Intact turn-of-the-Century finishes lend an irrepressible charm to this well-loved Hoover-Foster home. Gently curved cove ceilings accent generous bay windows with diamond upper panes. Wide window seats are made for accommodating impromptu gatherings or curling up on solitary afternoons. A central study with built-ins provides a convenient home office, and discreet pocket doors throughout ensure quiet and privacy when needed. Rear stairs lead to a sunny, unfinished bonus room with dormer windows. A breakfast bar divides the spacious dining room from a cozy, paneled kitchen with access to the large back yard. Original hardwood floors with inlaid borders have been carefully maintained for generations. A few key upgrades and your personal touch ensure this home is cherished for many years to come. Ideally located on a spacious corner lot, this West Oakland home enjoys a multitude of transportation options as well as quick access to the Bay Bridge and several area freeways.
