Property Description

A vintage gem in an amazing location! This property is truly rare & one of the most special around. Bring your imagination & your architect to rehabilitate this 1892 Romanesque red sandstone treasure back to its original grandeur & create this incredible mansion-like space & make it your own. The property sits 3 full stories (5,676 sq. ft.) above grade, on an OVERSIZED lot. What a tremendous find! Currently configured with 8 bedrooms & 5 full baths, the residence boasts many charming original features that set it apart, including all the original functional pocket doors, a Peeler mirror and 6 original fireplaces. The 1892 sq. ft. full basement can be finished for use as part of the home, as an in-law suite or separate rental quarters.
Adding to the allure is a side drive with a three-car garage & plenty of adjacent space to accommodate a swimming pool, basketball or tennis court. The outstanding address in Oakland is unbeatable, just two blocks from Oakwood Beach & 10 minutes downtown.
