CLASSIC CHARACTER, MODERN STYLE
This handsome brown-shingled home is classic outside and simple and smart inside. Built in 1912, it has been thoroughly updated to create a home of charm and style. Maple, jasmine and succulents grace the newly-landscaped front yard, adding to its curb appeal.
Upon entering, architectural details such as arched windows, coved ceilings, stained glass and pocket doors are some of the original features. A big dining room connects to the kitchen, creating an open, inviting space for easy entertaining. Off the kitchen is a convenient pantry/mudroom that leads outside to the back yard.
A nice-sized bedroom in the back has a large window that captures the afternoon light, and overlooks the garden. Up a step and through French doors is another light-filled bedroom, which could also be purposed as an office or nursery. Down the hall is the master suite, bright and airy, with a graceful bay window and an en-suite bathroom.
The expansive back yard is a blank canvas waiting for inspiration! Deep and sunny, it has so much potential - as an urban oasis, a grassy lawn, or planted with rows of cutting flowers to fill vases inside. Trees around the perimeter bring lots of privacy, and a bricked patio is a sweet spot to savor the quiet and enjoy the greenery. A laundry space and a roomy basement offer lots of storage.
The location is another plus: Clinton is an exciting and emerging Eastlake neighborhood - close to everything, quiet at night and genuinely a mixture of all lifestyles and architecture - with turn of the century Victorian homes nestled among Craftsman and modern houses. Sunny all the time, it is a quick trip to Lake Merritt, the Farmers' Market and the excellent shopping at Lakeshore, is near to the delights of Park Boulevard, and is home to several excellent restaurants. Easy freeway access and ready public transportation makes commuting a breeze.
This engaging home has all you need: a great street presence; a good location; a big, lovely yard, and lots of charm to share with friends and family.
