There’s a courtyard in Oakland with flowering bushes, a Japanese maple, and a picnic table where surrounding neighbors from 4 apartments meet and drink cocktails. Down the street there is Farmer Joe’s organic market, and a new fine-dining restaurant, Bombera. built in an old firehouse that everyone is abuzz about. The neighborhood has an Octoberfest every year, and nearby BART and 580 make commuting easy. From your private deck you can see the Bay, but mostly you see big maple trees and feel a breeze. This home is a nest you’ll want to stay in. Enter into a spacious living room with wood-burning fireplace and views of the surrounding hills from this third-floor perch. The well-appointed kitchen features custom wood cabinetry and stone counters, stainless appliances. Down the hall find in-unit laundry, updated bath with new tile, and two sizeable bedrooms. One Garage parking spot and one on the driveway, fresh paint, and warm original hardwood floors throughout.
