Charming 3BR House; Enormous Back Yard with Mature Fruit Trees

This 3+ bedroom, 1.5 bath home is located in a diverse and friendly neighborhood an easy bike ride from Oakland's beautiful Lake Merritt. The home is the entire top floor of the house, and shares an enormous back yard with two smaller apartments downstairs. The space gets wonderful natural light and has charming Craftsman finishes with a wonderful built in china cabinet in the spacious dining room. With a recently updated kitchen and nice flow between the living and dining rooms, this is a great home for cooking, family meals, or hosting dinner parties. There are two large and one medium sized bedroom, as well as a small office that looks out onto the back yard. The kitchen has newer appliances, including dishwasher, and the home shares a free washer and dryer with the other three units on the property.

The back yard features mature plum, persimmon, and loquat trees, as well as younger fig and peach trees and a few blueberry bushes. The yard has a picnic table and adirondack chairs for dining, lounging, or reading in the shade of the loquat tree. There are a number of above ground planters with space for more, so anyone interested in container gardening would have ample space.

The house is currently furnished in the common spaces and one of the bedrooms. Furnishings may be negotiable for tenants interested in longer stays.

About Me
We are an academic-lawyer couple relocating to Boston temporarily as one of us starts a PhD program in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies. The non-academic practices primarily in the field of health care law. We are looking forward to our adventure in Boston, but will miss the many wonderful things about living in Oakland and the Bay Area. We are hoping to find tenants who will take good care of our home while enjoying the intellectual, social, and natural worlds in the Bay Area. We are very happy to share ideas or advice for adjusting to the area, whether it's tips on navigating public transit, finding beautiful hikes, or experiencing delicious new cuisines.
