Designed in 1952 by Oakland architect Herbert T. Johnson, 4247 Gregory has remained with the Friedman family for 65 years.

Per the listing: “Kathleen Friedman has vivid memories of life growing up on Gregory; the dirt and gravel road had no sidewalks and was lined with tractors. The home served the family for many years and her grandson Matthew was the fourth generation of the family to live in the home.”

Shortly before hitting the market, Kathleen renovated the property to better align with today’s contemporary tastes. For example, she removed the wall between the kitchen and dining room to create an open-concept space.

The kitchen and bathroom were also remodeled and the floors were refinished.

Featuring three beds, one bath, and 1,217 square feet, the house also comes with a detached garage and a small vegetable garden. Adorable. (Scroll down to the bottom to see vintage images.)

Asking is $699,000.
