Flow, yard space, and location make this Maxwell Park gem a home not to be missed! Modern conveniences mixed with Oakland craftsman details make for easy living. A well placed laundry closet and updated bathroom sit between the two bedrooms. The front bedroom is a split level making it feel situated above the rest of the home with a lovely view of the hills. The back bedroom is sun soaked with large windows and looks out at the yard and greenery. The kitchen with Wolf range and eat-in dining space open up completely to the newly updated deck and yard. This space works wonderfully for cooking, gardening, and living an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. There is plenty of storage under the home and a 1-car attached garage or additional storage or parking. Don’t miss the whimsical artist shack and the built-in hot tub on the rear platform. After you dry off, you can take the walking bridge right into the Laurel for Degrees Plato or some 4505 BBQ and leave your car at home!
