Won’t You Be My Neighbor? Oakland, California

By Sablemable aka Jan

I know, it’s not Sunday, but Ruth has a very special post for Sunday and so I’m doing WYBMN today.

I found this website of a real estate broker, Andrew Devries, who specializes in probate/estate real estate sales in the San Francisco area.  All images are courtesy of his site at www.devries4sfhomes.com   You can also contact him at 415-664-9175 ext. 277.  It is one of the homes on the site that I’m presenting today.

At 10950 Cameron Avenue in Oakland, California, this wood-sided home was built in 1952.  With three (3) bedrooms, two (2) bathrooms and 1,708 square feet, the listing price is $299,000.00.

THE LIVING ROOM/TERRACE

THIS IS AN UNKNOW ROOM-IT’S OFF OF THE LIVING ROOM AND THERE IS A DOOR LEADING TO THE TERRACE.  I THOUGHT MAYBE IT WAS PART OF THE KITCHEN, BUT THE FLOORING DOESN’T MATCH.  YOUR THOUGHTS, READERS?

THE KITCHEN-NOTICE THE TIME CAPSULE PULL DOWN LIGHT IN THE EAT-IN AREA AND THE HANGING LAMP IN THE WORK AREA?

ONE OF THE BEDROOMS WITH A LOVELY VIEW-NOTICE THE ORIGINAL CEILING LIGHT.

If I bought this home, I would have to change the exterior paint colors, strip/refinish the kitchen cabinets and re-tile the bathroom walls. 

This is a wonderful MCM home and that large living room was meant for Frank Sinatra, martinis and cocktail attire!

Have a blessed Easter holiday, Readers!

    In OAKLAND? For only $299,000? I did a “Google Walk” of the neighborhood and this house is up in the hills! I’m amazed that it hasn’t been snapped up!

    Good find!!

    Wow, this might be my favourite house of the ones you’ve featured on WYBMN, Sable! I love everything about it.

    Happy Easter! Isn’t this house amazing? And Dr. JulieAnn, good going on researching the ‘Hood!

    Estate/Probate sales are probably loaded with MCM time-capsule homes. I’ll bet this was a one-owner home.
