Welcome to The Ivy House, one of North Oakland’s most beautiful, sought-after, and iconic hidden gems. Bathed in natural light, this exquisite 1907 4BD/2BA home features an expansive storybook side and entry garden, full walk-up attic, detached rear storage workshop, and room after room of breathtaking original architectural details. Situated on the corner of one of NOBE’s most idyllic tree-lined blocks, this unforgettable home is sure to steal your heart.

Every corner of this extraordinary and thoughtfully designed home sparkles with elegance and charm, from the majestic 80-year-old date palms gracing its enchanting gardens to its soaring coved ceilings and beautifully preserved original moldings and hardwood floors. On the lower level, you will discover a series of elegant, open-feeling, interconnected common areas as well as the spacious vintage-inspired kitchen and adjacent full bath and mudroom.

The inviting upper level features four lovely bedrooms and an exciting surprise: a capacious walk-up attic space, spanning the entire length of the house and lined with built-in shelving for extra storage. Just outside, the vast meandering garden is both a haven for relaxation and a dream for entertaining. Replete with gently swaying trees and fragrant trumpet vines, it centers around a large and gently curving brick path and patio area. Informally known as The Oasis, this lush outdoor space imbues the entire property with an irresistible romance and charm.
