Just on the Berkeley border and in the heart of NOBE, this Edwardian Craftsman condominium has been renovated in high end fashion in keeping with its lineage.
Grand in scale, with over 1,400 square feet, it is like a house in itself. A large great room/dining room/kitchen welcomes you. Bay windows, details, high ceilings give the character for the period. An open kitchen with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, ebony-stained floors fast forward you to today. French doors lead you to a grand living room/salon. And the three bedrooms, two baths are laid out to give you privacy when desired.
From the kitchen, a French door takes you to the lush garden with stone patio for barbecues, fun and parties. And a separate garden room gives you a studio or space for storage.
In keeping with its character, the location is prime as well: Within Peralta Elementary School boundaries, on the Berkeley border without Berkeley taxes … and just 2 blocks to BART. So it’s faster into downtown SF than most places in SF. And what could be grander than that.

Stretching from Telegraph Avenue to Martin Luther King Jr Way, North Oakland homes for sale exist in many sub-neighborhoods including Bushrod Park, Golden Gate, Longfellow, Piedmont Avenue, Rockridge, Santa Fe, Temescal, Fairview Park, Shafter, Gaskill, Paradise Park, and Mosswood.
North Oakland, an area rich in history, was originally given to Vincente Peralta by his father Don Luis Maria Peralta in 1842. Despite an 1853 Supreme Court ruling however, other European settlers forced the Peraltas off of their land and began several fruit and vegetable plantations across the East Bay. This later led to a number of industrial North Oakland canning and packing facilities. In fact, North Oakland was once the home to the world’s largest cannery, Josiah Lusk Canning Company, which stood at the corner of Claremonte Avenue and 51st Street.
Today, North Oakland real estate is in convenient proximity to the popular Jack London Square and Oakland’s Preservation Park. The Paramount Theater, Chabot Space & Science Center, and Children’s Fairyland also provide entertainment for people of any age or interest.
