On an idyllic Crocker Highlands street of high-end properties is this gorgeous home that is a perfect balance of practical functionality and fantastic location. From the front colorful flora in the yard that complements the proud and impressive exterior façade.
Exquisite Craftsmanship – Inside, the wide traditional foyer quickly reveals the home’s striking quality of warm woodwork, substantial millwork, original fireplace, built-ins, and gleaming Oak floor throughout. Unique architectural design elements of ceiling accents, large windows, art deco glass doorknobs, and new modern style lighting only add to the charm.
Interior wood and glass French doors lead to the front living room with a wood-burning fireplace and a bay with extra-large windows—a dramatic, architectural space. Equaling this awe factor is the dining room, which yearns for large festive family meals. Such a wonderful room, it features a wall of built-in wood cabinetry with glass doors and modern brass pulls.
The chef’s kitchen is fabulous, with custom Cherry cabinetry, sleek soap stone counters, and stainless-steel appliances, including a 36-inch Wolf range. The peninsula bar seating lit by unique light pendants is the spot for casual dining and conversation and connected is a sitting room with French doors to a deck for indoor-outdoor flow. A half bath with classic black and white tilework completes this level, and just downstairs on the lower level is a large basement space for storage and laundry.
Ideal Layout – Leading upstairs is an extra-wide wood stairway with a picture window for light. The front primary suite features dual closets; a large spa-like bath with wainscoting, a walk-in shower, and a soaking tub with jets; and picturesque views of the colorful Oakland hills. In the back half of the home are two additional bedrooms further capturing immaculate hillside views. These rooms share a bright white traditional bath.
Exterior Tranquility – Out back, a large green Japanese maple creates a magnificent centerpiece, shading both upper and lower decks for outdoor lounging and dining, or to enjoy views of the surrounding hills. Further, built-in planter beds in the back can supply garden-to-table veggies for meals.
The long driveway and the detached garage provide for ample off-street parking. The garage could certainly be used as a studio, home office, workout space and more...
678 Arimo is in an ideal location. While situated in a delightful neighborhood, just minutes down the road are all the boutiques, restaurants, cafes, and amenities one could need on Lakeshore and Grand. Plus, bike rides to Lake Merritt and the weekly Farmer’s Market are a joy. Commutes are a breeze with Int. 580 right nearby. A perfect place to call home!
