Excellent opportunity to achieve your dream home in the desirable Ivy Hill community of Oakland; the vacant side lot may also be purchased separately. This one of a kind 4-bedroom, 2-bath livable fixer is nestled in the trees with surrounding terraced garden areas. The interior has been freshly painted and upon entry you will find a spacious foyer and pleasing floor plan. The main level features a large sun filled living room with fireplace, hardwood floors, formal dining room, kitchen, and large upper-level bedrooms. The lower level has interior and exterior access and at one time served as a secondary living space for this longtime family-owned property; with city approval and permits this space may possibly be developed into a legal second unit. A wonderful side/rear yard awaits your ideas for landscaped spaces and outdoor entertainment. This home offers privacy and seclusion in the middle of an urban setting, just minutes to schools, Lake Merritt, Downtown Oakland, Lakeshore and Grand Avenue shopping. The rear driveway is accessible by a shared easement. Make this diamond in the rough shine again!
