3600 Nevil Street
This is that rare home that has it all - although centrally located it's on a quiet corner where the street ends so that traffic tends to be “stopping by” rather than “passing through” and mature gardens offer space to lounge, cultivate and entertain.
Inside, abundant light adds a spacious feeling to the open floor plan. There are hard wood floors, light streaming through large windows and a generous, fully appointed kitchen that features a breakfast bar. There are two full bathrooms, one attached to a bedroom. Another bedroom is several steps up from the main level. This bedroom, along with a third, offer views of the lovely gardens.
The stunning yard is a world away from the city bustle. The many varieties of plants and trees include passion fruit, rose, persimmon, loquat, avocado, pineapple guava, kiwi and kumquat. Lemon balm and mint are among the healing plants that you'll find in the garden. Summer veggies and herbs are growing in two large planter boxes. Follow the path to a covered patio area, draped with grapevines.
Other great features of this home are dual pane windows, recessed lighting, easily accessible storage and laundry area. The far rear patio also has a street entrance so it could be used as gated parking.
Laurel shops and restaurants, including Farmer Joes, World Grounds coffee shop, Sequoia Diner, Planet Fitness, and the transbay bus stop are all nearby.
Allendale is a centrally located Oakland enclave surrounded by the Fruitvale, Maxwell Park, and Laurel neighborhoods. Allendale is very close to parks, transit highways and popular Oakland shopping districts. It has an abundance of 1920s-era bungalows.
MacArthur Boulevard, the main artery in nearby Laurel, serves as its business district, with mom-and-pop businesses and eateries. Residents demonstrate neighborhood pride at the annual Laurel Street Fair, which celebrates local food and music.
