The Grand Dame of Paramount! Located in the center of one of the most coveted streets in Crocker Highlands, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own an iconic architecturally designed home. Built in 1930, this stunning English Tudor was designed for lavish entertaining and large family gatherings. It features a breath taking ballroom size living room with a soaring 20 ft wood beam ceiling, a gorgeous wood panel fireplace, and rich wood panel doors. Floor to ceiling windows stream natural light throughout. Also highlighted are a large formal dining room, a breakfast room with built in hutch, sunny kitchen, charming office, and a hobby room below. Upstairs offers an exceptionally large master bedroom en suite with an adjoining sitting room, and two other good size bedrooms and hall bath. A spacious deck and level backyard complete this masterpiece. Located half a block from the highly rated elementary school, and near Lakeshore shops and freeway. Truly a forever home!
Crocker Highlands has been my place in the world for many, many years and I continue to fall in love with the tree lined streets, sidewalks, and architectually designed homes, many of which were built by famous architects including Julia Morgan, Maybeck & White, Charles McCall, A.W. Smith, Hamilton Murdock, William Schirmer, and others.
Ideally located just above Lakeshore Avenue, you can stroll down to shops, eateries, the Farmer's Market, Trader Joe's or scoot onto the 580 freeway in minutes.
There are several small parks here, where you may find a lending library and bench to sit and read. There are also several shortcut "stairs" that connect streets and sidewalks, and a dog park which has a beautiful wooded trail, a real treat for dog lovers.
The elementary school is highly rated and on school days you can watch moms and dads walking their kids to school, with dog or strollers in tow, chatting with neighbors they meet along the way.
And not too many people know about the Davie Tennis Stadium that's quietly tucked in the canyons at the Piedmont border. On a fall day, the trees burst with colors as you enjoy a match or two.
All said, the best part of living in Crocker Highlands are the neighbors and friends you meet and stay connected with throughout the years. From power walkers, stroller buddies, book club, bridge players, play groups -- life is good in this very special place in Oakland.
