Modern Lifestyle and Design in the Perfect East Bay Location

Rocking on the front porch and greeting neighbors that pass by may be a dream for some, however it's definitely reality at 785 65TH STREET in Oakland’s idyllic Bushrod neighborhood. Here is a unique property with two homes. The main house is a 3 bedroom 2 bath fully renovated Craftsman bungalow plus a brand new modern in-law cottage located on a rare quiet street in an area that is simply close to everything that makes living in the East Bay so great.

The beautiful front home was recently renovated utilizing superior construction and unparalleled craftsmanship by local design/built team Next Level Architecture. With its semi-formal entry spilling into the great room which spans the full length of the home, the space is elegant, warm and inviting.

The living room, with its tiled fireplace, flows to the dining area. This in turn leads to the thoroughly modern kitchen with its grand white quartz counters and massive custom cherry and walnut center island. Complete with high end appliances and features, cooking and entertaining in this home is bliss as everybody can be in the same space cooking and relaxing together.

The master bedroom is expansive and features a large walk-in closet and thoroughly modern bath. Dual sinks, glass encased rain shower, and free standing tub and stylish tile and wallpaper make this space a haven. The two additional bedrooms in the home are perfect and both have large closets and share the second bath.

But the real treat of this property is in the garden where you find a completely separate brand new one bedroom, one bath cottage. With modern finishes, high ceilings and skylights, this space could be a delightful in-law unit, perfect as a private rental, or treated as an extension of the main house creating a family room and guest bedroom. The property is such a fabulous opportunity, is just two blocks to the Ashby Bart Station and is near shopping, cafes and restaurants.

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.
