Welcome to this gorgeous shingled home in a magical park-like setting in Oakland’s Dimond Village. 3824 Forest Hill Ave is a modern “cottage” with a clever floor plan over 2 levels and excellent storage options. The 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom house was originally built in 1920 and has been lovingly cared for. The home is situated on a large lot, over 5,500 sq. ft., that abuts Sausal Creek. There is even a gate and access area to the historic waterway.
As you approach the home, there is a beautiful redwood deck, perfect for entertaining, and a sprawling landscape that will appeal to the urban gardener. A glass-enclosed entryway is the perfect welcome as you enter into the foyer. Immediately to your left is an open kitchen with a gas range and tiled countertops. To the right is a cozy family room with an oversized window looking out onto neighboring treetops and the Oakland skyline. This single-family home features a split-level floor plan with the master bedroom on the first floor and the second bedroom/office on the lower floor. The master bedroom offers built-in cabinetry and a cedar-lined closet. The lower level bedroom has direct access to the back patio with a sitting area and detached greenhouse.
Below the house is a separate laundry room with a full-sized washer and dryer and storage. In addition to the laundry room, there is a large utility/storage room with access to the crawlspace. There is no lack of storage in this home!
