Achieving your New Home Bucket List just got easier: ideal Oakmore location (walk to restaurants, shops, schools, parks + easy freeway access); elegant period details (coved ceilings, arched doorways, wood floors, fireplace); family-friendly floorpan (three bedrooms on main level, separate in-law unit below); kitchen (oversized eat-in area and direct access to spacious deck); outdoor space (room for cooking, dining & entertaining). Check, check, check, check, and check!
The wide entry hall with arched doors to the formal rooms on either side gives a strong nod to the home’s elegant 1930s roots, and the eye-catching blend of large paned windows, gently curved coved ceilings and gleaming wood floors in the living room evoke the exquisite craftsmanship of traditional design … and offer a quiet sense of grandeur. Across the hall, the dining room is elegant in its simplicity — drenched in light thanks to the large windows, the space welcomes everyday family meals as easily as a celebration dinner. The kitchen is the heart of the home, and here the open connection to the big breakfast area makes everyone want to linger. Spacious and airy, it balances form with function — a fresh white palette, from cabinetry to subway tile and Calacatta quartz countertops, feels timeless — with plenty of room for chefs and sous-chefs, cooking is a dream. The easy flow extends beyond the house itself, through a glass door to the expansive new deck — an enviable outdoor space for al fresco dining, morning coffee or after-work wine — kick back, relax and enjoy the privacy of surrounding mature native trees and abundant greenery.
At the rear of the house, a vintage-inspired powder room features rich dark walls that pop against the white tile floor and classic fixtures. The master bedroom is a destination for relaxation; the generous space makes room for a reading nook or sitting area, and boasts two closets. The dappled light through the trees creates a sense of privacy and peace — a perfect place to unwind. Two additional bedrooms play up the sunny vibe with a natural palette, ready for individual style. Rifts of black enliven the old-world charm of the white hex tile in the hallway bath, where the walk-in shower and separate tub are a thoughtful family-friendly design feature.
Descend the staircase to a roomy lower level, which maintains a welcoming functionality while still offering a few surprises. A corner fireplace is the focal point of the large family room, with plenty of natural light and space for books and games, or a big screen for binge-watching the latest release. A private bedroom and a full bath offer endless possibilities, from guest suite to home office.The large laundry room and interior access from the garage are welcome conveniences. But, wait, there’s more: an in-law/au pair unit with a full kitchen and bedroom provides even more living space. Outside, a lower deck and big backyard carve out multiple functions, with plenty of space for entertaining, play and gardening — plus cozy nooks to enjoy alone time — a staycation-worthy outdoor space.
With a beautiful mix of architectural styles gracing tree-lined streets, the sought-after Oakmore neighborhood feels like a hometown. A vibrant and active community, with restaurants and shops, parks and hiking trails, and commute options just moments away — this mix of quiet comfort and urban amenities strikes just the right note: Bucket List acheived.
