Home for the Holidays! An appealing blend of vintage and modern, this 1912 craftsman bungalow in the very popular Glenview neighborhood of Oakland retains its original charm, while being extensively and tastefully redone with approximately $100,000 in recent updates—so you can move in, put up your feet and say “ahh!” before the end of the year! Offering most everything you'd want in a home, starting with the easy one-level floor plan and great indoor-outdoor living. A cute entry porch flanked by period craftsman columns takes you to the gracious entry, with original built-ins and an exquisite vintage light fixture. They don’t make them like this anymore: Original features include gorgeous refinished white oak hardwood floors throughout. The spacious and comfortable open living and dining room are separated by a gracious archway. The living room has a coved ceiling and a wood-burning fireplace with a new tile surround of contemporary Italian tile from Marca Corona. The dining room has coffered ceilings and original built-ins with leaded glass and crystal pulls; updated with a stunning Rejuvenation Altona chandelier and newer recessed LED lighting.

The sunny, entertainer's kitchen has a new GE Café oven and gas range, new quartz countertop, a big butcher block prep station, a pretty celestial blue matte subway tile backsplash and new recessed and under-cabinet lighting—all giving to a redwood deck for al fresco dining, with a view of your own majestic redwood tree! The two bedrooms have newer Marvin dual-pane wooden windows. The spacious primary bedroom leads to a cheerful plus room—with new wall-to-wall carpet, multi-lite windows, original wainscoting and a separate entrance—for use as an office, art room, workout room, or...? The updated bathroom has beautiful Spanish floor tile, a new vanity, plumbing fixtures and hardware, and lots of great storage.

4047 Everett was just painted inside and out, with color selections by a professional color consultant, complimented by new imported ceramic tile in the kitchen, living room and bathroom. 

This home is not only a lovely retreat—it has great curb appeal, with new landscaping, street trees and irrigation on a timer. The back yard offers two levels of deck plus your own little forest escape under the redwood canopy—cookout time, anyone? Plenty of off-street parking is available up the long drive. The spacious basement has a regulation-height ceiling, laundry, lots of storage and space to indulge your hobbies and crafts, PLUS a temperature-controlled wine cellar! The detached garage offers even more storage, or conversion potential. The spacious pitched attic, accessed via dropdown ladder, may also offer expansion potential. 

4047 Everett is close to great Glenview and Dimond amenities: On Park Blvd., find wonderfully delicious destination restaurants like Marzano, Bellanico and Paulista (all more popular now than ever with their cozy outdoor dining parklets); and in Dimond, Farmer Joe’s Market and La Farine, to name a few highlights. Spanning the two neighborhoods is Dimond Park with recreation and leafy nature trails in the middle of the city! This home is located around the corner from newly rebuilt Glenview Elementary School too!

A Short History

The seller is only the third owner of this house since it was built in 1912. An architect himself, after his purchase he carefully uncovered and restored much of the lovely original architectural details you see today. He recounts that this is the oldest house on the block, belonging to the builder, who then went on to construct many of the other houses on Everett Avenue.
