5927 Marshall Street, Oakland
Introducing 5927 Marshall, a fashionably bold bungalow-style home in Oakland’s Golden Gate neighborhood, one of the East Bay’s best-kept secrets. Originally built in 1919, this 3 bedroom, 2 bath property boasts an eclectic and sophisticated aesthetic, reenvisioned by its current owners with contemporary features to complement and transform the original look and feel.
The front entry opens into the main living and formal dining areas, seamless and spacious with tasteful slate-colored walls and original hardwood flooring. A large picture window offers great views of the quiet, tucked-away street. Recessed ceiling lighting adds a chic touch juxtaposed with the more traditional elements of the original brick fireplace and crown molding. The dining area is lined with side windows, creating a great atmosphere for formal and casual occasions alike.
The home’s eat-in kitchen has been completely remodeled and updated, with all stainless steel Whirlpool appliances, including French door refrigerator, dishwasher, and stove. Slate flooring, colorful glass tile backsplash, quartz countertop, modern fixtures, and ample cabinetry make this a vibrant and delightful spot. Also negotiable is a sit-to-stand-on-demand station custom built using reclaimed wood from UC Berkeley Memorial Stadium. This flexible setup works great as a breakfast table, bar, or prep table.
Hardwood flooring continues through the two spacious front bedrooms—one of which offers front and side views, while the other looks toward the back garden. Both include roomy closets. The full hall bath has been entirely updated, with beautiful hex tile, glass-paned shower, and contemporary fixtures that give a freshly modern feel. A generously-sized linen closet nearby provides added storage and convenience.
The home’s impressive master suite is bright and airy, boasting two reading nooks/seating areas, and windows in three directions. The master bath is smart and stylish, with hex tilework and all-modern fixtures. From the bedroom, you’ll enjoy opening the glass-paned door and stepping out into the incredible backyard sanctuary.
Private and lush with vegetation, the rear garden is an enviable retreat. With raised beds, pathway lanterns, and multiple seating areas throughout, you can watch the sunset, look up at the stars, or have a great time entertaining guests. Succulents populate modern-style wooden planters, a lemon tree, Japanese maple, and grasses grow nearby, while flowering vines and jasmine twine along the perimeter. Also negotiable are the ultra-modern umbrella and patio furniture.
The home’s wide front porch offers a lovely seating area at which to take in the neighborhood, and listen to birdsong. Dual planter urns elegantly frame the steps, and the front garden bed is fully landscaped with succulents and flowering plants.
Also featured is a single car detached garage with Whirlpool washer and dryer. The driveway offers tandem parking for two, with an additional space in front and off-street parking. Other amenities include new exterior paint and dual pane windows, and completely redone electrical.
Marshall Street’s neighborhood vibe is friendly and engaged, with strong community watch and NextDoor involvement. Enjoy easy commuter access, nearby cafes and restaurants like Doyle Street Cafe, Townhouse, and Farley’s, as well as Emeryville Public Market and Bay Street shopping. Numerous parks and scenic trails are close by, including the Berkeley Aquatic Park, Bay Trail, and Emeryville Marina.
