32 Harbord Court | Oakland, (Upper Rockridge) 94618
On the bend of a cul-de-sac, in coveted Upper Rockridge, is this traditional two-story home. It has undergone a MAJOR renovation. At the top of the front yard stairs, stop to take in a view of the bay and appreciate its perched position, which adds privacy. This front yard begs you to stay for a while. Showcasing a covered porch, low-maintenance artificial lawn, and a towering redwood tree. It faces West so you can enjoy colorful skies during sunsets.
Inside, 1940’s construction combines with a 2021 remodel. The entryway with Redwood border detail is impressive. The classic character remains by way of wood flooring. Move through the large living room with a gas-burning fireplace for ambiance. The open bookshelf adds charm. A custom built-in cabinet brings the modern, and neatly defines a space for your television— it also sneaks in a coat closet! We love the tone on tone ceiling beams.
The living room and dining rooms show off the open concept portion of the floor plan. Long oak plank floors, refinished to their natural warm tone connect the two. An oversized chandelier defines your dining area. Ooh, la la! High-end window treatments throughout, are stylish and included in the sale.
While the entire cast of this property is special, the kitchen will melt your heart. It has a contemporary design, polka-dotted with classic charm to perfection. Schrock cabinets surround in a warm gray color. Peek inside them. Built-in are pantry and silverware organizers— making storage tidy and efficient. The cabinets pair perfectly with white quartz countertops and brass hardware. There is a Bosch refrigerator, gas range over the oven, a dishwasher, farm-style Kohler sink, and beautiful open shelving. The breakfast nook is anchored with a pendant light and bench seating (custom cushions included).
A door from the kitchen swings open to the backyard. Same as the front, this space is low maintenance, and fit for entertaining, kids, and pets. Hardscaping outlines an area to lounge under the pergola. Turn on your cafe lights to set the evening mood. Pets and kids will play freely; on the artificial lawn, you’ll never have to mow! The lot is fully fenced, has full sun exposure, and is completely landscaped with drought tolerance in mind. In time, the bougainvillea plants will grow up the back fence.
Back inside, the first floor is completed with two generous bedrooms and a full bathroom. Each has white walls, designer lighting, ample closet space, and dual-paned windows that let in the light. Between these rooms is a remodeled bathroom with black penny tile floor, a pedestal sink, and a shower-over-tub with a luxury glass door. The linen closet is convenient.
Remove your shoes to feel the super soft carpet between your toes as you head upstairs. At the top of the staircase is an oversized hallway fit for a play space, or your work-from-home destination. Two more bedrooms are on this top floor. Bedroom three matches the one just below it with hardwood flooring, white walls, and a new light fixture. Follow the carpet to the largest bedroom in the house— it’s oversized with a walk-in closet and 1940’s built-ins. Stunning are the large windows through which you can see the bay. Or, with a click of the remote, you can close the automatic blinds to enjoy darker sleep. Adjacent, is a stunning bathroom! Marble finishes— hexagon-shaped floor tile, and a textured accent wall behind a two-sink and two-medicine cabinet vanity set-up. The shower is roomie, complete with a black frame enclosure and sliding door combination.
32 Harbord Court is a great home in an excellent location. A treasured street because it’s one of the few neighborhood cul-de-sacs (and this one is flat!). Living here feels quiet and removed, yet convenient to the bustle in both Rockridge, Montclair Village, and Lake Temescal Park. Your most frequented destinations will be Village Market and Terrace Cafe, both within a stone’s throw. Excellent schools (both private and public options) are a short distance. Hwy 13 is easily accessible for commuting. All said this home has it all!
