Active $895,000 List Price - Single Family Home
Located in the Golden Gate neighborhood of Oakland, 975 Arlington is a beautifully renovated and lushly landscaped 3BD/1BA, 1101 square foot Bungalow with a welcoming blend of modern, updated kitchen and baths and vintage features including hardwood floors, high ceilings, traditional built-ins, and wainscoting with plate rails.
The gracious living room is embraced by a bay window overlooking the front garden, and a second bay window casts an afternoon glow on the spacious formal dining room with its coffered ceiling, original fireplace, and built-in hutch.
Stylishly remodeled with stone countertops and glass tile backsplash, the cook’s kitchen is a bright, open space with sash and clerestory windows, and distinctive pendant lights that shine above the stone-topped island/breakfast bar. Frosted glass doors open to reveal a laundry closet with a stacking washer and dryer, and a convenient back door opens onto the rear porch and lush rear garden.
On the other side of the home, the light-filled primary bedroom includes a large closet with a built-in organizer, and two additional bedrooms each have their own charming features. The bedrooms share a generous modern bath with decorative tile floor, shower over soaking tub, and modern stone-topped vanity for storage.
Verdant front and rear gardens offer a profusion of flowers, shrubs, and trees – all planted with the seasons in mind so that something is always blooming. The Napa Valley-inspired rear garden is a lush retreat shaded by a Japanese maple, New Zealand tree fern, and smoke tree. A flagstone patio and charming deck are surrounded by climbing vines, brilliant salvias, poppies, and a variety of flowering bushes and shrubs.
Conveniently located for commuters driving or using public transportation, the home is also just minutes from Temescal Creek Park & Playground, the Emeryville organic garden, park and greenway, and a variety of bike trails. The home is also near many excellent dining choices in Oakland and Berkeley to suit every mood – from the casual Doyle Street Cafe to the legendary Chez Panisse, and everything in between.
