My Notes

Stately Maxwell Park District Home

Located at 2839 Modesto Avenue, Oakland
Built in 1922, this vintage Craftsman style home located in the trendy Maxwell Park District of Oakland is situated with a view over-looking the bay. This home can be described as updated, elegant, spacious, yet maintains its authentic architectural detail with sunny and cheerful rooms! This home is very different than the typical Maxwell Park homes.
The pleasant view and location are top-notch! This home is less than a half-mile from Mills College with excellent nearby shopping in the Laurel District and transit availability. On bus line to BART, downtown Oakland and San Francisco from High Street and MacArthur Blvd.
Briefly, this stunning 2 plus bedroom and 2 full bath home has approximately 11342 interior sqft and there is a basement offering slightly more room. The interior design is compliments the house. The main living area is separated from the kitchen. The bedrooms are located off a separate hallway from the dining and living rooms. That means nice privacy for the bedrooms. Off the rear bedroom there is a plus room suitable for a study, nursery, game or hobby room. The semi-finished basement makes for a great home office, playroom or additional storage area. This home offers near level-in design to the entry hall with fireplace, living room, formal dining room with built-in china hutch, spacious modern kitchen with breakfast nook. The kitchen has granite counter tops, stainless appliances including a modern free-standing range/oven, dishwasher, disposal, and lots of oak cabinet space and a breakfast nook. The laundry (appliances included) is in the kitchen area.
You will appreciate the abundance of natural sunlight from the many windows. The hardwood floors gleam from the sunlight. There is a small deck off the kitchen leading to the rear yard, basement, and driveway. The rear yard is gated for safety and privacy. The rear yard has lawn and privacy bushes and is quite comfortable for bbq?s and gatherings. There is a driveway but no garage. There is also good street parking.
