OAK CENTER VICTORIAN WITH GARDEN OASIS
Come see the majestic grandeur of a beautiful Victorian from a bygone era combined with a thoroughly updated modern interior. This special home which is situated on quiet tree lined street, is currently configured as an owner-occupied duplex but could easily be converted back into a single-family home. Upon entering the downstairs, the first thing you notice are the soaring ceilings and beautiful hardwood floors. The open layout includes a living room, kitchen and den that opens up to a spacious 650 square foot deck overlooking an expansive sunny yard set on a large lot. Two light filled bedrooms, a large full bath and laundry room complete the downstairs level. The large upstairs unit features an open kitchen/living area which is bright and airy with soaring ceilings. Three bright bedrooms bathed in natural light, large bath/laundry and access to a private deck overlooking the beautiful yard make this a very special place. The large yard can be described as nothing short of an urban oasis. Featuring decks, a large artist studio/workspace, fire pit, redwood garden beds and extensive drought resistant drip irrigation landscaping; the yard could not be more inviting and private. Additional details include ample off-street parking, clean pest inspection, complete seismic retrofitting including bolting and shear walls, fresh exterior and interior paint as well as no interior plaster.
