672 57th Street is located on the Temescal/North Oakland border. Close to Berkeley, the Ashby Bart, Children's Hospital and the cool shops of the Temescal District of Oakland.
I love how the landscape architect owner renovated his turn of the century bungalow. This home has two cool claw foot bathtubs, rustic douglas fir floors and bold columns from the era in which it was built; yet it has modern additions such as skylights and tube lighting, newer energy saving windows and silky smooth walls with no cracks ! (I have a huge appreciation for the details in a home.) The built-in cabinetry in the dining room have been clean, sanded and painted so the drawers work like they did in 1907 when this beauty was built.
This home is listed by Red Oak Realty and I will be holding it open for my colleagues Leif and Charity this Sunday, February 22nd from 2-4.
