It is not every day that great opportunities come along in the frenetic world of real estate in the East Bay, but with 3204 HELEN STREET we have a stunning 3 bedroom and 2.5 bath single-family home that was expertly built to exacting standards and beautifully crafted.

Nestled privately off Helen Street, a short well landscaped walkway takes you from your off-street parking to the front door with its front garden and lovely fountain.

A semi-formal entry leads to the kitchen with its stunning details and fixtures. The island and counter tops are white quartz which add to the modern feel throughout, as does the blue penny tile behind the stove. In the middle of the great room is the dining area which in turn takes you to the living area with its inviting fire place surrounded by a custom walnut and tile bookshelf. It’s a delightful space made extra special due to the garden that lies beyond. With the sliders open on warm nights it feels like the whole room doubles in size. On the back wall is a terrific mural by artist Mike Morales adding an extra modern flare. 

Up the stairs we come to the middle two bedrooms. They each have copious closets and share a fabulous bath with twin vanities and a shower tub. Finally, it’s up to the secluded master suite. The master bedroom has lovely west facing light, two closets and a superbly detailed master bath. But the real joy here is the private roof deck that’s perfect for the morning coffee or evening cocktail.

3204 Helen is located in the center of Dogtown: one of the most diverse, fun and non-conformist communities of Oakland. Here’s a chance for the discerning buyer to have a one of a kind home in the center of one of the most exciting places in the Bay Area.

Visiting her home town of Oakland, Gertrude Stein said, “There’s no there there.” With all the changes over the past decade, Oakland has finally become a destination of its own. The Uptown Project, Jerry Brown’s 10K Housing Initiative, new housing development and the rising value of condominiums, lofts and single-family homes have contributed to Downtown Oakland’s success.

Downtown is the heart of Oakland, and the city’s changes are most evident here. San Francisco Magazine named it "the" place to live and play. The area now offers all the benefits of other metropolitan centers. Civic and cultural centers, residential and retail buildings—both new and historic—are focused around Oakland's City Center which features an on-site BART station.

A unique area is Old Oakland. Surrounding Washington Street, old town features Swan’s Market, a farmer’s market and many upscale bars and restaurants. Some of which include Levende East, Tamarindo Antojeria, B Restaurant, The Trappist, Cafe 817, Cock A Doodle Cafe and Air Lounge. The city’s art scene and nightlife have flourished as more and more people migrate to the area. Good times can always be had at Luka’s Taproom, Flora, The Uptown and Maxwell’s Lounge. Caffe Verbena and LeCheval are also city favorites. And classic performance halls like the Paramount Theater and Fox Theatre make for an exciting night out on the town.
