The homes in Rockridge, one of the East Bay’s most sought after neighborhoods, were built to house middle-class residents of the 1910s-1920s. Arts and Crafts, Craftsmans, bungalows hodgepodges all made up the bucolic hood. Leap one hundred years into the future and these simple single-family abodes are now aimed at Bay Area multimillionaires who yearn to call the tony enclave home.
And this stunning renovation, located 5589 Lawton, should get snapped up in no time. Featuring three beds, three and a half baths, and 2,944 square feet, this circa-1914 Craftsman benefitted from a major overhaul in 2006.
The shingled exterior remains more or less the same (mercifully), but the interiors boast a fresh look—exposed beams; wood paneling; hardwood floors; and updated staircase, kitchen, baths, and more. And the small cottage in the rear (with bath and kitchen) acts as a guesthouse. Delightful. All of it.
Asking is $2,550,000.
