609 18th Street
This home lives on a charming street of stately Victorian-era dwellings in the heart of Oakland's vibrant Uptown district. The gorgeous exterior, with expertly selected colors and intricate detailing, hints of the beauty awaiting just beyond the grand staircase and vintage wooden front door.
Inside, a stunning home unfolds…reclaimed wood floors underfoot, views of the sweet neighborhood through tall bay windows appointed with jewel-colored glass panes. Solid wood moldings and wainscoting have been painted in rich teals and smoky greys. The spacious formal living and dining rooms invite festive gatherings. The kitchen is also larger, with an island for guests to convene over hors d’oeuvres. A private deck off of the kitchen offers a calm respite surrounded by delicate flowering vines.
There are two bedrooms and a versatile bonus room. The rear bedroom has a beautifully painted reading nook. There are two bathrooms, one includes a shower over tub and the other, just a shower. The separate laundry and storage area leads to the rear door and lush gardens shared by the small community. Bougainvillea, bamboo, an avocado tree, morning glory, flowering begonia, roses and a lemon tree all grow in the community's private garden and patio area.
