Built in 1909 and designed in the Swiss chalet style, this Crafstman abode, boasting a crimson facade, stands out on a street full of otherwise drab apartment complexes.
Featuring four beds, three and a half baths, and roughly 3,073 square feet, 686 Mariposa comes with classic Craftsman details like boxed-beamed ceilings, original tile work, and more.
Other highlights include signature overhang above the main entrance, hardwood floors, brick fireplace, and updated kitchen and baths.
There’s also a detached art studio/office space in the same style of this gorgeous Oakland home. And it’s ripe for a much-needed makeover—e.g., the fluorescent lighting hampering the bottom floor living space needs to scram.
Asking is $1,395,000.
