Located in the heart of Longfellow, this warm, inviting home has been updated for modern living. There are two bedrooms, 1.5 baths, lots of upgrades, new systems and a large bonus space. 

The open living room, dining room, and kitchen are light-filled and inviting. Hard wood floors throughout creates a seamless flow. The completely new kitchen has plenty of storage space, new appliances, plus the convenience of a built-in washer and dryer. 

There are two bedrooms with huge closets, big bright windows, and wood floors. The all-new bathroom is stylish and roomy.

HUGE BONUS + POTENTIAL: The downstairs is prime for expansion. This roughly 1,000 sq.ft. area is fully finished and has a half bathroom with easy potential for a full bath. There is an interior staircase from the main level and exterior access. You’ll find endless uses for this space. 

The back and side yard are a gardener’s dream: two raised beds have been filled with veggies, herbs, and butterfly-friendly plants. There is a lime tree full of blooms for the next crop. The patio area is perfect for outside dining and relaxing. 

Take advantage of the central N. Oakland/Emeryville border location to get where you need to go easily. You’re only blocks away from Macarthur BART (12 min. walking) and shuttles. There is easy access to hwys 24/580. You are very close to Temescal and Emeryville amenities such as shopping, dining, parks, library, and the farmer’s market.

Visiting her home town of Oakland, Gertrude Stein said, “There’s no there there.” With all the changes over the past decade, Oakland has finally become a destination of its own. The Uptown Project, Jerry Brown’s 10K Housing Initiative, new housing development and the rising value of condominiums, lofts and single-family homes have contributed to Downtown Oakland’s success.

Downtown is the heart of Oakland, and the city’s changes are most evident here. San Francisco Magazine named it "the" place to live and play. The area now offers all the benefits of other metropolitan centers. Civic and cultural centers, residential and retail buildings—both new and historic—are focused around Oakland's City Center which features an on-site BART station.

A unique area is Old Oakland. Surrounding Washington Street, old town features Swan’s Market, a farmer’s market and many upscale bars and restaurants. Some of which include Levende East, Tamarindo Antojeria, B Restaurant, The Trappist, Cafe 817, Cock A Doodle Cafe and Air Lounge. The city’s art scene and nightlife have flourished as more and more people migrate to the area. Good times can always be had at Luka’s Taproom, Flora, The Uptown and Maxwell’s Lounge. Caffe Verbena and LeCheval are also city favorites. And classic performance halls like the Paramount Theater and Fox Theatre make for an exciting night out on the town.
