A Home with Heart
They say home is where the heart is, Home is more than the four walls we live within; home extends to our neighborhood and our city, and there are few cities that have heart like Oakland. Making 4115 Culver your home ensures your heart dwells in both a house and city with heart and soul. Residents of the richly diverse neighborhood of Allendale appreciate that their enclave still remains a somewhat hidden jewel, tucked away near the neighboring Laurel district. Charming storybook homes dot the tree-lined street along one of Allendale’s most desirable blocks, where they whisper their stories dating back to the 1920s, 4115 Culver included.
Original stained glass artfully lines the living room’s picture windows, a loving detail echoed in the front door detail. Hardwood floors glisten throughout the sun drenched home while gracefully arched doorways and a period detailed fireplace highlight the home’s original Mediterranean character. Stepping through the spacious dining room, graced with original decorative mouldings on the walls, into the rest of the well laid out home the custom paint will surely catch your eye with its traditional charm.
This split level home opens her heart to you with two bedrooms, one on its own level looking out to the enchanting backyard, and one full bath. The bathroom has been elevated with modern touches like the clean, white tile shower over the bathtub contrasting the dark hexagonal tiled floors. Similarly, the kitchen is appointed with contemporary conveniences like the smooth quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances. Dining in the kitchen’s breakfast nook is a dream with windows that overlook the magical backyard complete with a mature apple tree offering its fruit for pies, salads, and Halloween games.
Stepping a few short steps down to the lowest level, the basement currently hosts the laundry room, but carries dreams of all its potential. With access to the backyard, it could readily be a home office or a play space. And with a detached shed at the end of the home’s driveway, this interior bonus space doesn’t have to be delegated simply for storage.
Expanding into the heart of the neighborhood, abundant amenities are just up the road. Meeting up with friends, clients, or colleagues is comfortably convenient at local favorites World Grounds, Sequoia Diner, or Communite. Shopping for hard to find ingredients is easy with two Farmer Joe’s stores nearby -- the closest barely more than half a mile from your doorstep. And staying healthy gets a helping hand from long time local staple, The Food Mill. Skip the trip to Home Depot and get real help at the Laurel Ace Hardware, half a mile away. While there, alleviate any stress with some yoga at neighborhood Anasa or a pint at Degrees Plato Taproom & Bottleshop. However you choose to relax, picking up some BBQ at 4505 or Everett & Jones, pizza from Fist of Flour Doughjo, old school Oakland burgers from Giant Burger, or south east Asian cuisine from Phnom Penh is a sure way to end a day feeling full. Should your daily commute take you away from home, Fruitvale BART is two miles away and can take you wherever you need to go. If driving is your drag, highways 580 and 13 are moments away and ready to whisk you off to any destination. Allendale is a thriving and growing community, benefitting from its big sister nextdoor, The Laurel; the common vibrancy of the two neighborhoods shines most visibly at the annual Laurel Street Fair.
Pour your heart into this home and she’ll hold you warm for years to come.
