The rest of this well-thought-out level, which is also serviced by a central elevator from the garage, boasts a big custom granite and stainless chef’s kitchen with a large pantry, lots of counter space, and an adjoining breakfast room, a roomy private primary suite with soaking tub and shower, large closet, and views to the West, two additional ample ensuite bedrooms with views and full and half baths, a separate laundry room with storage AND an additional 1/2 guest bath.

Fresh paint, gorgeous wood and stone floors, custom wooden doors and trim, and lots of charm and configuration options run throughout.

Downstairs is a must-see-to-be-believed 2,500 Sq Ft+ custom garage with oversized doors, excellent ceiling height, and a permitted full bath ready for all hobbies you can think of (including space for 5 or more vehicles including boats and ATVs), a home office, home gym, kids’ playroom, and/or possible home or ADU expansion (buyers to verify).

This garage oasis also features a private 2nd rear deck, large wine cellar or security vault for storing valuables, an air compressor AND high-pressure water line with fire suppression system and sprinklers.

Excellent Upper Rockridge location, close to world-class Rockridge, Montclair, Oakland and Berkeley shopping and dining, top-rated local schools, parks (including Lake Temescal), markets, and easy BART, SF Express Bus and 24/80/580/880 freeway access.

Location, space, amenities, and expansion opportunities make this a rare opportunity a must see for the discerning buyer!


Cross Alcatraz Avenue, which divides Oakland and Berkeley, and you’ll find yourself in Rockridge, one of Oakland's most desirable, charming, and convenient neighborhoods. Housing in Rockridge is a combination of charming bungalows, cottages, classic Arts and Crafts dwellings, and large brown-shingle houses. Its leafy streets are mainly residential. 

Rockridge offers an easy commute into San Francisco via the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station, as well as access to the University of California, Berkeley Campus. The 100-year-old, four-acre campus of the California College of Art and Crafts is nearby.

Food-and-drink purveyors in Rockridge provide the best from around the world and local farms. Rockridge Market Hall, which takes its cue from the French Marché, offers numerous individual food and flower shops open to the sidewalk. Dozens of restaurants, cafes, and boutiques line bustling College Avenue, Rockridge's main drag.

Upper Rockridge is a neighborhood of older, Mediterranean-style estates, midcentury modern homes, contemporary houses, and new, custom showplaces. Large lawns, terraced gardens, stunning views of the bay and San Francisco skyline, and roads that follow the rolling hills all define this affluent Oakland community.

A local grocery, the Village Market, serves the neighborhood, while more extensive shopping and dining options await in nearby Rockridge, where residents can commute to San Francisco via the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station.
