Built in 1949, this early midcentury home, located up a private drive in the Redwood Heights neighborhood of Oakland, has been renovated in recent years. But some of its period allure, like the brickwork and circular windows, remain intact.
Featuring four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 3,416 square feet, 4140 39th Avenue comes with an open floor plan, views of three Bay Area bridges, sandstone fireplaces in each of the living rooms, a private tiki garden, and a hot tub patio with views of Mt. Tamalpais. And the angled wooden carport, so rare to see these days, makes an excellent first impression.
The hillside home also comes with an added bonus studio with its own entrance, kitchen, and bathroom.
While some of the property’s newer elements seem to clash with the midcentury-ness of it all (e.g., the newer windows), overall it’s a treat for fans of the austere look.
Asking is $1,198,000; it’s listed through Dana Brook of Red Oak Realty.
