House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Academic (historian), long-time resident of the Bay Area who is only here part-time now. Third-generation Californian. Graduate of Mills College and UC Berkeley.
Owner purchased this House in 2009
Why Owner chose Oakland Ave - Harrison St
This is an exquisite example of Arts and Crafts architecture, which is my very favorite style. Growing up in California, I had always wanted to live in such a house.
What makes this House unique
The house is ideally located to take advantage of restaurants, theatre, opera and shopping in San Francisco, as well as similar offerings in Oakland and Berkeley. (Berkeley is only about a 10-minute drive away; San Francisco about twice that long, in non-commute times.) Having Lake Merritt so close makes it easy to picnic, walk around the lake, etc.

Great find, would stay again.
We loved it here and hope to be able to stay here again
The house has been wonderful for our vacation.
It is so charming and well set up with every convenience we required that we felt perfectly comfortable.
it is in a great location within easy walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants and also to the lake and gardens.
A Safe Respite From The Paradise Fire Smoke
This is a great home to spend a family vacation in the East Bay. Unfortunately, we arrived in the midst of the Paradise Fire and the resulting blanket of smoke over the entire Bay Area. We had family over to share meals and play indoor games. When the rain came on Wednesday before Thanksgiving we were able to go out and enjoy the neighborhoods we love. I would recommend this home.
Perfectly Located & Charming Home
We loved our stay! The home is well decorated, comfortable, and perfect for having a couple of friends over for dinner! We stayed here with our two kids and had ample space, access to a washer and dryer and driveway parking (essential as street parking is scarce). We would highly recommend this home and hope to stay again if we are ever in the area!
Very nice place; comfortable and great location
I rented this house for visiting family and it was very nice. The location is quiet. We really enjoyed the large kitchen and back patio.
A great house
This house was great for my friends and myself needs, with two bedrooms and one bathroom and one shower room no one had to wait to have a shower. The house also had lots of space with a front room, dining room, kitchen and a TV lounge which leads to the garden. There a supermarket less than 10 minutes walk and the Bart was only 20 minutes walk away. There was lots of interesting books to read in the house and the AC was nice to have as Oakland is hotter then San Francisco. My friends and I will stay here again if we are in the bay area again.
Lake Merritt & Children's Park; Jack London Square; easy drive to Berkeley and its Marina; great restaurants on Piedmont, downtown Oakland, College Ave. and 4th St i Berkeley
