A SUNNY URBAN OASIS

This bright and cheerful 1915 bungalow is lovely inside and out. Located in the Dimond District, it has a welcoming street presence with a lushly landscaped front yard, a dramatic drape of bougainvillea and a mosaic-tile porch. Upon entering, there is a high, sloped ceiling that gives a spacious, open feel. The living room has two lounge spaces - enough to include an office area - and flows easily into the sunny dining room. All windows have big, tree-filled outlooks.

The kitchen is equipped with lots of storage, original hardwood floors and a greenhouse window over the sink. Off the kitchen is a light-filled bedroom, with large windows on two sides framing fabulous views of the back garden and the Oakland hills. This room feels as though it’s in the trees, with its pretty panorama.

Off the kitchen and dining room is a hall that leads to a full, vintage-style bathroom and a bedroom that overlooks a dramatic Angel Trumpet tree in the garden. 

The back door leads down to a spectacular garden, perfectly designed to maximize its considerable space and filled with fig, lemon, curly willow and maple trees. Several key areas are gracefully highlighted: a stone path and raised beds in the side yard; a covered deck and stairs; a small, grassy lawn area beneath a paved dining space, shaded by a flowering plum tree; a kitchen potager in the back nook for fruits, vegetables and herbs; and a handsome chicken coop to collect fresh eggs to enjoy at an al fresco breakfast. Apricot and plum trees along the side of the home provide fruit for all to enjoy.

The basement offers even more features - a large laundry room that can also house a workshop or artist’s studio, and a roomy garage with plenty of storage.

This is the perfect year-round sanctuary for indoor/outdoor California living at its best, and with its big yard and sunny exposure it’s a gardener’s dream.

Neighborhood


Gently rolling hills with some views of downtown and the Bay characterize the neighborhood named for Hugh Dimond, a wealthy Irish businessman who purchased a large parcel of land and settled here in 1867. By the 1890s, the neighborhood was a popular settling area for Germans and Beer Gardens popped up, seemingly on every corner, to remind the settlers of home. Cherry orchards dotted the landscape, and the Dimond District was a popular destination for San Franciscans looking to drink beer, pick cherries, and enjoy a host of upscale resorts as a diversion from city life.

The Dimond is an emerging neighborhood with a focus on community involvement. Volunteers pick up trash, and neighborhood groups have successfully cleaned up and saved some historic buildings in the district. Well kept gardens, pretty homes mostly dating from the early 1900s, and a friendly, neighborly feel make this neighborhood a pleasant place to call home.

Nearby amenities include Farmer Joe's (a regional supermarket), La Farine Bakery, Shaan Indian Restaurant, Nama Sushi, and Two Star Market. Convenient to everything, the 580 and 13 are close by giving easy access to downtown, San Francisco, Berkeley, and points south.
