Overview

Oakland House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This 1927 Arts & Crafts Mediterranean-style house is wonderful for relaxing and for entertaining, with its.large livingroom and separate dining room (expandable table to seat c. 10). The kitchen is good-sized and recently redone. A sunroom at the back is adjacent to a separate breakfast room with sliding glass door to cozy deck overlooking Asian-style landscaped, enclosed pocket garden. The second bedroom also works as a good-sized office with French doors opening onto a small balcony in front (this no doubt functioned as a sleeping porch 'back in the day').

The house is.nicely located: very close to Piedmont Avenue's restaurants and shops; just up from an expansive Whole Foods; just above Lake Merritt. The MacArthur BART station is not far away, and easy access to the 580 fwy puts San Francisco within easy reach and provides a really expeditious route to Berkeley as well as points South.

Keywords: well-located, fully equipped, beautifully detailed Arts and Crafts

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

About The Owner

Academic (historian), long-time resident of the Bay Area who is only here part-time now. Third-generation Californian. Graduate of Mills College and UC Berkeley.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Oakland

This is an exquisite example of Arts and Crafts architecture, which is my very favorite style. Growing up in California, I had always wanted to live in such a house.

What makes this house unique

The house is ideally located to take advantage of restaurants, theatre, opera and shopping in San Francisco, as well as similar offerings in Oakland and Berkeley. (Berkeley is only about a 10-minute drive away; San Francisco about twice that long, in non-commute times.) Having Lake Merritt so close makes it easy to picnic, walk around the lake, etc.

Well situaded

What we liked was the full kitchen with a gas stove because we like to cook. We also appreciated coming back to park in a driveway. Roomy and spacey and lots of natural light. Enjoyed the intimacy of the patio. Arts and crafts décor.

Lovely

  • 4 of 5
Beautifully appointed, excellent space convenient to lots of East Bay -close to highway entrance and exit. Would stay there again. Only deficiency, no windows have shades or curtains. Hard to sleep once sun rises. Otherwise, very suitable for a couple.

A beautiful and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5
The photos of this home do not do it justice. It is beautifully decorated and appointed and was perfect for our Christmas week visit with our kids. Very convenient to the freeway and to San Francisco in a hip area of up-and-coming Oakland at a reasonable price. We enjoyed sitting on the cozy sun porch watching TV and reading in the mornings. We would definitely rent this home again when in the SF Bay area.

The perfect place for a San Francisco visitor

  • 5 of 5
We arrived to find a place that exceeded our expectations. A beautiful house, with art deco charm, and ideally located as a base for accessing San Francisco, Berkeley, and Oakland itself. The house was quiet, delightful, and ideal for two older people travelling with a daughter and her partner. We will be back!

A lovely place to stay for our holiday.

  • 5 of 5
The house is of the highest standard - clean, comfortable and homely. All the rooms are a very good size, with the space to spend quality time, relax and enjoy the peaceful neighbourhood. It is well equipped throughout. The location was extremely handy for touring the sights of San Francisco. Convenient too for the shops in Piedmont Avenue. The neighbours were very friendly also. We would definitely recommend it for everyone. Thank you.
