This pleasant and spacious 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home is nestled in the heart of Highland Park, a centrally located and up-and-coming neighborhood of Oakland just 1.5 miles from Lake Merritt. Within this same radius are museums, theaters, parks, and shopping centers (including a Trader Joe’s), as well as highways 580 and 880 and various buses, meaning life at 1368 East 28th Street is as convenient by bike as it is by car or public transit.
The two-level house has an appealing location in the middle of the block and features an open living room/dining room, a sprawling kitchen, 1 bedroom, 1.5 bathrooms, and a laundry room on the lower level and 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms on the upper level. The home is accessible either through the gated front yard or from the backyard patio which includes an ivy-covered pergola and a separate 2-car garage.
Inside, the main level offers ample room to relax as a family or to entertain guests. New crown molding and baseboards frame both the living areas and bedrooms with clean-lined charm. Large windows and natural hardwood flooring give a light, airy feel to the open living and dining room, elegantly made distinct by the entryway to the kitchen. The kitchen has been beautifully updated with optional stainless steel appliances, tile floors, quartz countertops, and a mosaic tile backsplash. The elegant grays and blues complement the natural wood grain of the cabinetry. A long window above the sink fills the space with light and makes the kitchen another perfect spot to entertain. A bedroom, a full bathroom, and a half bathroom complete this level.
A classic baluster staircase lit by a sophisticated chandelier leads to the three upstairs bedrooms. The sunlit master bedroom features two spacious closets (one is a walk-in), large windows on two walls, and a renovated en-suite bathroom with mosaic tile. The second and third upstairs bedrooms are just down the hall and share an updated shower-over-tub bathroom. Each has its own closet, a stylish light fixture, and a large window that floods with afternoon light. Like the rest of the upstairs, the rooms also boast warm cherry-stained wood floors and new crown molding and baseboards.
At the base of the stairs, there is a separate laundry/storage room with its own window that shares the gray tile flooring of the kitchen. These tiles also stretch through to the back door entryway, which serves as a kind of mudroom leading into an expansive patio.
The backyard is accessible either through the back door of the house or the long driveway alongside it. It features a chic vine-covered pergola perfect for a summer brunch get-together or just an afternoon of peaceful reading in the fresh air. There is plenty of space to play and get creative. The backyard also contains the detached two-car garage, which has additional storage space beside the two parking spots.
1368 East 28th Street has a timeless, familial feel, redefined for modern tastes. With its flowing layout; light-filled living spaces; updated kitchen and bathrooms; elegant bedrooms; and versatile backyard patio, this house in Oakland’s Highland Park is ready to become a home.
