Though nestled in the Oakland Hills, this large Tudor estate brings to mind a 1930s New England vibe. You can practically hear the Hepburn family squabbling over the New Deal or Joesph Kennedy's escapades at the dinner table.
Located in Oakland's Oakmore neighborhood at 1872 Brentwood, this four bedroom, three bath 1936 home sits on a half acre lot and boasts approximately 2,410 square feet. It also comes with hardwood and tile flooring, as well as two fireplaces. And wood interiors. Lots and lots of rich wood interior. (One room is sealed in the stuff, from floor to wall to ceiling.)
Ideal for those who want to live someplace that doesn't feel like living in or near a big city. It's also prime for a major antiseptic flip — the neighborhood is quite affluent, after all — should someone be so inclined.
The home was sold back in 1995 for only $450,000. Price now begins at $1,249,000.
