-through leads to the light-filled family room, where a painted brick wall highlights the modern electric fireplace and floor-to-ceiling book shelves, while a wall of windows and French doors allow the space to spill out onto a stone terrace and gardens. The formal dining room also opens to the family room, with space enough to gather family and friends around the table, brimming with character courtesy of the original corner built-ins, perfect for displaying your treasures.

The simple yet elegant kitchen is filled with stand-alone stars like the Miele coffee station and oven. The stone countertops meld with the white design details, with the tile, cabinetry and built-in paneled fridge, to create a crisp-yet-warm cook’s kitchen. The eat-in bar seating creates an ideal spot for coffee and conversation, and the large box bay window above the sink calls for an herb garden. Beyond the kitchen lies a spacious guest bath, with wood floors and a classic pedestal sink, and a laundry room kitted out with Electrolux washer and dryer, along with plenty of storage and work space. Access to the attached garage is a practical luxury not always found in 1940s homes, simplifying everyday errands.

Wood clad stairs lead up to a landing and through an arched doorway to the first bedroom, warm and sunny, distinguished by interesting ceiling angles and architectural cut-outs providing cozy niches beneath the windows. Another set of diamond-paned windows cast alluring light as the stairway leads to the second floor with a substantial newel post banister ushering the way. A second spacious bedroom with window niche and built-in drawers shares the hall with a luxe marble bath — elegant pedestal sink, tub, and walk-in shower inhabit a large light-filled space with a window overlooking the greenery of the back yard. The master bedroom is warm and welcoming, with an impressive walk-in closet, complete with built-in dresser, thoughtful storage and dressing table. Plush and private, the grey and white marble-clad en suite bath is spacious and bright, creating a superb master suite.

The pièce de résistance of this gorgeous home just might be the outdoor spaces. The front yard, with its wide expanse of lawn hugging the brick pathways, Japanese maples, manicured English hedges, and beautifully landscaped details leading to an espaliered pear tree at the front door — and the back yard, which embodies the rich indoor/outdoor connections so sought after in our California climate. Creating a splendid setting for entertaining, the tiled patio with a gas fire pit beautifully blends with the upper-level lawn for function and flexibility, while wisteria decorates a gazebo to create a magical dining area, and a few steps away the outdoor kitchen makes open-air entertaining a breeze. The lush plantings and mature trees provide privacy and a sense of enclosure in this very livable outdoor space.

The coveted Oakmore location is an ideal mix of quiet comfort and area amenities, offering easy access to great food, green spaces, cultural offerings and commute options. 

Oakmore

Oakmore Neighborhood

The Oakmore neighborhood is a mix of quiet comfort and urban amenities, and despite being a part of the big city, Oakmore feels like a small town. Nearby Park Boulevard is home to a vibrant mix of restaurants and shops; Dimond Park has a pool, a playground, Sausal Creek with its walking trail. If you need to hit the road, there is convenient access to casual carpool, AC Transit, and highways. Pretty streets, interesting architecture, a strong community, and easy walkability make Oakmore a neighborhood residents are glad to call home.
