Property Description

Welcome to 3428 Adeline Street, a modern Victorian boasting 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Conveniently located at the border of Oakland and Emeryville, the property is set back from the main street by a wooden gate and sliding fence providing a private entrance to the home.

As you enter, you immediately notice the charm of the tall ceilings that accentuate the home’s bright and cheerful character. Step inside into the formal living room that is filled with abundant natural light streaming in through the front windows. The adjoining dining area is thoughtfully located and offers a cozy decorative hearth adorned with period detail.

To one side, is the first of three freshly painted bedrooms, and across the hallway is another well placed room that can be transformed into an additional bedroom or a quiet work space. The bathroom is also centrally located off the hallway.
At the end of the hallway is an updated kitchen finished with ample counter and cabinet space. Dual pane windows installed above the sink overlook the backyard. The openness of the kitchen provides plenty of opportunity to create an eat-in space for friends and family to gather whilst meals are being prepared.

Tucked off to the side is the third bedroom. Sunny and serene this generously sized room peers out to the backyard affording glimpses of color.
The back deck steps lead to the yard and access to the lower level space – an expansive basement extending the length of the home. At 813 sq.ft. This area offers possibilities that extend far beyond just storage. The home’s next owners will have an opportunity to create whatever they may desire – a game room, artist studio, or home gym. The garage may be accessed through this space as well from the front of the home.

The backyard contains a delightful urban farm primed for gardening and entertaining – featuring a trellised patio area, chicken coop, vegetable planter boxes, and fruiting trees. Outdoor lights extend across the yard, weaving through the trellis and provide the perfect amount of sparkle to a warm summer’s evening.

3428 Adeline Street is located in bustling West Oakland. Close to main streets, freeways and bridges this is a dream commute location to San Francisco, Berkeley and Emeryville. The home is also within close proximity to San Pablo Avenue and Emeryville’s Public Market, both filled with wonderful eateries. Shopping and groceries may be taken care of at Bay Street Mall, Target, Home Depot, and other nearby retailers. With a walk score of 86, this property is truly in the heart of it all – one of the many perks of calling 3428 Adeline Street home.
