SERIOUS BUYERS!!! LEASE Option to purchase! Please call or email agent for additional information.
This lovingly and completely restored 3 bedroom, 2.25 bathroom Haddon Hill craftsman offer architectural detail & character reminiscent of an earlier period, with the comfort and style of today. It is the home that we have all wanted to restore and have always dreamed of owning!
With permits it has received a full makeover: new roof; plumbing; electrical; tank less water heater; 2 zone heating system.
Marvel at all the fine details: the doorknobs, cabinet pulls of copper & every hinge. The double hung windows were all re-strung & the pulleys brass dipped for easy open & close.
The spacious kitchen has so much storage. A new sink, garbage disposal & dishwasher work in tandem with a classic Wedgewood stove. The butcher block counters provide plenty of space for preparing great meals.
The dining room can host many meals around the table entertaining family and friends ? and the built in sideboard and cabinets can showcase your best china and crystal.
An additional bathroom has been added to the main floor featuring Travertine tile floors, a vintage claw footed tub, new pedestal sink & all new fixtures. There is also a privacy wall to separate the toilet from the bathing area.
Don't miss the original fully functioning water closet on the back porch!
Each room upstairs is spacious enough to be its own sanctuary giving privacy & features walkin closets, a rarity in most older homes.
Additionally we have included architectural plans that easily add another 400 square feet of living space with an attic conversion.
The backyard has a covered lanai with a pathway made from the old foundation of the house. There is a small cottage/workshop for your gardening tools or art space!
Its located ony 1 block up from Lake Merritt & a short trip to Grand Ave & Lakeshore for shopping & dining plus easy access to both I-580 and I-880.

Zillow predicts Cleveland Heights home values will increase 3% next year, compared to a 7.1% increase for Oakland as a whole. Among Cleveland Heights homes, this home is valued 10.5% less than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 28.7% less per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Cleveland Heights, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 68.3% lower than in Oakland, and 53.9% lower than the national average. This lower local number could help Cleveland Heights home values rise more quickly than other regions in Oakland.
