$1,200,000 771 Alcatraz Ave, Oakland, CA 94609
Out each window of this charming 1910 Craftsman you see green: the sprawling juniper out the front windows, ferns and purple flowers out the dining room, leafy trees from the back office. It feels calm, private, and quiet even though the amenities of Oakland and Berkeley surround: get coffee, pastry, or pizza down the block at Nick's, or try the Vault Cafe around the corner. Easy access to BART, the UC campus, Shattuck, College Ave., yet you are secluded and nestled, perched above it all. First impressions of this cozy home are high ceilings and gorgeous wood floors with inlaid detail. Abundant large windows make the spaces feel light, bright, and contemporary. The kitchen is a dream combining vintage and modern: Italian Bertazzoni stove, Liebherr refrigerator, large island workspace, and a combination of original cabinets with new flooring that all just works. The interior staircase makes for easy access to the bonus room, exercise space, storage, and potential tandem garage. The flexible floor plan offers something for everyone. The pretty back garden is complete with stone pavers and a raised vegetable bed perfect for entertaining, relaxing in the quiet or working from home.
