Love in Crocker Highlands!

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.

Love this family room



Romance is in the air

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. Take a look at this treasured community Red Oak style below and scroll down to view a Crocker Highland gem:

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.

What this image can't express is how pristine this home is. As I walked through, I caressed one of the windowsills that was sanded to perfection. Rarely do you find properties with original details that are preserved and restored, as if it were a newly constructed property.
The baseboard is comprised of original spanish tiles

I was not sure what the modest exterior held within as I walked up the stairs.
Unbelievable vibrant original bathroom with exquisite wall tile
