I really love this house at 1169 Sunnyhills Road in Crocker Highlands. This 1940's home is polished with tasteful updates, crisp white woodwork and is the perfect marriage between formal and casual. I love this family room with French doors to the backyard and I am really digging that the backyard is ample, but not too much yard to maintain. This property last sold in November 2011 for $1,100,000, it is now currently listed with Dave Higgins of Grubb Co at $1,295,000.
People are falling in love, (again) with the Crocker Highlands district of Oakland. The 1920's and 1930's homes in this handsome polished neighborhood that flank the Lakeshore retail district and Lake Merritt are selling quickly. Since January, 11 properties a went under contract or have sold, averaging 14 days on the market.

Earlier this week, I fell in love with Anthony Riggins' (now pending) listing on Sunnyhills Road. This 1929 Spanish Colonial Revival pictured below was my favorite from Monday's Broker's tour and only lasted 7 days on the market.
Every buyer has a wish list as they venture out and start their house hunt. My Crocker Highland buyers wanted a home in original condition. They wanted to embrace the vintage details of a 1920's or 1930's property and enhance it to blend with their modern edge.
All of the original gum wood was preserved. The hardwood floors were refinished with a water based matte finish to open up the space. The wall paper was removed and the plastered walls were hand restored.
