$1,400,000 5556 Griffin St, Oakland, CA 94605

Modern lines define this cool 1966 Leona Heights home framed by giant oaks, succulents galore, roses, and citrus. Sharing a cul-de-sac where neighbors meet for occasional drinks and kids play basketball, this home allows for socialization or complete privacy. Although minutes from freeway access, the property is refreshingly quiet and the serene surroundings of the back garden encourage staying put. However, downtown Montclair is nearby for dinners out, and hiking trails abound. Enormous palms frame the sleek tile entryway, adding to the midcentury feel. Inside, the open-plan living room is bathed in light from a wall of floor-to-ceiling glass doors to the garden. The connecting kitchen has a thoughtful design that minimizes appliances, plus the attached garage makes bringing in groceries a breeze. The bedrooms on either side of the spacious bathroom have loads of closet space and bright views to greenery outside. The third bedroom, or luxurious home office, overlooks the front deck.
