Okay, the backyard ? there is something very special about this space. It is south facing so it is drenched in sun light most of the day. But there is more to it! Maybe the openness make the space feel bigger than it is, with a nice view of the sky all around. It really is quiet and very peaceful. The yard is really big enough for play space and a garden for flowers and veggies. There is mature landscaping in place but there is still room for your own green thumb to play.
The lower floor features a delightful 1 bedroom/1 bathroom In-Law apartment. It is currently vacant and ready for any of a million uses. Do you need/want some extra income? This apartment should rent easily and for top dollar. Maybe you have an extended family that needs space? Of course, if you need a real office so you can get away from the clatter in the house, then you can run your empire from here, as well. Art studio, craft workshop, or many other uses might also work for you. In addition to the apartment there is plenty of storage and workshop space in the rest of the 1st floor.
The owners have loved living here and cared for this home, making many upgrades. In fact, they loved living on 61st St. so much that they only moved a few houses away! I am told the Annual Block Party is one of the best in the area.
Rockridge stretches along College Avenue from Broadway up to the Berkeley border at Ashby (where you will find us here at Lawton Associates, by the way). The neighborhood stretches west to spoon with Temescal and eastward up the hills for magnificent views of the bay. Whether you reside in a Craftsman on Cavour or a chalet on Chabot, you are never far from the action on College Avenue.
And by action on College Avenue, we mean some of the hottest shops and restaurants in the Bay Area. Has the foodie press stopped raving about Wood Tavern? No they have not, but they are also busy touting A Cote, Oliveto, and of course Zachary?s, the best pizza you will ever eat. And, if you aren?t getting your freshly made pasta, organic produce, butchered meat, and piping hot pastries from Market Hall?well, you should be. And when you are ready to relax and watch the world go by, you can hang with cool cats at Cole Coffee, possibly the best roast this side of the bay.
Rockridge came into its own in the 1970s when the BART station opened and the Caldecott Tunnel provided better access to Walnut Creek and beyond. Many neighborhood institutions from the 70s and before are still beloved destinations, such as Chimes Pharmacy.
In addition to BART, there are so many public transportation options that you may never get in your car again. AC Transit has the uber-handy 51 line taking you from downtown Oakland to Berkeley. The ?casual carpool? has several neighborhood pick-up spots, as do car-sharing services City Car Share and ZipCar. And, of course, the neighborhood is perfect for walking, strolling, rolling, biking, hopping, crawling and every other motion you can think of.
The people of Rockridge are heartily committed to community building, as evidenced each year at the Rockridge Out & About Street Fair. The foodies come out weekly for the nearby Temescal Farmers
