This charming Craftsman is in the heart of it all! Located on the Oakland, Emeryville, Berkeley border, you’ll find everything you’re looking for and then some. Once you enter inside, you’ll notice the updated rooms with original Craftsman details throughout. There are two well-proportioned bedrooms and a flex room, living room, dining room, plus a separate pantry with a sink and storage (*see rendering for a possible second bathroom?). Laundry room in the basement allows for additional storage. The long driveway provides tandem off-street parking. The backyard is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle, surrounded by assorted fruit trees and greenery. Just imagine entertaining loved ones, gardening or relaxing with a good book.
