Glenview Bungalow That Caught My Fancy

4039 Linwood Avenue in the Glenview district of Oakland caught my fancy last week on Broker's Tour.  (This home is currently listed with Leslie Easterday of Pacific Union. Listed at $695,000)  When you are purchasing a home you either want one of two things: You want the purchase price to include finish work that suits your style and sensibility or you want the purchase price to reflect that it is in need a cosmetic face lift to suit your needs.

This house on Linwood was pristine, great light, warm hardwoods and original details such as the original hearth tile and built-in shelving.  The lot is a small, but the raised garden beds really appealed the gardener in me.  Additionally the Glenview district is a very walkable neighborhood with great restaurants.  A Cote, (The very popular Rockridge eatery) is in the process of opening a sister restaurant in the Glenview on Park Blvd.  This restaurant will feature Pan American food highlighting food from Argentina, Cuba and Mexico.
