This sophisticated Craftsman seamlessly blends original charm with modern upgrades. A welcoming front porch, easy-living single level layout and spacious magical garden set the stage for a peaceful home base where you can relax and enjoy all that Piedmont has to offer.
Gleaming hardwood floors, elegant moldings, tray ceilings, and original glass front built-ins highlight the public spaces, drawing you into this sophisticated bungalow that will 'wow' you from the front door to the back garden. The focal point of the light flooded living room is the original fireplace with Craftsman tilework, stately mantle, and period glass front display cabinets. Graceful divided light windows frame the seasonal blooms of color in the window box below. The living room opens to an elegant dining room for easy entertaining of family and friends. The upgraded eat-in kitchen sparkles with quartz countertops, custom tile backsplash and a suite of stainless steel appliances. Slide open the glass doors to bring the outside-in as you enjoy your morning coffee or casual meals at the breakfast table.
Two light-filled bedrooms share an updated bath with classic hexie floor tile, and a clawfoot tub with rainshower and subway tile surround. The primary bedroom is spacious and bright with windows overlooking the back garden. An attached bonus room wrapped in windows provides flexibility for a home office, nursery, walk-in closet, or the future addition of an ensuite bath.
Looking for more outdoor space? The deep backyard is an oasis with large deck for dining and entertaining, lawn for play, meandering paths around a majestic oak tree, magical garden, a hammock for napping and a second conversation patio perfectly suited for gathering around a fire-pit.
A laundry room adds convenience and extra storage. Attached garage with side entrance and huge adjacent space under the house is available for a workshop, hobbies….or future expansion?
237 Greenbank is situated perfectly…close to the fabulous shops and restaurants on Piedmont and Grand Avenue, beautiful Dracena Park with its off-leash dog run and near the center of town where our beloved Mulberry’s market serves up great coffee and even better sandwiches. Piedmont’s acclaimed schools provide excellence in learning for grades K-12. Welcome to town!
Piedmont, a two-square-mile city within the borders of Oakland, was incorporated in 1907 and was known then as “The City of Millionaires” because there were more millionaires per square mile residing there than in any other U.S. city. Today, their large, estate-like homes are still standing in the heart of Piedmont, reminding residents of its glitzy past. Homes in Piedmont range from those estate-like homes in central Piedmont with expansive grounds to more modest homes on the edges of town. Well-manicured landscapes prevail and the city’s stringent permitting guidelines ensure all of the homes maintain their original flavor. The commercial area of town is small, featuring several banks and one gas station. Mulberry’s Market, a specialty food store with ready-made meals, caters to gourmet taste buds and is the frequent morning coffee stop for parents and after-school hot spot for kids. Piedmont’s proximity to Oakland’s many big-city amenities ensures Piedmonters will not miss out on the latest restaurants or first-run movies. The sense of community is strong, as witnessed by the large turnout for the annual Fourth of July parade that happens each year down Highland Avenue. The Piedmont Recreation Center offers a central gathering place for residents. Available for rental, it is the frequent setting for community events and parties. The beautiful grounds provide a wonderful place to hang out and play, and the wooded trail connecting the Center to the high school is the best place to take your dog to play. A casual carpool zone on Oakland Avenue, along with proximity to Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District buses, offer workers convenient commute options. Pride in community involvement and village living are just a few of the reasons people love to live in Piedmont.
See it. Love it!
