This 1905 Lake Merritt Victorian beauty has been totally remodeled to create a comfortable modern home while still maintaining its original charm. Many features have been preserved from hardwood floors and built-ins, to doorknobs and wainscoting. The renovation includes addition of 2 new bathrooms, remodeled existing bathrooms, gourmet kitchen w/ brand-new appliances, new decks, and much more!
While this home could be a wonderful and spacious primary residence, it could also serve as a great income producing opportunity, whether it be a corporate rental, vacation home, or rented to roommates. The living room easily converts to a 5th bedroom, and living room activities could shift to the backyard “carriage house.” Walk out the back deck to landscaped backyard and large detached carriage house. Beautifully re-finished concrete floors and finished walls upgrade it from a musty storage space to a flexible recreation space. Another unique feature of home is multiple master bedrooms, with the ground-floor master having its own separate entrance.
As you enter through the front door with keyless lock, you’ll find a living room, dining room, gourmet kitchen, half bath, bedroom with separate entrance to outside, full bathroom, and deck. Upstairs find a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and private deck, and 2 other bedrooms and full bath.
