California Dreaming...

Situated on a sizeable corner lot, the front yard beckons with low maintenance cacti and palms while the back and side yards await your urban farm, meandering garden, or lavish lounge space. Passing through the new redwood fence and strolling up the front walk will have you catching feelings of a peaceful oasis. Inside clean, bright spaces are flooded with abundant natural light from all sides of this darling Laurel District bungalow.

Step through the front threshold and be transported to a home as sweet as any desert darling. Effectively efficient, no space is wasted in this cozy cottage. Reading by the decorative fireplace will be as comfortable as working from home, hosting an intimate gathering, or a sunny celebration outside. Updates throughout the home were chosen with loving care and quality in mind.

The kitchen’s new red oak hardwood floors are perfectly offset by the freshly painted magazine style cabinets, rich in color and accented by CB2 brushed brass hardware which anchor the open shelves ready to display your favorite curated displays. Updated stainless steel appliances and granite counters will have you luxuriating as you try new recipes or prep appetizers for your closest friends and family.

The two breezy bedrooms feature generous closets, sun soaked windows, and an extension of the home’s hardwood floors. Whether you choose to use the second bedroom as a guest room, home office, or it belongs to a member of the household, the shared updated bathroom will be enjoyed by all. The large, walk-in shower is enclosed by frameless glass and white tiles stretch uninterrupted from floor to ceiling. The penny tile shower pan and niche add a touch of black and white glamour. Stepping out onto the sumptuous marble tiled floor, you’ll appreciate the custom fixtures, new fan, and updated electrical. Off-street parking and a detached garage await your creative ideas, art studio or garden room possibilities.

Abundant amenities are just down the road, making meeting up with friends, clients, or colleagues a stroll away at local favorites World Grounds, Sequoia Diner, or Communite. Shopping for hard to find ingredients is easy with two Farmer Joe’s stores nearby -- the closest less than a quarter mile from your doorstep. Skip the trip to Home Depot and get local help at the Laurel Ace Hardware, barely more than a quarter mile away. While you’re there, alleviate any stress with some yoga at neighborhood Anasa or a pint at Degrees Plato Taproom & Bottleshop. However you choose to relax, picking up some Everett & Jones BBQ or Phnom Penh on the way home is a sure way to end a day feeling full. Should your daily commute take you away from home, Fruitvale BART is two miles away and can take you wherever you need to go. If driving is your drag, highways 580 and 13 are moments away and ready to whisk you off to any destination. The Laurel is a thriving and growing community, no greater representation of its growth and vibrancy can be seen than the annual Laurel Street Fair, just like this darling home, you won’t want to miss out on it!
