Wonderful California Craftsman in one of the hottest neighborhoods in Oakland. This large and wonderful home has been meticulously updated while preserving the original craftsman charm with large bay windows to provide ample natural lighting. The beautiful hardwood floors greet you as you enter the front door through the front porch with the arched entryway and you're immediately captivated by the statement of the box-beamed ceilings. The fireplace has been custom designed for stereo/TV components and wired for surround sound and fiber optic internet. You enter through a large entryway with pocket doors into the formal dining room which continues the dramatic box-beamed ceilings, wainscoting and the timeless quality light fixtures gracing the ceilings. The large eat-in kitchen features lovely newer walnut cabinets, full mosaic tiled backsplash, recessed lighting and stainless steel appliances. There is a large basement and a newer earthquake retrofitted foundation.
