1878 Tiffin Road
Set high above the street to maximize privacy and vistas, this charming Mediterranean bungalow is a modern family home with old-world style. Built in 1929, the two-bedroom, one-bath home lives much larger, thanks to thoughtful updates, and a lovely, livable backyard, blurring the lines between indoors and out.
At the entrance, a welcoming covered landing sets the tone for the warmth that infuses the home. The romantic, storybook appearance continues inside with vintage details: the original matchstick floors and fireplace in the living room, and the arched entryways in passages between rooms — each room is filled with relaxed character alongside hints of modern style. Contemporary additions, from double-paned Marvin windows to a refreshed kitchen, add ease and align the home’s traditional design with a more casual lifestyle. Two bedrooms are bright and cozy, offering a restful retreat along with easy access to the rest of the house. A convenient hallway bathroom with shower over tub tucks perfectly along the hallway.
The eat-in kitchen serves multi-tasking at its best: cooking, conversation, and casual dining all take place in this sunny space. Tile countertops and generous storage and workspaces create a fun and functional gathering place. The kitchen leads out to a sweet escape, a place to get away from it all (without leaving home) — the inviting multilevel backyard includes a deck, slate patio, and grassy play area. Relax in the shade of the oak tree, and enjoy the bounty of the apple and lemon trees —Oakland is well-loved for its sunny skies and mild year-round weather, which makes this outdoor living space all the more desirable.
Basements rarely command the design spotlight, but with some creative planning, this once-seldom-used lower level becomes a bonus space for playroom, office space, or home gym. The laundry area also lives on this floor, along with access to the single-car garage (which has been repurposed for smart storage).
The Oakmore neighborhood is a mix of quiet comfort and urban amenities, and despite being a part of the big city, Oakmore feels like a small town. Nearby Park Boulevard is home to a vibrant mix of restaurants and shops; Dimond Park has a pool, a playground, Sausal Creek with its walking trail. If you need to hit the road, there is convenient access to casual carpool, AC Transit, and highways. Pretty streets, interesting architecture, a strong community, and easy walkability make Oakmore a neighborhood residents are glad to call home.
