loading your dream home...
The stately home on the corner of Broadway and Lawton that you’ve always admired and dreamt about now welcomes you in all it’s glory. A true pillar of Rockridge architectural history, this Georgian beauty started its life across the street in 1908, before it moved to the iconic spot where it now resides.
Everything about this home is grand! Sunlight fills the expansive rooms through countless windows, highlighting the gorgeous high boxbeam and coved ceilings and newly refinished hardwood floors. Original details blend seamlessly with modern updates in every room.
Notice the ornate detail on the upstairs balcony windows as it corresponds to the italienate carvings on the Rockridge Blvd pillars below.
Both handsome fireplaces have been upgraded with gas inserts for cozy nights by the fire, but the central A/C is sure to be appreciated right now.
Three sunrooms off the living room and two of the upstairs bedrooms provide additional flex space for changing needs.
Fully updated kitchen blends modern sophistication with original charm and character, and with Market Hall just blocks away, finding meal inspiration will never be a problem.
Rarely found in Rockridge homes, not one, but two lush yards! Plenty of room to relax and play, and hone your green thumb in the veggie and herb beds. One side offers an enormous lawn - a blank slate for your outdoor dreams, while the other is right off the kitchen, and perfect for enjoying outdoor dining and making pizza in the custom wood fire pizza oven (sellers' favorite recipes included).
Another Rockridge rarity - a two car garage! Room for your car, tools, bikes, and seasonal toys...
Meander over to College avenue to enjoy all the wonderful restaurants, cafés, and shopping, or take a picnic to nearby Lake Temescal - one of Oakland's many nature gems. Even closer is the grassy neighborhood park at the end of Rockridge Blvd. So much to explore right outside your door.
Property lies within the coveted Chabot Elementary School zone.
Commuting is a breeze when you can hop on Highway 24, or take advantage of public transportation with Rockridge BART is just 5 blocks away!
