Built in 1910, this Prairie-style craftsman home in Oakland features most of its original woodwork along with a few recent updates that bring this ample abode up to today’s standards.

Featuring four bedrooms, two and a half baths, and 3,345 square feet, 6025 Rockridge comes with a large stair landing, brick fireplace, hardwood flooring, two fireplaces, built-ins, dining room, and separate au pari unit with independent entrance.

Also, per a 2015 Curbed LA article on the architect: “According to architectural historian Tim Gregory, G. Lawrence Stimson had a habit of rejecting any timber that had knots in it. This nitpicky stance probably didn’t make him too popular around the lumber yard,” but definitely makes this pristine home a timeless work.

And such timelessness will cost you: Asking is $2,395,000 through Maxi Lilley of Red Oak Realty.
