This shingled Craftsman charmer has been lovingly restored and updated. Greeted by an inviting front porch set back under decorative brackets and framed by multi-paned wood windows you are drawn in to the attractive living spaces. It’s all in the details; original wood built-ins with flanked bookcases, mahogany inlayed oak floors, built-in windows seats with storage and crystal glass door knobs.  The eat-in kitchen has custom cherry-wood cabinetry, copper countertops, a skylight with attic access and stainless-steel appliances. French doors open to a side deck that leads down to mature fruit trees, blooming vines and lush landscaping that offers privacy and verdant views. Down the driveway is an oversized detached garage perfect for a ‘Makers’ haven.  An amazing and thoughtful remodel that preserves the integrity of the architecture and yet inclusive of all the modern conveniences.

  • Fruit Trees: Navel Orange, lemons (2 varieties - Meyer and Eureka), Plum, Tangelo,  Avocado, Fig, Nectarine, Peach, Fuyu Persimmon, Blackberry.
  • Japanese Maples, Trumpet vine, Bougainvillea, native grasses, Fringe Flower, Calla Lilies, Leptospermum




Perhaps no other Oakland neighborhood exemplifies the city's changing face like Maxwell Park, a working-class enclave that has become increasingly popular with East Bay homebuyers thanks to its charming homes, relative affordability, and convenience to public transportation and jobs. The Maxwell Park area is an established neighborhood. It’s home to first-time homebuyers, long-time residents, and multi-generational families, as well as students, faculty, and staff from Mills College.   

MacArthur Boulevard, the main artery into the Laurel, serves as its business district, with mom-and-pop businesses and eateries. Gerardo’s Restaurant serves up authentic Mexican dishes, Phnom Penh House provides Cambodian and Asian fusion entrees, and Everett & Jones BBQ for some comfort food. Sequoia diner is always a popular location for locals and visitors to the neighborhood. Residents demonstrate neighborhood pride at the annual Laurel Street Fair, which celebrates local food and music.
