Lazy Days & Croquet & Lemonade
Life here on this tree-lined Rockridge cul-de-sac has a friendly small town vibe. Kids ride bikes and scooters down the sidewalk, or draw with chalk at the end of the street. Neighbors mingle in front yards, and a golden retriever saunters up to greet you. Halfway down the block you arrive at 5869 Chabot Court — a sweet 1920s stucco home with Craftsman-style roof gables, a green front lawn, and a welcoming front porch. Sitting on the swinging bench, you can easily greet your neighbors which is what Chabot Court is really all about.
Entering the home you are greeted with a large and bright open-plan space which is the living and dining areas. A gorgeous wood burning fireplace shows off the modern geometric tile on its façade. A strategic skylight over the dining table brightens this space in the most lovely way.
On your left is the recently renovated kitchen featuring a luxurious palette of white-on-white with thick marble countertops and professional grade appliances like the Thermador gas range and dishwasher, and the Fisher-Paykel refrigerator, panelled in for that designer look.
The back of the house is split level, which makes for short runs of stairs and an easy home to navigate. Just 6 stairs up you are on the upper level where you have 2 flanking bedrooms, each with their own walk-in closet and built-in bench seats that overlook the garden. They share a hallway bathroom which is a gorgeous blend of white and marble tile and gleaming chrome bath fixtures.
From the kitchen, you can travel 6 stairs down to the lower level, on your way passing the sweet walk-in pantry. The lower level consists of an open-plan home office, wet bar, and family room with the perfect wall for the TV. To the left is the glamorous master suite – with it’s moody paint scheme and dramatic wall of metallic Osborn and Little wallpaper. French doors invite the garden into your own private sanctuary. The en-suite master bath shows off its natural stone tile in a stylish herringbone pattern. The gorgeous custom double sink vanity gives everyone enough space to start the day just right.
The rarest part of the entire property is the unusually large back yard. From the wet bar with built-in wine fridge you are just feet to the French doors opening to an expansive outdoor patio with a sprawling green lawn beyond! Ornamental planting beds surround the perimeter, with mature trees creating a beautiful dappled sunlight effect over the patio. There is enough space here for croquet, badminton, or soccer or whichever outdoor activity you can imagine! It feels more like a Lafayette lot than Oakland, but you are just 4 blocks from College Avenue, BART, Trader Joe’s, Market Hall, etc. And don’t forget that the highly desirable Chabot Elementary School* and playground are just one short block away!*
