A beautifully maintained single level 3BD/1BA 1170 sq ft Craftsman Bungalow in the heart of the Millsmont neighborhood of Oakland, 5929 Mauritania is filled with natural light and features an open living area, a recently updated and stylish eat-in chef’s kitchen, enchanting yard and remodeled modern bath. The beautifully landscaped backyard is an entertainer’s dream with its spacious deck and shaded patio, and a detached garage has been converted for use as a generous studio, office, or game room. Near Concordia Park, Mills College, and public transportation options.
Beyond the front yard, beautifully landscaped with river rock and drought-resistant plants, wide steps lead up to the deep pillared porch, which runs the width of the house. Partially enclosed on one end by multi-pane windows, and on the other by a trellis of fragrant wisteria – creating a tranquil spot to put your feet up and enjoy your morning coffee or laze away a weekend afternoon.
The spacious living room features gleaming hardwood floors, double front windows overlooking the porch, and a brick fireplace flanked by high windows. The living room extends to the generously proportioned dining room with a period-style built-in corner hutch.
Filled with natural light, the eat-in chef’s kitchen has been newly remodeled, featuring stone countertops and backsplash, a Fisher & Paykel gas range, stainless steel appliances, and abundant cabinets. The vintage built-in spice cabinet and deep pantry provide ample space to maintain a well-stocked kitchen, and a butcher block counter extension offers additional storage space and exposed shelves to display your favorite serving pieces or collectibles. Convenient for entertaining, a windowed door opens onto the expansive redwood deck, making it easy to carry drinks or hors d’oeuvres out to your guests for a perfect summer afternoon soaking up the sun.
The home boasts three bedrooms, each with its own charming features and oversized windows. Lined with multi-pane windows that catch the afternoon sun, the bedroom off the kitchen could easily be configured as a solarium, office, or study.
Gorgeously remodeled, the stylish bath features a tile floor and stone-topped vanity. The shower over tub is lined with polished subway tile with a luxurious ceiling-mounted rain showerhead and additional handheld showerhead.
The enchanting enclosed backyard features a recently built railed redwood deck ideal for a summer party or barbecue, and the patio below is shaded by an overhead terrace.
