I recently had the pleasure of representing my buyer in purchasing this grand 1906 home in West Oakland that closed escrow for $635,000 and was the best of 6 offers on the property.

This 4 bedroom, 2 bath, 2,738 square foot home (plus finished attic) included a lush backyard, "endless pool", spa, sauna, two-level deck, and a wine cellar -- an entertainer's dream! The home had been lovingly updated inside while still maintaining much of its original charm. Congratulations to my very lucky buyer!
