Description

Welcome to 5601 Picardy Drive, a classic gem nestled on a historic street. The subdivision of 75 houses was built in the 1920s, a Hollywood developer's fantasy of a medieval French village of "modest mansions," with many turrets and even a "castle." His inspired decision to wire the houses to allow lights to be strung between them turned Picardy Drive into a Christmas Tree Lane treasured by generations of East Bay residents. This meticulously designed home boasts hardwood floors, skylights, a spacious living room with gas fireplace and a great open floor plan, flooded with natural light. The stylishly renovated kitchen features a Wedgewood stove, butcher block countertops and Douglas fir floor. The backyard oasis is beautifully landscaped, ideal for entertaining or simply enjoying the California sun. Detached garage provides extra storage, a possible workshop or artist studio. Two of the best parts of living here: friendly neighbors and active neighborhood group which hosts parties, has a Google group and coordinates emergency preparedness and holiday lighting. Located in the heart of Oakland, with easy commutes to San Francisco via nearby freeways and public transit, or explore the vibrant local scene with its eclectic mix of dining, shopping, and entertainment options.
