Built in 1896, this Oakland Victorian, located in the Jingletown neighborhood, has seen it all—most recently, this whimsical take by Benjamin Winter. The artist (who designed this spiral football featured in the MoMA’s object collection) designed the interiors of the home, his home, where he and Colleen Chadsey lived for 30-plus years.

Featuring two beds, two baths, and 1,056 square feet, 2941 E Seventh Street comes with cut outs, hardwood floors, a leveled bed in the master bedroom, artist’s studio (of course), angular attic space accessible via ladder, skylights, clawfoot tub, and, well, Winter’s signature touch.

More importantly, the home demonstrations that—unlike the hordes of lifeless Victorian renovations just across the bridge—one can create clean, modern interiors full of life, levity, and fun.

Asking is $575,000.

Realtor Scott Leverette is so excited and can’t hide it.
