Built in 1933 with slavish attention to Spanish architecture, 8 Marr Ave. sits in the Oakland hills awaiting a buyer. Said buyer will appreciate the incredible woodwork, beamed ceilings, arched doorways, stone fireplaces, Wolf range, and wrap-around vistas, not to mention fully functioning pottery studio. Said buyer would be, of course, welcome to update decor and wall colors to the current decade- or any decade desired! In true Mediterranean style, each worn white brick of this 8 bed, 5.5 bath home centers around its courtyard, offering a network of charming, secret garden-ish pathways between house and 2/3 acres of landscape. But living on the Piedmont side of Monclair in a 4,150 square foot Spanish masterpiece doesn't come cheaply. Asking price: $2,900,000.
