The living room is planked with original Oak hardwoods and anchored by a handsome fireplace. French doors from the room open to the rear gardens, perfect for entertaining.

Whether entertaining, relaxing, or enjoying play, the rear gardens offer perfect privacy. The gently rolling lawn and patios are framed by lovely trees and add great privacy.

A little about the neighborhood, Crocker Highland was largely erected in the 1920’s and is known for its story book style architecture, meandering streets, sidewalks and neighborhood steps. A true jewel of Oakland Crocker Highlands is nestled between the border of Piedmont and the fabulous Lakeshore Avenue shops and restaurants. The proximity makes it a perfect hub to anywhere our area has to offer.
