This Oakland Craftsman—a gorgeous shingled specimen in its own right—comes with original artwork by Mark Bulwinkle, a noted East Bay graphic artist and sculptor best known for his quonset hut on Hannah Street in West Oakland.

“[Bulwinkle] has known the seller for over 25 years and the seller has always loved his work,” says Negar Souza of Red Oak Realty. “The seller loved the details and opted to have pieces created for his home. Most notably, the fireplace tiles, which the artist made by hand.”

His work can also be found in a set of attic windows. (Adding to Bulwinkle’s elusive allure, the artist once declined an invitation to appear on the Oprah Winfrey Show, according to a 2017 interview with the Eville Eye.)

Featuring three bedrooms, three bathrooms, 1,887 square feet, 4232 Montgomery also comes with hardwood flooring, crown moldings, original built-ins, renovated kitchen and baths, landscaped garden, and new accessory dwelling unit (ADU) on the ground floor.

Asking is $1,495,000.
