Beautiful and stately 1914 home perched on corner lot in Merritt neighborhood, just four blocks from Lake Merritt, awaits your vision and creativity. A cozy front porch set back from the street welcomes you into the home and immediately the lovely period detail is evident: crown molding, wainscoting, coved ceilings and original fir hardwood floors throughout. A few of the wonderful features inside: formal living room w/ stained glass window, large dining room w/ box beam ceilings and original built ins, a large kitchen ready w/ sun porch that opens to the sweet back yard, & 3 large bedrooms upstairs. This home is truly a find, in an up and coming neighborhood that is close to everything: Lake Merritt is just four blocks away, Lake Merritt BART station & Laney College are less than a mile away, Portal Restaurant, the supermarket & other conveniences are just three blocks away. Per conversation with Oakland Zoning, 2nd unit can be built on property, buyer to verify. Ask agent for info.
