Restored over a seven-year period by Bob Hutchinson, who owns Hutchcraft Construction, and his brother, this 1895 Queen Anne Victorian duplex, located at 561 22nd Street in Oakland, still features its original exterior (spruced up to reveal its gingerbread-style glory) while the interior bas been renovated from the studs up. It’s asking $1,150,000.
Details: The electrical, plumbing, and foundation were all recently replaced. The top and bottom units come with three bedroom and two bathrooms a piece. Each measures 1,310 square feet. The entire property is being sold as a whole.
Design elements of note include a stained glass front window in the top unit; and exterior with scrollwork in the windows, pendants, fish scale shingles in the gable, and bargeboard; and updated kitchens and baths in both units.
The Victorian also comes with a bit of pedigree.
“It was built in 1889 for Adam Rudolph who was a ‘cooper’—i.e., a barrel maker,” says Gail Lombardi, Researcher, Oakland Cultural Heritage Survey. “In 1895, it was sold to Charles G. Hardy who had a book and stationery store on Broadway which flourished after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire and lasted into the 1920s.”
In a word, lovely.
