LOVELY INSIDE AND OUT

This lovely 1940 bungalow has all you need: good looks, a great location, a lovely yard and some nice extras waiting to be enjoyed. A smartly landscaped front yard sets off a solid, handsome street presence. Inside, an airy, open living room has an oversized picture window with big sky views that brings in lots of light. A brick fireplace and warm hardwood floors bring even more warmth.

The kitchen has classic tile around the sink and wonderful period fixtures, with butcher block countertops on either side. The dining room off the kitchen is bright from both south and west-facing windows. By the kitchen are stairs leading down to a wonderful bonus area that could be ideal as a family room, media space, art studio, home office or guest accommodations. This downstairs space also has a large laundry room that includes a laundry sink and a toilet (potential for half bath?), and there is a door to the side yard that could be used as a separate entry. 

This level also provides access to a rare two-car garage with incredible storage, and a generous driveway that offers plenty of off-street parking.

In the back, two bedrooms have a nicely preserved vintage-style bathroom and linen closet between them. The bedrooms both have views of the sizable, tree-filled back yard, and one of the rooms has a back door that opens out to the pretty, terraced garden. The yard’s upper level has an open patio - the perfect setup for barbecuing and dining alfresco - and large, raised, irrigated beds waiting to be filled with vegetables and herbs for a potager. Citrus, fruit and other leafy trees provide plenty of shade. The side yard is also spacious and filled with potential. Neighboring palm trees swaying overhead set a carefree mood. It’s a private, quiet space that will surely become a favorite retreat.

Bella Vista is one of Oakland's best kept secrets - close to everything, quiet at night and genuinely a mixture of all lifestyles, it is also home to several excellent neighborhood restaurants. Sunny all the time, it is a quick trip to Lake Merritt, the farmers' market and the excellent shopping at Lakeshore, and is near to the delights of Park Boulevard’s restaurants and stores.
