In July of 2015, this Spanish-Mediterranean gem at 845 Calmar Avenue in Oakland's Crocker Highlands sold for around $1 million. Now it's on the market again for a cool $2.6 million, more than double its previous amount. Here's why:
The remarkable 5 bedroom, 6 bath estate was stripped down to its bones and completely redone. Original plaster walls were yanked and the entire building underwent a major engineered seismic upgrade.
And, of course, its aesthetics were upgraded. Big time. While some original details were restored, a good amount new innovation made its way into the structure, from flooring to kitchen to bath (replete with Restoration Hardware cabinetry and lighting), everything is new.
After a pretty impressive flip, the current owners want to make well over double what they initially paid for this Oakland abode. Is it worth is? We sure think so.
