Oakland House Rental Photos and Description

3-BR Craftsman On Peaceful Street Close To Bart, Rockridge And Piedmont Ave

New to the rental market in one of Oakland's most desirable neighborhoods! Charming 3-bedroom craftsman on a peaceful, tree-lined residential street within walking distance to the numerous shops and the top-rated restaurants of both Piedmont Avenue and the trendy Rockridge neighborhoods and close to the Rockridge BART subway. Just 2 miles away is another shopping and dining destination, the Temescal area.

This light-filled bungalow features separate living and dining rooms with the original built-ins and French doors, wi-fi, cable TV, linens, a fully equipped, remodelled kitchen with cookware, utensils, table settings, and a dishwasher, and a washer and dryer off of the kitchen. The large and private backyard features a deck, a patio with comfortable dining and lounging furniture, and a lush garden where, depending on the season, you can pick apples, figs, apricots, lemons, oranges, blueberries, and strawberries; hummingbirds constantly dart in and out of the salvias, abutilons and cape honeysuckle. There is plenty of parking in the non-metered street or park in the driveway. The weather is sunny and warm most of the year.

Safeway, CVS and Starbucks are conveniently located 2 blocks away; continue down College Avenue to reach Rockridge BART; downtown San Francisco is 20 minutes by BART or car, UC Berkeley is 3 miles away and California College of Arts is 4 blocks away. Quick access to many freeways (80, 880, 980, 580, 24) and the Bay Bridge. Using the nearby bus, BART, or auto you have convenient access to all that the East Bay has to offer, including beautiful hiking and biking trails, a burgeoning restaurant scene in the surrounding Temescal, Rockridge, and Piedmont Avenue neighborhoods, and the cultural offerings of both Oakland and Berkeley.

After being raised in the South Bay and living many years in Manhattan, I discovered the treasures of Oakland and the East Bay and have happily settled down here.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for our son and his family. It was perfect, especially the enclosed yard for young children and the open layout of the house. The photos revealed the charming and picturesque craftsman home that it is. It was tastefully decorated and very clean--a gracious setting for friends and family members to visit. The yards are beautifully planted and tended and our grandchildren delighted in watching the neighbor's chickens (they only quietly clucked to themselves). The delightful neighborhood is quiet, friendly and most convenient to interesting places. Fenton's Creamery is a must and the food at elegant Bay Wolf was exceptional. The owner and caretaker were helpful and welcoming.

REVIEW OF PIEDMONT AVE HOME

  • 5 of 5
Great stay in a wonderful house! Thank you for the hospitality. Only thing I would mention is that there is an occupied in-law suite attached to the house which made us a bit self conscious about the noise our kids made. Overall a wonderful stay. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for you kind remarks! The property caretaker lives in the in-law unit and is a private person who respects our guests’ privacy and does not share any of their space, including the backyard, except for the occasional times she needs to garden. Since she mostly works away from home guests may never see her at all, unless they choose to seek her out for help or advice, which she is happy to give. Additionally, as a former marine who has learned to tolerate living in noisy bunker conditions, she is exceptionally tolerant of any noises from upstairs.
