Video Tour



This 1919 Craftsman bungalow set on a sweet street in Havenscourt has all the elements - beginning with a simply landscaped front yard with camellia, lavender, succulents and other drought-resistant plants, and a large front porch, creating an inviting and welcoming street presence. 

Inside, maple hardwood floors, coved ceilings, built-in cabinets, picture rails and other architectural details are just some of this home's highlights. Opening into the dining room/entrance area, the room is bright and airy, with a traditional Craftsman buffet and cabinetry, and a cozy brick fireplace. Off the dining room is the kitchen, and across from it is the living room, a large and peaceful room with lots of windows. 

Beyond the kitchen is a family room with a laundry space, and access to the expansive back yard. A nice guest room/office overlooks the garden, and has a graceful wall of windows that frame the scenery. Another bedroom is next door and a full bathroom nearby. There are lots of nooks with built-in storage that are a charming reminder of another era.  

Upstairs is another bedroom, with lots of windows, a nice deep closet and great light from two directions.  A WC is in the hallway.  This dreamy, light-filled room is the perfect private retreat.

The large, deep back yard has been recently transformed into a lush lawn, complete with a new timed irrigation system. A patio space is ideal for backyard entertaining, or just as a quiet place for taking in the big-sky view. A roomy garden shed and U-shaped raised beds for a potager hint at the gardening potential. There is a lot of space to play with for a gardener, and a lot of space to play in for the younger set.

The Havenscourt neighborhood is appreciated as an emerging area with walkability, diversity and a welcoming and active community. Easy access to Highways 880 and 580 are a bonus for commuters.

Havenscourt is a diverse neighborhood in East Oakland, where there is a rising sense of neighborhood community and pride of ownership spearheaded by organizations like the Healthy Havenscourt Collaborative. Historically, the neighborhood sprung up in the early 1900s as a middle class suburban neighborhood serviced by street cars. The architeture reflects the period, with mostly modest sized craftsman bungalows on tree lined streets. Recently, development dollars from small businesses, real estate investors, and community organizations have helped revitalize the neighborhood but keep its grassroots feel. Mills College and the Laurel commercial area are just a short drive away, as are many trailheads in the Oakland Hills for biking, running and hiking.

The neighborhood is ideally located for commuters: close to both the 580 and 880 freeways and serviced by nearby Coliseum and Fruitvale BART stations.
