Fabulous bright bungalow perched on a serene cul-de-sac in the walkable Dimond district.
The front porch is a pleasant shaded outlook from which to greet neighbors strolling the neighborhood.
Two bedrooms and a bathroom are near at hand, with the primary suite at the rear of the house.
The broad living room has a grand updated picture window for gazing across neighborhood rooftops. Segue to the dining room with good space for future feasts and detailed built-in cabinets. Freshly refinished hardwood floorts stretch throughout these main rooms and first two bedrooms.
The sunny kitchen has been updated with quartz counters, big sink, and gleaming appliances. Laminate floors are modern and utilitarian.
Off the kitchen are two utility spaces, one for laundry and another that serves as office nook and pantry space.
Step from the office out to a terrific backyard with level patio, and from there a few steps up to a covered dining area set around a decorative brick chimney artifact.
The upper garden terrace is level and grassy, with fruit trees, large detached work shed, and small tool shed.
So much near at hand, including casual carpool, Farmer Joe's, Grand Lake Kitchen Dimond, Peet's, and much more!
The intersection of MacArthur Boulevard and Fruitvale Avenue is the heart of Oakland's Dimond neighborhood, one of the city's most up-and-coming enclaves.
The walkable neighborhood boasts several major banks, two major grocery stores, a pharmacy, and various mom-and-pop businesses, including the popular Grand Lake Kitchen.
Residents appreciate a branch of the Oakland Public Library, as well as Dimond Park and Dimond Recreation Center on Fruitvale Avenue.
The Dimond Improvement Association (DIA) is committed to making the tight-knit neighborhood “a vital, safe and beautiful place” for its residents and plans community events -- including the annual Oaktober festival.
Interstate 580 forms the neighborhood's southern border, a convenient perk for commuters. Those who prefer public transportation can use AC Transit's NL bus line, which runs down MacArthur Boulevard and offers transbay service to downtown San Francisco on both weekdays and weekends.
