Sparkling creekside beauty! Greeted by a front garden bursting with color and an inviting front porch, this easy-living Redwood Heights home invites you to stay. Wood floors run throughout, guiding you through the living room with its floor-to-ceiling windows and fireplace, right through the bright dining room, and out French doors to a broad patio overlooking the creek. The outdoor space offers sheltered and sun-drenched areas, a separate brick terrace for dining, and veggie and flower beds alongside. The lower patio has yet more space for playing or entertaining, as well as a handy toolshed and sweet path overlooking the creek. The primary suite has pretty views across the rooftops and a delightfully updated private bath; the second bathroom is updated as well. Downstairs behind the garage is a large bonus/home office with patio access. Garage is wired for EV, with shops, freeways, and transit close at hand.
Redwood Heights takes its name from a former logging road that winds into the Oakland Hills. Homes range in style and include Tudor, Craftsman, French Normandy, and ranch, with some homes built as early as the 1920s.
The Redwood Heights Neighborhood Association is dedicated to preserving a sense of community through events such as block parties and barbecues. The Redwood Heights Recreation Center is used by locals of all ages for weekend gatherings and classes including dance, cooking, and karate.
