Magical 12,000-SF setting with two completely private detached single-family homes provides a perfect family or community compound, tucked away in a verdant landscape that screens out the bustle of Oakland. Through the gated entrance lies a vintage Spanish Mediterranean with a majestic cathedral-ceilinged great room befitting your most extravagant entertaining or live/work dreams. Follow the path through a second gate to the most charming Craftsman cottage you can imagine, both homes with their own private yards and multiple outdoor living spaces. Known as The Oasis, your beautiful, private, secure and conveniently located campus is one block from Highland Hospital, just off MacArthur Blvd, walkable to Dimond district attractions, and an easy drive, AC transit or BART ride to OAK and SF.
The 2176 SF main house opens through 5 sets of arched French doors to gardens, decks and a courtyard-like yard. Overlooking the grand community room is your private living space, with a smaller fireplaced living room, huge formal dining room, quaint cook’s kitchen, breakfast room and laundry-mudroom leading to both a private side yard and rear decks spanning the length of the property. The 952-SF cottage is a Craftsman-era gem tucked in the trees to the rear of the lot with a fireplaced living room, bedroom, two full baths, and central kitchen open to family room (sometimes used as a second bedroom), Walls of sliding glass doors open to an expansive wrap-around deck. Lovely outdoor spaces offer both shade and sun. Perfect for a multi-generational family, the property previously housed four to five unrelated occupants, living together without feeling crowded.
A 2-story tall bonus space off the great room in the main house offers possibilities for additional bedrooms and rec space. The enormous garage is an opportunity for further development -- this offering includes architectural plans and a feasibility study for adding two condo-style units.
